Coe eyes top job at British Olympic Association
LONDON (AP) — Sebastian Coe says he wants to become chairman of the British Olympic Association after successfully overseeing the organization of the London Games.
He will be looking to succeed Colin Moynihan, who a month ago said he would be leaving after the Olympics.
Coe announced his interest in the job following a parade in London marking the end of the Olympics and Paralympics. No one else has declared interest in the position.
Coe, a two-time Olympic gold medalist in the 1,500 meters, is an IAAF vice president. He has also said he wants to replace Lamine Diack as head of track and field's governing body in three years.
