BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) - With three major votes on the agenda, Olympic leaders begin weeklong meetings on Wednesday that will bring a close to Jacques Rogge's 12-year reign as IOC president.

The International Olympic Committee convenes in Buenos Aires to choose a host city for the 2020 Games, elect Rogge's successor and add a sport to the 2020 lineup.

First up, Rogge chairs his policy-making executive board for the last time, a two-day meeting to review a range of Olympic issues.

The full IOC then convenes starting Friday for its 125th session, a landmark meeting that will set the Olympic movement's direction for the next decade.
