The Executive Committee of the European Olympic Committees (EOC) met virtually to officially open the calendar on its 50th anniversary year, which will be commemorated at the 50th EOC General Assembly in Athens on 16-17 April.

EOC Acting President Niels Nygaard opened the meeting with a recap of the activities undertaken since the last ExCo meeting in late November. Highlights included the ongoing preparations for the European Games Krakow-Malopolska 2023, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decision on the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), the situation surrounding the Belarusian National Olympic Committee (NOC), and a meeting on 1 December with EU ministers regarding sport’s role in Europe, at which Nygaard spoke on behalf of the Olympic Movement in Europe.

The Acting President also expressed his hope that the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 would go ahead as planned this summer, despite the worsening COVID-19 conditions.

The International Committee of Mediterranean Games would like to congratulate  EOC on the golden jubilee and express its confidence that the excellent cooperation between the two organizations will continue with much more strength in the years to come.
