LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Richard Carrion has resigned as head of the IOC finance commission following his failed bid for the IOC presidency.
The International Olympic Committee says Carrion resigned from his "different positions within the IOC," including as chairman of the finance commission.
He will continue as the IOC's negotiator of television rights deals outside Europe until February's 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
Carrion, a banking executive from Puerto Rico, remains a regular member of the IOC.
Carrion finished second in the Sept. 10 presidential election, which was won by Thomas Bach.
