IOC Present Jacques Rogge to Run for a Second Term as IOC President

Jacques Rogge, the current president of International Olympic Committee (IOC), has recently announced his candidature for a second four-year term as IOC president. He was elected IOC president in 2001 for an eight-year term which will finish next year and the next IOC election will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark.

There is a possibility Jacques Rogge might win the election unopposed for a second term as IOC president because there is no other IOC member likely to run for the presidential post in IOC. The senior members IOC members like vice president Lambis Nikolaou appreciated the decision of Jacques Rog to stand for a second term in IOC office. During his first term as IOC president, two Olympic Games- 2004 Athens Olympic Games and 2008 Beijing Olympic Games- were successfully held.
