YEREVAN, October 14. /TASS/. Hasty decisions regarding the new president of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC), viewed to replace its current chief Alexander Zhukov, is not an option, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"We must definitely not speak here about any hasty decisions or timeframes since you all may be well aware that President of the National Olympic Committee (Alexander) Zhukov is also a member of the International Olympic Committee and not a single country in the world would allow losing its membership in the organization," Peskov told journalists.
"This is a very valuable post, so it would require Zhukov to take some time," Peskov added.
Zhukov, who headed the ROC since 2010, announced on Tuesday his intentions to resign from the post of the country’s governing Olympic body. The following media reports suggested that two-time Russian Olympic Champion Yelena Isinbayeva could replace Zhukov in his post, but there were no official confirmations as of yet.
