IOC president asks G20 leaders to support Olympic mission

International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach on Saturday underlined the importance of upholding Olympic values while attending the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan. Bach said he asked the G20 leaders to support the mission of the Olympics by respecting the diversity of humankind. He also highlighted the IOC's aim to invest in youth, education, health and the development of athletes around the world, and not to be driven by profits alone as that is against the Olympic values.
