Thomas Bach re-elected as IOC President

The International Committee of Sports for the Deaf expresses the sincerest congratulations to Thomas Bach on being re-elected as President of the International Olympic Committee at the recent 137th IOC Session.

Without any doubt ICSD recognizes the decisive role that President Bach has played over the last years to lead the Olympic Movement to move towards a new sport era. The results of the voting fully show the recognition of his big personal contribution to the development of the Olympic Movement and the promotion of sports in the world. Dr. Bach has shown great leadership skills in his first eight-year term, not only through his Olympic Agenda 2020 reforms, but also in guiding the movement through the coronavirus pandemic that has significantly changed the world.

In these difficult times, we are confident that Dr. Bach can continue to drive the movement forward and secure a bright and sustainable future for decades to come.

Meanwhile, we would like to reaffirm ICSD’s willingness to continue productive cooperation with the IOC in all relative areas.
