Leading representatives of the Olympic Movement have gathered at the Olympic House in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Friday, for the first day of the Olympic Summit.

The agenda of the summit is due to focus on a number of topics of interest and concern, including preparations for the upcoming Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, IOC governance, IOC Digital Strategy, the Athletes’ Support Programme and the fight against doping and protection of clean athletes.

The participants of the two-day event include President of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Stanislav Pozdnyakov, outgoing WADA President Craig Reedie, President of FIFA Gianni Infantino, all of whom were not filmed arriving at the IOC headquarters.

The Olympic Summit is taking place on the eve of the crucial WADA Executive board meeting, that will also be held in Lausanne on December 9, in order to consider its compliance committee’s (CRC) report on the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), following recent findings of the alleged manipulation of Moscow laboratory data. Previously WADA’s compliance committee recommended imposing a four-year Olympic ban on Russia and also to withhold the right of the country to host major international sport events.
