Larry Probst Elected To Serve Another Four Years As USOC Chair
Larry Probst yesterday was elected to serve another four-year term as USOC Chair. The term would have been his last, but a change in by-laws adopted following the Tagliabue Report in '10 means he could serve again. Probst: “What I said to the board was it’s been a privilege to chair the organization the last four years. I think we’ve made some good progress.” He added he and USOC CEO Scott Blackmun “work really well as a team and the two of us are committed to taking this organization to new levels of excellence.”
In addition to re-electing Probst, the board named USSA CEO Bill Marolt and Whitney Ping, a Stanford alum and member of the '04 Olympic table tennis team, to the board. They replace Braves Exec VP/Business Operations Mike Plant and Jair Lynch, a gymnast on the '96 Olympic team, respectively.
