Krasnodar, 30 August. Jacques Rogge headed the International Olympic Committee from 2001 to 2013, under his IOC presidency Sochi received the honor to host the XXII Olympic Winter Games and XI Paralympic Winter Games in 2014.
The head of Sochi, Aleksey Kopaigorodsky, sent an official letter of condolences to the IOC headquarters in Lausanne. The mayor of the resort also expressed his condolences through his personal accounts on social networks:
Tragic news came from Lausanne, Switzerland today. Jacques Rogge, the Honorary President of the International Olympic Committee, is no longer among us. He was not only the head of the largest sports organization in the world and a high ranking official devoted to Olympic principles, but also a great athlete.

Under Jacques Rogge, on July 4, 2007, a landmark decision was made to hold the XXII Olympic Winter Games and the XI Paralympic Winter Games 2014 in Sochi. As President of the IOC, he steered the entire preparation phase.

Jacques Rogge was sincerely happy when the Russian resort was chosen to be the capital of the Olympics, repeatedly visited our city as a member of the Coordination Committee, navigated the preparations for the Games and the progress of construction of sports facilities. He always highly noted the fast pace and professional approach of the Russian organizers of the 2014 Olympics.

Jacques Rogge took part in the opening of the Museum of Sports Glory of the resort city of Sochi and made the first entry in the visitors’ book. Now we treasure his record and the museum itself as a memory of an incredible man who made his great personal contribution to the development of Sochi, helped our city to acquire the status of a sports capital and an international resort.

I express my deepest condolences to all participants in the international Olympic movement, to all colleagues, family and friends of Jacques Rogge’s. This is an irreparable loss for the entire world sports community.

We in Sochi mourn with the whole world! Thank you, dear Jacques Rogge! The memory of you in our city - the capital of the White Olympics 2014 will be eternal!
