Tokyo, Japan, March 9, 2018: Tokyo will welcome the Olympic sports movement to the Japanese capital towards the end of this year as the countdown continues to the 2020 Olympic Games. The Association of National Olympic Committees, under the presidency of HE Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah, announced at the XXII General Assembly in Prague last November that the next ANOC General Assembly would be in Tokyo.
Over 1,000 delegates from 205 National Olympic Committees, International Federations, the International Olympic Committee, Games Organising Committees and other stakeholders attended the last ANOC General Assembly in the Czech Republic and Tokyo can expect the same this year in the next host city of the Summer Olympics.
The dates have been confirmed and appear on the calendar of the ANOC website (www.anocolympic.org). One of the highlights of the week will undoubtedly be the ANOC Awards on Wednesday, November 28, when the best female and male athletes from each of the five Olympic continental associations are honoured.
The ANOC Awards was established by the ANOC President and held for the first time in Bangkok in 2014, meaning Tokyo 2018 will be the fifth edition. The PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics will have a big influence on the results, particularly in Asia, North America and Europe, but other major international sports events will come into consideration as the year progresses.
The ANOC calendar for Tokyo is:
*November 26-27: Meetings of ANOC Commissions and Working Groups
*November 27: Meeting of ANOC Executive Council
*November 28-29: XXIII ANOC General Assembly
*November 28: ANOC Awards 2018
