IOC Member Who Moves the Sports World
Only 107 people in the world... IOC member who moves the sports world with powerful authority
Decisions on selecting the Olympic venue and adopting official events... Although it is an honorary position, you are treated as a state guest.
Following the late Lee Kun-hee, former chairman of the Samsung Group, his son-in-law Kim Jae-yeol, chairman of the International Skating Union (ISU) and president of the Samsung Economic Research Institute, is a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), a position that controls the world of global sports.
IOC members have tremendous authority to decide on key issues of the IOC.
A representative example is the selection of the Olympic host site. 카지노
The maximum number of IOC members is 115, and consists of individual members (maximum 70 members), National Olympic Committee (NOC) representatives, International Federation (IF) representatives, and athlete members (maximum 15 each).
Until recently, 99 people were active, but at the general meeting on the 17th, 8 people, including member Kim Jae-yeol, were added, bringing the number to 107.
Due to their high status, IOC members are often referred to as 'nobles of the world of sports,' and many of them are actually royal families and nobles.
Princess Anne, daughter of Queen Elizabeth of England, Prince Albert II of Monaco, and royal families and nobles from the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar were named.
Like Chairman Kim Jae-yeol, who joined the group as IF representative, sports administrators and businessmen are also active.
IOC members are responsible for making major decisions in the international sports world, such as selecting the host site for the Winter and Summer Olympics and adopting official Olympic events.
No matter what category a committee member is in, everyone exercises the same authority and voting rights.
According to the introduction on the IOC website, International Olympic Committee members do not represent countries within the IOC, but are 'natural persons' who represent the IOC in their respective countries, and play a role in representing and promoting the interests of the IOC and the Olympic movement.
This means that there is autonomy in various decisions.
The basic nature of IOC members is 'unpaid honorary positions', but expenses for various public activities are supported.
When performing duties as a committee member, no matter where in the world you go, you are treated like a ‘state guest.’
Not only are transportation and accommodation provided, but you can also travel to and from each country without a visa.
The IOC stipulates in the Olympic Charter that the retirement age of IOC members is 80 years old for members elected before 1999, and 70 years old thereafter.
However, the IOC has made an exception so that the term of office of up to five members can be extended for up to four years through a vote at the IOC General Assembly even after retirement age.
In the case of athlete committee members, the term of office is set at 8 years.
Although it is not a position to represent each country, it is true that countries that produce many IOC members are naturally considered to have strong influence in the international sports world.
Including the results of this general meeting, France has the most with 4, followed by China, Japan, and Italy with 3 each.
In addition, Korea has three members, with Chairman Kim joining the existing Korean Sports Council President Lee Ki-heung and Yoo Seung-min.
Sweden and Germany also increased to 3.
If Park In-bee, a women's golfer, is elected as the new athlete commissioner during next year's Paris Olympics when Commissioner Yoo Seung-min's term ends, the number of Korean IOC members could remain at three for a considerable period of time.
Since it is a position where important decisions are made, the ‘shadow’ is as clear as the ‘light’ for IOC members.
Corruption cases involving IOC members often come to the fore when it comes to selecting an Olympic host site or adopting an official event.
In the recent summer Olympics, 2020, Tokyo, which was selected as the host city during the hosting process, was accused of distributing money and valuables to some IOC members under the guise of a consulting contract.
At the time, Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) Chairman Takeda Snekazu resigned from his position as an IOC member and gave up his bid for a second term as JOC Chairman.
