The Athletes’ Commission (AC) of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) today received the full support of the IOC Executive Board (EB) for a set of recommendations in regard to Rule 50 of the Olympic Charter and Athlete Expression at the Olympic Games. Rule 50 provides a framework to protect the neutrality of sport and the Olympic Games.

AS PART OF THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE IOC ATHLETES’ COMMISSION’S RECOMMENDATIONS, THE EXECUTIVE BOARD (EB) OF THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC) HAS APPROVED THE RULE 50.2 GUIDELINES FOR THE OLYMPIC GAMES TOKYO 2020.

A four-year plan for 2021 to 2024 that will enable a million young people affected by displacement to have access to safe sport has been approved by the Board of the Olympic Refuge Foundation (ORF).

The Olympic Refuge Foundation today reaffirmed its commitment to leveraging sport to protect and support young people affected by displacement worldwide.

The IOC Refugee Athlete Scholarship has given a young boxer the support he needs to train in hopes of qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics – something that just months ago looked all but impossible.
