IOC to Meet with Faroes

The IOC and the Faroe Islands will be meeting this month in what a Faroese sports leader calls “an important first step” in the Faroes’ quest for IOC recognition. The FCSOC launched its latest campaign to get into the Olympics earlier this year. If it succeeds, it would be the culmination of an ambition that is 40 years old.

Press release from aroundtherings.com: The IOC and the Faroe Islands will be meeting this month in what a Faroese sports leader calls “an important first step” in the Faroes’ quest for IOC recognition.

The exact date for the meeting has not been finalized, according to Jon Hestoy, the vice president of the Faroese Confederation of Sports and Olympic Committee (FCSOC). But he tells Around the Rings that the IOC Director of NOC Relations Pere Miró and IOC Head of Institutional Relations & Governance Jérôme Poivey are scheduled to attend, along with Danish NOC President Niels Nygaard, who also sits on the European Olympic Committees Executive Committee.

The FCSOC launched its latest campaign to get into the Olympics earlier this year. If it succeeds, it would be the culmination of an ambition that is 40 years old.
