Sheikh Ahmad re-elected as Olympic Council of Asia president

Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Ahmed Al-Sabah has been re-elected as president of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) for an eighth term, despite an ongoing forgery case in Switzerland.

The news was one of a number of developments to come out of the OCA’s general assembly held in Bangkok, Thailand over the weekend. One of the most powerful figures in world sport, Sheikh Ahmad will serve a new four-year term after the OCA’s Ethics Commission said no action would be taken following a review into the cases concerning the Kuwaiti, as well as vice-president, and Japanese Olympic Committee (JOC) president, Tsunekazu Takeda.
