Embarrassing cult of the President: On Bach way

That the General assemblies of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) are in full gallop gone through is not a new experience. But last Friday, at 136. Session, the first in the virtual space, of an approximately five-hour event for a full hour, so 20 percent of the total duration, in unctuous praise for the President were used, ushers in a new level of the personality cult, to Thomas Bach, the even for a pseudo-democratic organization like the IOC embarrassed worked.

Had to do these people, who are responsible for said to be the largest and most complex sporting event in the world in this difficult time, nothing better to do, as a love servant to flatter the boss? Apparently not. Every Athlete, the times tries in uncertain Corona, to safeguard the collection and in spite of all the doubts on his possible Olympic start to prepare, and the Assembly watched on Youtube, must have become pale. This also says it all but was on Thomas Bach's performance of duties. It is ruled. The claim of the club's athletes in Germany, to get more of a say in the design of the due to the pandemic to 2021 postponed games in Tokyo, and even in the presidential election next year, it will not appear as especially promising.

On Bach, you have a tremendous responsibility is focused, and he made the impression, as he dared to face the mammoth task of what he calls the self. Also to be decided already now to announce that he wants to be in 2021 for a further four years to choose speaks. On Bach's re-election there is no doubt. That he wants to make next spring, his personal choice of the session to the Olympic roots in Greece, alignment, points again to a pompous self-image of the 66-year-old Tauber Bishop Heimer's. Whether the fight against the Coronavirus will allow the physical meeting of the IOC members at all, but it remains an open question.
