Stephen Wilson of the AP, Hiroki Shoda of Kyodo News, and Sven Busch of DPA will join ATR editor Ed Hula Wednesday, May 24, at SportAccord in Quebec City.
"We've had IOC members, federation leaders and heads of organizing committees for past ATR Newsmaker events. For the first time we have three of the leading Olympic beat journalists in the world," Hula said.
"Our panel represents the U.S., Japan, and Germany, giving a true global perspective to the discussion." The panel will also take questions from the audience so delegates are encouraged to come prepared.
