The GUARDIAN’s Owen Gibson reports a day after celebrating Team Great Britain's “best medal haul in over a century,” British Olympic Association Chair COLIN MOYNIHAN “revealed plans to step down more than a year early." Moynihan, who has “been in the job for seven years, is the first senior sports administrator to exit in what is likely to be a period of upheaval amid uncertainty as to the future shape of the post-Games landscape.” Moynihan's term “had not been due to end until November 2013.” Moynihan said that he "was ‘passing on the baton’ to his successor early in order to give him or her time to prepare for the Sochi 2014 Winter Games and participate in the debate over the BOA's future role” (GUARDIAN, 8/14).
