On the last day of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the 120th IOC Session concluded today with the following decisions:

New IOC Members
The Session elected four new IOC members: Moon Dae-Sung, Alexander Popov, Claudia Bokel and Yumilka Ruiz–Luaces. They are new members of the Athletes’ Commission, to which they have been elected by their peers during the Beijing Games.

New Honorary Members
The Session also elected Roque Napoleón Muñoz Peña and Hein Verbruggen as honorary members.

Muñoz Peña has been an IOC member for 25 years, starting in 1983, and his term of office will expire at the end of 2008 due to the rules concerning age limits. He will become an honorary member from 1 January 2009 onwards. Hein Verbruggen, IOC member and Chairman of the Coordination Commission for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, has resigned as an IOC member and will become an honorary member immediately. He will conduct the review of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.

Olympic Orders
The Session decided to award Olympic Orders to Kai Holm and Youssoupha Ndiaye whose IOC membership will expire by the end of 2008 due to the rules concerning age limits.
