PM Narendra Modi will inaugurate the 141st International Olympic Committee (IOC) session at Mumbai’s Jio World Centre, scheduled for October 14. This event plays a pivotal role in uniting IOC members to deliberate on crucial matters pertaining to the future of the Olympic Games.
Remarkably, this marks India’s second occasion hosting the IOC session, with a gap of approximately four decades since the previous event took place in New Delhi during the 86th session of the IOC in 1983.
The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) released a statement affirming that the 141st IOC Session in India underscores the nation’s commitment to promoting global collaboration, celebrating athletic excellence, and advancing the Olympic principles of friendship, respect, and excellence.
The statement emphasizes that this event creates a platform for engagement and the exchange of knowledge within the sports community. It further mentions that the session will have notable attendees, such as Thomas Bach, the President of the International Olympic Committee, other IOC members including Nita Ambani, as well as prominent figures in Indian sports and delegates from different sports federations, including the Indian Olympic Association.
