Technical Handbook 4 ANOC Introduction The Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) was established in June 1979 during the Constitutive General Assembly in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

ANOC now represents the interests of 206 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) across the five Olympic continents. ANOC is administered from its headquarters in the Olympic Capital, Lausanne, where it has been based since June 2010. ANOC strives to protect and promote the collective interests of the NOCs, delivering consistent, dedicated support and advocating on their behalf within the Olympic Family. ANOC also aims to strengthen the relationships between the NOCs and the Olympic Family for the benefit of the entire Olympic Movement.

TheANOCWorld Beach Games in San Diego ANOC’s vision was to develop a World Beach Games that would attract new audiences and provide a platform for NOCs to engage with millions of young people around the world. The ANOC Events Working Group, established in December 2013 and chaired originally by the ANOC President, was tasked with developing the concept for the Games. The Working Group was supported by international experts and collaborated with the IOC, International Federations and other Olympic stakeholders to ensure the Games would be sustainable and bring widespread benefits to the Olympic Movement.

Timothy Fok is the current chair of the ANOC Events Commission. The ANOC World Beach Games will deliver elite sport that excites: a dynamic beach, action and water sports programme featuring prominent, world-class athletes brought together in one truly global festival for the very first time. The event will be built on a new, sustainable multisport model, with 100% temporary venues operating in harmony with the world’s most captivating beach locations. Ultimately, the ANOC World Beach Games aims to be the pinnacle of global excellence in beach, action and water sports, connecting new disciplines and new stars to a new generation of fans.
