The International Olympic Committee’s 137th Session will be held by videoconference and streamed on the IOC’s YouTube channel from Wednesday through Friday of this week. The session will be headlined by the re-election of Thomas Bach as IOC President.

The session will be streamed online here on the IOC YouTube page beginning on Wednesday.

The session was originall scheduled to take place in Athens, Greece, but will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceedings are set to start with a report from Bach, before the Session hears of the activities of the IOC Commissions and administration. After a discussion on the Olympic Agenda 2020, Bach will be re-elected. Bach was first elected IOC President in 2013.

Thursday’s session will have reports on Tokyo 2020, Beijing 2022 and Paris 2024. Friday’s program is dominated by Olympic Agenda 2020+5, which is Bach’s blueprint for the next four years in the Olympic program.
