IFSC President Marco Scolaris is in Lima, Peru, for the 130th IOC Session, taking place from September 13-16. The Session kicked-off with the opening ceremony yesterday in the Gran Teatro Nacional of the Peruvian capital. The members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) were welcomed by IOC President Thomas Bach and President of Peru Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, and a special show was staged for the guests.
This year, the host cities for the Games of the XXXIII Olympiad 2024 and the Games of the XXXIV Olympiad 2028 will be elected. The Session will also take stock at half time of the implementation of the Olympic Agenda 2020 reforms. Last year, sport climbing and four other additional events included in the Olympic Agenda 2020 were approved at the 129th IOC Session in Rio de Janeiro. President Bach emphasised that with the reform programme, the IOC is “showing a sceptical world that we are making the Olympic Movement stronger, that we are living up to our values and responsibilities.”
