Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) president John Coates has been voted in as an IOC vice-president.
The election took place at Friday's on-line International Olympic Committee session.
Coates is one of two new vice-presidents elected by IOC members, joining Ng Ser Miang from Singapore. Coates was previously a vice-president from 2013-17.
His second term, for four years, puts him back on the IOC Executive Board, which consists of IOC president Thomas Bach, four vice-presidents and 10 other elected members.
He is also chair of the IOC Legal Affairs Commission and the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games Coordination Commission.
Coates said he was grateful for the opportunity to continue his service to the IOC in the role of vice-president along with his other responsibilities.
"This is a very important time for the Olympic movement globally. In this time of both challenges and great opportunities, I'm delighted to be supporting IOC president Thomas Bach in strengthening the Olympic movement globally through this period," Coates said.
His vice-presidency will complete his final four years as an IOC member.
