Dr Rogge, President of the International Olympic Committee from 2001 to 2013, has dedicated a life entirely to sport. He represented Belgium at three editions of the Olympic Games with a period as a rugby player with 16 national titles won in his career. Thanks to his commitment, the IOC Olympic Foundation for Culture and Heritage has carried out significant projects.
The deepest condolences to the family.
