0

BERLIN: International Olympic Committee (IOC) presidential hopeful Thomas Bach on Friday pleaded for more flexibility regarding the Olympic Games program, emphasizing the need to appeal to the younger generation. While maintaining that the restriction on the number of athletes should remain the same, IOC vice-president Bach added that the organization need not be obliged to cap the number of summer sports at its current limit of 28. Bach also proposed creating a specialized Olympic TV channel to promote sports rarely seen in the four-year gaps between Games.
