SportAccord, Association Of National Olympic Committees Join Forces With New Partnership
A new agreement "has been officially signed" between the Association of National Olympic Committees and SportAccord in Lausanne, according to Duncan Mackay of INSIDE THE GAMES. It is "set to signal a close working agreement between the two organisations, including the establishment of a Beach Games." The partnership aims at connecting Int'l Sports Federations and National Olympic Committees, also in partnership with the IOC, "in order to develop a global sports movement which respects the Olympic Charter and the ideals of the governing bodies, they claimed." SportAccord and ANOC "will closely collaborate and coordinate actions on a series of initiatives" (INSIDE THE GAMES, 11/4).
