New IOC President Bach To Resign From Controversial Arab-German Trade Group
Published September 17, 2013
CHANGING THE MINDSET: The AFP reported Bach said that "he had another goal -- that of fundamentally changing the mindset of cities that bid for the Olympic Games." He said, "I want to see a new approach to the bidding process. At the moment in our bid process we are asking too much, too early of the candidates. Honestly I can say that before I go into a Question and Answer session with the bid cities for no matter what Olympic Games I already know the answers, because I have heard them all before. I would like to try and change this mentality" (AFP, 9/16).
