Italy’s attempt to host the 2024 Olympic Games is a chance to clean up the scandal-plagued capital city Rome, the bid’s chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo said on Monday.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is an international, non-profit, non-governmental organisation based in Lausanne, Switzerland, created by Pierre, Baron de Coubertin, on 23 June 1894 with Demetrios Vikelas as its first president. Today its membership consists of 100 active members, 32 honorary members, and one honour member. The IOC is the supreme authority of the worldwide modern Olympic movement. The current IOC president is Thomas Bach. He was preceded by Jacques Rogge.
