The International Olympic Committee on Wednesday picked the former president
of Senegal's Supreme Court Youssoupha Ndiaye to head its Ethics Commission
following the death of Keba Mbaye.
A former sports minister, Ndiaye has been an IOC member since 2002 and will
be joined on the commission by Britain's Craig Reedie who replaces Japanese
member Chiharu Igaya.
A former chairman of the British Olympic Association, Reedie has been a
member of the IOC since 1994 and was a key member in London's successful bid to
host the 2012 Olympics.
Igaya recently resigned from his post as member of the commission due to a
conflict of interests following his nomination as a member of Tokyo's bid team
to host the 2016 Games.
