As expected, International Olympic Committee members elected Thomas Bach of Germany as their new president. Bach had been considered the favorite going into Tuesday's vote at the IOC session in Buenos Aires. "Thank you very much to all of you," Bach said.

" Bach replaces Jacques Rogge, whose 12-year tenure ends at the close of the session. The IOC elects its president by secret ballot, handing him an eight-year term followed by the possibility of a four-year term.

His godfather is Juan Antonio Samaranch, the former president of the International Olympic Committee who, almost 85, still wields considerable influence.

Richard Carrion's best friend within the IOC is Juan Antonio Samaranch Jr., a member since 2001 and a key player in Madrid's bid for the 2012 Summer Games.

Popular Inc., a San Juan, Puerto Rico-based bank holding company, said it would close its sub-prime lending unit, a move that would cost the bank $39 million in charges and about 627 people their jobs. The company, owner of Banco Popular de Puerto Rico, plans to exit its wholesale nonprime mortgage origination business early in the current quarter and close its wholesale broker, retail and call-center units, said a federal filing Tuesday.

Jamie Dimon, the chairman and chief executive of JPMorgan Chase & Co., has quietly left the board of the New York Federal Reserve. Dimon didn't relinquish his board membership to silence critics who, in the middle of last year, saw a conflict of interest -- or at least an appearance of one -- after JPMorgan suffered an embarrassing loss in a risky bet, despite the New York Fed's oversight. "This is a clear example of the fox guarding the henhouse," Sen. Bernard Sanders (I-Vt.)

Gunilla Lindberg of Sweden on Wednesday became only the second woman elected vice president of the International Olympic Committee. Lindberg, 57, will serve a four-year term as vice president. An IOC member since 1996, she has been on the 15-member, policy-making executive board since 2000. Anita DeFrantz of Los Angeles, who served from 1997 to 2001, was the IOC's first female vice president. Lindberg called DeFrantz a "role model who encouraged women members to stand for election."

The fallout from the International Olympic Committee's stunning decision to drop wrestling from the Summer Games beginning in 2020 has drawn outrage from wrestling officials and competitors around the world. Former Olympic champion Cael Sanderson of the U.S. said Tuesday that his sport's appearance at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games would not be its last. "It might just awaken a sleeping giant here,” the 2004 Athens champion in 84-kilogram freestyle told the Associated Press.

BUENOS AIRES - Thomas Bach was doing media interviews Tuesday when Dmitry Chernyshenko, head of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic organizing committee, interrupted to hand Bach a cellphone. On the line was Russian President Vladimir Putin, the first head of state to speak with Bach after the German had been elected the ninth president of the International Olympic Committee. "We did not discuss the law," Bach said, laughing, after his brief conversation with Putin. But how the IOC deals with all the issues related to "the law," Russia's recent anti-gay legislation, is a serious challenge Bach immediately faces after becoming the eighth white European man in the IOC presidency.

A year ago, at the International Olympic Committee's 95th session in Puerto Rico, Juan Antonio Samaranch of Spain was elected by acclamation to a second term as president, establishing him as the most influential leader in the movement since Avery Brundage and perhaps even founder Pierre de Coubertin. But the message sent to Samaranch during the 96th session, which ended Thursday, was that the 94-member IOC is not the domain of one man, no matter how capable or popular he might be.
