Former IOC honcho dies

LAUSSANE, Switzerland (AP) - Gunnar Ericsson, a long-time International Olympic Committee executive and former member of the executive committee, has died. He was 94.

The IOC says on its website that the former Swedish parliamentarian died Tuesday but did not provide a cause of death.

IOC President Thomas Bach says Ericsson "personified the Olympic values and was a true Olympic gentleman. The IOC will always remember him with deep gratitude and great respect."

Ericsson served on the executive board from 1988-92.
