Royal IOC Members

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) was created on June 23, 1894 by the Paris Congress to act as the supreme authority of the Olympic games.

Based in Lausanne, Switzerland, the IOC is governed by the Olympic Charter, whose philosophy is that "sport serves the harmonious development of man."

An IOC president is elected by secret ballot and serves for a term of eight years, at which time he or she can be re-elected for another four-year term. In Olympic history, there have been seven presidents:
  • Le Baron Pierre de Coubertin (France) -- 1896-1925
  • Demetrious Vikelas (Greece) 1896-1984
  • Le Comte Henri de Baillet-Latour (Belgium) 1925-1942
  • J. Sigfrid Edstrom (Sweden) 1946-1952
  • Avery Brundage (U.S.A.) 1952-1972
  • Lord Killanin (Ireland) 1972-1980
  • Juan Antonio Samaranch (Spain) 1980-2001
  • Jacques Rogge (Belgium) 2001-Today
