Mr Mario Mario Vázquez Raña  has informed the IOC President of his resignation from his positions as IOC member, IOC Executive Board member, President of Olympic Solidarity and President of the Association of the National Olympic Committees (ANOC).

The IOC would like to thank Mr Vázquez Raña for his great merits and contribution to the Olympic Movement for over 30 years.

The IOC will continue to benefit from the valuable experience of Mr Vázquez Raña through his role as President of Pan American Sports Organisation (PASO).

The IOC hopes that the upcoming ANOC General Assembly in Moscow next month will bring a message of unity and concord for the sake of the athletes who will compete in London this summer.
