MONTE-CARLO, December 8. /TASS/. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) ruled on Monday that Winter Olympics should feature only sports practiced on snow and ice, which makes it impossible to include chess in the program.
The committee is currently discussing in Monte-Carlo the 40-point plan proposed by IOC President Thomas Bach to reform the Olympic movement.
Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, the International Chess Federation (FIDE) president, earlier promised to seek the introduction of chess to the program of Winter Olympics.
