MOSCOW, May 31. /TASS/. SportAccord President Marius Vizer told TASS on Sunday he had resigned from his post, which he had been holding since 2013.
He said as a SportAccord president he had been focused on fairness and transparency and now leaving the post he hoped some day sport would be a transparent system and a model for society.
At the latest SportAccord General Assembly in Russia’s Black Sea resort city of Sochi in April 2015, Vizer came out with criticism of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and its President Thomas Bach over IOC development plans and its Programme-2020.
Following it, more than 20 various sports federations quitted the organization.
Set up on April 21, 1967 in Switzerland’s Lausanne, SportAccord Convention back then united 26 sports federations. The organization encourages and facilitates knowledge sharing among members and provides resources and expertise in relevant areas such as anti-doping, integrity, good governance, social responsibility and digital media. SportAccord member federations have initiated a number of regular multi-sport events, such as the World Combat Games, World Mind Games and World Beach Games.
