IOC Executive Board Approves Changes to Eventing Format for 2004 Olympics

Source :  FEI

During its meeting in Mexico on 26 November, the IOC Executive Board studied the proposal which was developed by the FEI to counter the IOC Programme commissionís recommendation to exclude Eventing from the Olympic programme. The FEI proposes to implement a shorter Olympic format along the lines of the existing CIC format.

The IOC Executive Board accepted FEIís proposal for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. According to IOC statement, the decision on the future of all discipline/events as part of the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing and onwards will be communicated after the next meeting of the IOC Executive Board in February 2003.

The FEI President HRH the Infanta DoŮa Pilar de Borbůn, presently in Mexico to attend the IOC session as IOC member commented: ďI believe that the efforts of the FEI to respond with concrete proposals to the concerns of the IOC Programme Commission have been appreciated by the IOC Executive Board. I would like also to emphasise once more the
tremendous support of all Equestrian National Federations around the world.Ē
