COE to chair British Olympic Association

SEBASTIAN Coe is to be elected as the chairman of the British Olympic Association after his only rival for the role withdrew from the race. Richard Leman, the boss of British hockey, was the other potential candidate but was a huge underdog given the success Coe had throughout the London 2012 Olympic Games. Coe will succeed Colin Moynihan in the role when the elections take place on 7 November.
