Singapore's Ng Ser Miang to run for IOC presidency, say sources
Singaporean Ng Ser Miang is set to announce his candidacy for the presidency of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) this week.
An official with knowledge of the decision told the Associated Press that the 64-year-old will declare himself a candidate on Thursday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the announcement has yet to be made.
The Straits Times understands that Ng is scheduled to deliver remarks at an event in Paris on Thursday.
He is set to run against Thomas Bach from Germany, who is also a IOC vice-president. Bach announced his candidacy last week.
