International Olympics Committee session returns to India after 40 years in February 2023. International Olympics committee session was last held in 1983 on Indian Soil.
India wins the bid which will impart a great push towards achieving an environment that can enable gamut of players to have podium finishes.
International Olympic Committee (IOC) member Nita Ambani, on Saturday, made a presentation on the same to the IOC members in Beijing and the assembly unanimously voted in India’s favour to host the next ‘session’.
An Olympic Session is the general meeting of the members of the IOC and it’s supreme organ. All IOC Session decisions are final. The IOC has a total of 101 members with voting rights, who attend the sessions.
The Indian delegation, led by Ms Ambani, also included Indian Olympic Association (IOC) president Narinder Batra, Youth Affairs and Sports Minister Anurag Thakur and India’s first individual Olympic gold medalist Abhinav Bindra.
“It’s a great moment of pride for India as this Olympic session will inspire a youth-heavy population of the country to adapt to a vibrant sporting culture,” say those who were tracking developments.
The presentation to host the session is the first step towards India hosting the Youth Olympics somewhere around 2030 and making a serious effort to host a Summer Olympics in the coming decade.
Allotting of the Olympic session will once again make India a crucial and an exciting destination to nurture and grow the Olympic movement. “It is our mission to identify potential talent and guide them to the greatness of the world of sport,” Ms Ambani said.
To coincide with the Olympic session in 2023, Ms Ambani has proposed to launch a series of elite sports development programmes for youth across deprived communities. The session itself will be held in the month of May-June in Mumbai. This will bring a huge impetus for the games and their development in India.
