Over 2, capsule 500 users stayed tuned to iSportconnect for live coverage of the 125th International Olympic Committee (IOC) Session in Buenos Aires.

iSportconnect provided a rolling coverage of the three major elections taking place at the Session and received positive feedback from users.

Starting on Saturday September 7, the iSportconnect live feed provided minute-by-minute updates and expert analysis on Tokyo’s election as the 2020 host city. This was repeated for Wrestling’s re-election into the Olympic programme and Thomas Bach’s election as the ninth IOC President.

Over the course of the Session, iSportconnect provided expert analysis from Tim Crow, Michael Payne, Keir Radnedge, Paul Freudensprung, Michael Pedersen and other professionals from the bidding, Olympic, governance and sponsorship sectors.

Ismail Uddin, iSportconnect News Editor and Steve Moorhouse, iSportconnect Features Writer, were in charge of the live feed and both said: “We both really enjoyed covering the 125th Session and providing our users with up-to-date coverage of the elections.

“We especially enjoyed speaking to experts to hear their side of the developments. It’s great to see so many people stayed with us throughout the weekend and into the Presidential election this week. Thank you!”
