“On behalf of the entire Olympic Movement I would like to express our sincere thanks and great appreciation for Jean-Claude’s outstanding achievements throughout his Olympic career. Having already been a sporting legend as an athlete, he later dedicated himself to the IOC, its values and ideals – also with great success. In this respect, I could mention many ofhis accomplishments, but I know that he himself would consider his unique contribution to the fantastic success of the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games as his greatest achievement. Jean-Claude was a great ambassador of the Olympic ideals and I thank him for his many years of excellent service to the Olympic Movement.”
