RIYADH: The Saudi Arabian Olympic Committee (SAOC) announced on Saturday the final list of members that will serve on its board until 2024, the SPA reported.
The list of nominees was decided via an election, confirmed by Saudi Minister of Sports Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal, and approved without any objections, the general committee said in a statement.
