Senegal's Ndiaye to head Ethics Commissision

Updated: 2007-02-08 11:01

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.
