SEOUL, July 10 (Yonhap) -- Jacques Rogge, the outgoing president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), said Wednesday he will step aside for his successor once his term ends later this year, rather than exercise his membership in the Olympic body for another decade.
In a teleconference with international media, Rogge, 71, said he will not try to intervene in the business of the IOC and his successor. The new IOC president will be elected at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in September.
