The IOC executive board’s proposal will be voted on at its Paris Olympics session next month, and a possible venue is already being studied.

Bach explained that a new structure would be created within the IOC, but that it would be completely independent of the organizational and financial model of the traditional Olympic Games.

The IOC has been trying for years to connect with a younger generation of potential Olympic fans, as its traditional audience base gradually ages.
