(ATR) The ANOC secretary general will work with the world’s NOCs to prepare them for the inaugural European Games in Baku and Rio 2016.

As head of the IOC’s watchdog for the PyeongChang 2018 Games, the 67-year-old has her work cut out to address venue and budget issues.

Work for Olympic Solidarity and the Rio 2016 coordination commission will keep her busy. She also has the task of helping NOCs to work through the changes in IOC President Thomas Bach’s 40-point reforms package that was unanimously approved earlier this month.
