16 May 2022 – The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board (EB) will hold a meeting on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 May to prepare for the final day of the 139th IOC Session, which will be on Friday 20 May.
As a reminder, this Session opened on 3 February in Beijing, and the second part was on 19 February. The decision to conclude the Session in May was made in order to streamline the planned institutional meetings in Beijing because of the COVID-19 pandemic situation.
The IOC EB and Session are scheduled to receive updates on the activities of the Olympic Movement, the IOC commissions and the IOC administration, as well as reports from the Organising Committees for the Olympic Games.
All the meetings will be held in hybrid format – with some participants attending in-person at Olympic House in Lausanne, Switzerland, and others joining online.
An online press conference will take place after the IOC Session on Friday 20 May.
