53rd EOC General Assembly

From June 6 to 8, Bucharest hosted the General Assembly of the European Olympic Committees (EOC). The 53rd EOC General Assembly reviewed recent successes and the significant strength of the European Olympic movement ahead of a series of sporting events and activities at the continent's heart.

The General Assembly, held at the Palace of the Parliament, was attended by the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Mr. Thomas Bach, the presidents of European National Olympic Committees (ENOCs), and leaders of European and International federations.

Representatives of the Montenegrin Olympic Committee, including President Dušan Simonović, Secretary General Igor Vušurović, and Deputy Secretary General Maja Peković, also attended the Assembly.

On the first day, President Bach addressed the delegates, emphasising the strong relationship between the EOC and the IOC, particularly in their mission to use sport as a social development and peacebuilding catalyst.

During the General Assembly, members approved Istanbul as the host city for the 4th edition of the European Games in 2027.

At this year's Assembly, the Janez Kocijančič Awards for the best European Games athletes and the Piotr Nurowski Awards for the best young European athletes were presented.

Italian Jessica Rossi and Georgian Lasha Bekauri were the first recipients of the Janez Kocijančič Award, which, starting this year, is given to the best European Games athletes. The European Olympic Committee (EOC) established this award at the end of last year in honour of the former EOC president, who passed away in 2020.

Dušan Simonović, President of the Montenegrin Olympic Committee, expressed his satisfaction with the EOC's decision.

"Janez was a visionary leader whose dedication to the Olympic movement and sports development in Europe was incredible. His commitment, wisdom, and passion for promoting sporting excellence and unity among nations left an indelible mark on the sports community. He greatly supported young athletes and small national Olympic committees like ours.

Janez was a friend and mentor to many, including myself. The decision to present the award for the best athletes in his memory is a fitting tribute to a man who dedicated his life to Olympic values and the advancement of sport. It is a testament to his lasting impact and the respect he earned throughout his career," said Simonović.

In addition to the athlete awards, EOC Secretary General Raffaele Pagnozzi was awarded the EOC Order of Merit for his long and distinguished service to sport in Italy and Europe.

During the General Assembly, the newly appointed CEO of the EOC was introduced. Dr. Jan Lehmann began his role as the European Olympic Committees’ CEO on May 6th. Jan Lehmann was appointed after a rigorous selection procedure handled by Deloitte, which received 1,840 applications.
