LONDON -- Officials with knowledge of the decision say new IOC president Thomas Bach will hold a four-day retreat of his policy-making body next month to discuss the future of the Olympics.

The Olympic officials tell The Associated Press that the executive board will meet from Dec. 11-14 in the Swiss lakeside resort of Montreux. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting hasn't been announced.

The brainstorming sessions are expected to cover a range of issues, including possible changes to the Olympic sports program, a review of the bid city process and a proposed raising of the 70-year age limit for IOC members.

The retreat will follow the regularly scheduled meeting of the executive board in Lausanne on Dec. 10.
