ANOC Mourns Loss of Patrick Baumann
It is with great sadness that ANOC has learned that Patrick Baumann has passed away at the age of 51.
ANOC President Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah said:
“The entire ANOC family is deeply saddened and shocked by this tragic news. Patrick Baumann’s dedication to the promotion of sport and the Olympic Values was well-known and an inspiration to many of us around the world. In his capacity as GAISF President, ANOC had the pleasure of working closely with him to agree a landmark partnership agreement on the future of the World Beach Games. The long-term collaboration between ANOC and GAISF, that will benefit athletes, NOCs and IFs for generations, will be one of his many lasting legacies. The Olympic Movement owes him a great debt for his visionary leadership and his service. Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this desperately sad time.”
