Cinquanta no longer member of IOC after relinquishing ISU Presidency

Italy's Ottavio Cinquanta is no longer a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) after being replaced as President of the International Skating Union (ISU).

The 77-year-old stood down after 22 years at the helm of the world governing body last week following the election of Dutchman Jan Dijkema.

He has served as an IOC member since 1996.

His name still remains on the official list of the IOC members published on the bodies website, but a spokesperson has confirmed to insidethegames that he has relinquished his position as an automatic response to standing-down as President.

This means he will not appear as an IOC member during August's IOC Session in Rio de Janeiro, although it is possible he could still be considered for an IOC honorary member position.
