One of the most powerful

Sheikh Ahmad has been one of the most powerful sports in the world for years.

It is described as "The King Maker".

From the role in the scene he had a long time in the game when he made some of the most important decisions.

For example, he should have been central when Thomas Bach won the IOC's presidency.

But now it's angry. Shaykh Ahmad has several accusations against him and struggles for his life in sports politics.

This battle began when he appeared in court papers from New York last year.

His name was not in the documents, but other information was identified as one of them, football player Richard Lai explained that he was mistreated.

After that it did not take long before he withdrew from his international football.

But now he is also accused of converting videos as part of a plot against two government members in Kuwait. The case is being investigated by the Swiss police.

The Sports Association Response

He rejects all accusations, but he withdrew from the IOC office last week. And now he is forced to temporarily abandon his post as president of ANOC.

Therefore, as it happened, it caused reactions.

"It seems that the Western world puts policies ahead of the principle, wrote Nick Butler, sports commentary in ARD.

– Where are the voices from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Switzerland? asked Jens Weinreich.

According to several journalists who attended the meeting, Alfred Emmanuel from the small island of St. Lucia was the only one who asked critical questions about Sheikh Ahmed.

Sportsman Tom Tvedt and head of the International Department of NIF Magnus Sverdrup are in Tokyo.

They explain that the reason they did not intervene was that they thought Sajeik Ahmad had decided to go aside "regardless of the country's attempts to support the submissions" during a session on Wednesday.

– It would definitely be against Norway if it became necessary to vote for his candidacy for the presidency. However, this was not applicable, Norwegian sports attacks are written in a statement for Aftenposten.

– A strange seat

However, they say that the meeting was seen as "special."

The statement read that Sjeik Ahmad first confirmed to the assembly that he would leave before leaving the room. At that time, the ANOC election commission confirmed the election of Ahmed Ahmed to retire as presidential candidate.

But then, "a discussion began in which some countries say that Sheikh Ahmad should certainly be elected president".

"It felt like a strange sight from the Norwegian side," says the NIF peaks.

Furthermore, they describe that the Election Commission again informed Sheikh Ahmad's decision to move and asked him to confirm it to the assembly.

"After the break for lunch, Sjeik Ahmad returned and confirmed that he did not make a choice," the Norwegian delegation said.
