The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has agreed an eight-year extension to its IOC Athlete Career Programme (ACP) contract with Adecco Group.

The programme is designed to assist athletes around the world with a smooth transition into life after sport.Adecco has worked with the IOC on ACP since its inception in 2005 and since then has provided its services to over 10,000 Olympians from over 100 countries, although the programme itself is only delivered in 30 countries. It will have a presence in the Athletes’ Village at this year’s London Games.

IOC president Jacques Rogge describes the extension as “another example of how committed the Olympic movement is to athletes”.
