During today's general assembly of the Latvian Olympic Committee (LOC), Zorzs Tikmers, the LOC's former general-secretary, was voted in as the organization's new president, reports LETA.

Tikmers received 84 votes from delegates, while one member abstained.

Meanwhile, the general-secretary of the Latvian Tennis Union Karlis Lejnieks was voted in as the new general-secretary of the LOC today.

The post of LOC president became vacant after long-time president Aldons Vrublevskis announced that he will be stepping down in March.

The LOC general assembly was originally scheduled for March, but was postponed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.

Vrublevskis had served as LOC president since 2004.
