Hats in the Rings

In three months time Jacques Rogge the President of the IOC  end his 12 year term in office and in true Olympic tradition the race is on to replace him in the top job.

Five candidates are currently on the starting blocks. Taiwan’s CK Wu, Puerto Rico’s Richard Carrion were already in the starting position as were IOC vice presidents Ng Ser Miang from Singapore and Thomas Bach from Germany.

Joining them last week is Denis Oswald the head of the International Rowing Federation, who was involved with the 2012 London games.

Bach is currently the favourite to win the esteemed position but word is that former World Pole Vault Champion Sergei Bubka would well be a late entrant.  Ukrainian Bubka is currently challenging Lord Sebastian Coe for the top job in International Athletics, should he come second in that race many believe he may well enter a new event, the race for the head of the IOC. Then again he may hedge his bets and compete for both.

Many are asking due to his failure to win an Olympic gold if he has again set the bar too high in hoping to attain such a position. All will be revealed in the coming months.
