03 Nov 2017

Prague, Czech Republic, November 3, 2017: The IOC’s Olympic Solidarity reflected on a successful quadrennial for 2013-2016 and reminded National Olympic Committees of the riches available in the new plan for 2017-2020 on the second morning of the 22nd ANOC General Assembly at the Prague Hilton Hotel on Friday.p>

Olympic Solidarity, which is responsible for distributing the IOC’s vast TV revenues from Olympic Games broadcasters to the NOCs around the world, pointed out that 18,000 athletes had benefited from a number of programmes in the previous four-year period, including athlete scholarships, team training and youth identification.

OS Director Pere Miro also provided details of the scholarships for coaches (650) and courses run by International Federations (1,000), as well as sports administration and sports management courses.

The 2013-2016 investment of 440 million USD has been increased by 16 per cent to 509 million USD for the new quadrennial 2017-2020, with 210 million USD (41 per cent) for the OS-managed World Programme out of the Lausanne HQ and 222 million USD (44 per cent) for the five Continental Associations to run their own Continental Programme.

The third part of the OS funding, along with the World Programme and Continental Programme, is the subsidies for participation in the Olympic Games (10 per cent).

The NOCs were reminded that they have been allocated 145,000 USD for each of the coming four years, making a total of 580,000 USD for the quadrennial. This is comprised of 45,000 USD as an administration subsidy from the World Programme and 100,000 USD for NOC activities from the Continental Programme.

This is the basic funding for all 205 NOCs guaranteed from OS, with much more available for courses, athlete scholarships and other initiatives.

*The second morning of the General Assembly also included updates by the organising committees of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, Tokyo 2020, Beijing Winter Olympics in 2022 and the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne in 2020.

The latter event will feature 1,880 athletes in two “waves” of participation, effectively splitting the Winter YOG into two phases of participation, and organisers will focus on total gender equity in the sports. Ski mountaineering will join the more established winter sports on the Winter YOG programme for 2020.

*Peace and Sport, the World Olympians’ Association and the International University Sports Federation (FISU) also made presentations, with FISU signing a Memorandum of Understanding with ANOC for future cooperation.

*In other news, the ANOC Athletes Commission will organise a Continental Athletes’ Forum in Asia in 2018.
