Tsunekazu Takeda has been re-elected for 10th consecutive two-year term as President of the Japanese Olympic Committee at an Executive Board meeting today.

Takeda, a member of the International Olympic Committee, was first elected as President of the JOC in October 2001.

He had led Tokyo's successful bid for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 

The 69-year-old Takeda will be joined by a new head of development, All Japan Judo chairman Yasuhiro Yamashita, with Japan Skating Federation chief Seiko Hashimoto as vice-president.

Also named to vice-presidents are Japan Rowing Association executive Eisuke Hiraoka and Yasuo Saito, the former Japanese Ambassador to France.

Hiraoka will also continue his role as the JOC's executive director.
