Mario Vzquez_Raa_talking_into_microphoneMarch 15 - Mario Vázquez Raña today surprisingly resigned as the President of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) and the head of Olympic Solidarity, blaming Kuwait's Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah and Ireland's Patrick Hickey for forcing him out following an "insane and aggressive" campaign.
