Former Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic is one of the five candidates nominated for members of the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
The other candidates are Briton Sebastian Coe, President of World Athletics, Saudi princess Reema Bandar Al-Saud, Maria de la Caridad Colón Ruenes of Cuba and Battushig Batbold of Mongolia.
The appointment will be confirmed at an IOC session to be held virtually on July 17.
“With the election of these five candidates, the IOC Session and the entire Olympic Movement would benefit from an extremely valuable range of skills and expertise. We are also bringing up the female membership to 39,” IOC President Thomas Bach has said.
