Grand Duke Henri as well as his brother-in-law's sister Princess Nora are currently in Buenos Aires, Argentina to participate in the 125th IOC session which kicked off with the opening ceremony at the Teatro Colón yesterday evening.

Following in the footsteps of his father, Grand Duke Henri has been a member of the International Olympic Committee since 1998. Princess Nora, whose husband was an Olympic bobsledder and who is likewise following in her father's footsteps, has been a member of the IOC since 1984.

The 125th IOC session will chose the host city of the 2020 Olympic Games between Turkey's largest city Istanbul, the capital of Japan, Tokyo, and Madrid, Spain's capital. In addition, the election of a new president of the IOC will be taking place on September 10, the last day of the session.
