General Assembly of the European Olympic Committees

The European Olympic family is gathered in Prague for the European Olympic Committees’ 44th General Assembly. The General Assembly rounds off an action packed year for the EOC that has seen the successful introduction of the European Games, the first continental multi-sports event for European athletes.

The EOC General Assembly – which is comprised of the EOC’s 50 member states and sister organisations such as the EOC’s EU Office in Brussels, as well as visiting delegations from upcoming Olympic Games, Youth Olympic Games, and the five candidate cities for the 2024 Olympic Games (Budapest, Hamburg, Los Angeles, Paris and Rome) – will hear reports, presentations and discussions about the EOC’s activities over the past year. As well as important administrative items, the General Assembly agenda includes a vote on the Best European Young Athlete of the Year 2015, with five candidates shortlisted. The winning athlete will be announced at a Gala Dinner at Prague Castle on the evening of the first day.

During the official opening of the General Assembly this morning, delegates observed a minute’s silence in memory of all the victims of recent terror attacks, particularly those which affected members of the European family in Turkey, Russia and France.
