Jacques Rogge, the Belgian surgeon who has led the Olympic body since 2001, steps down at the end of his term in September 2013. Although no one speaks openly yet about replacing him, the list of potential contenders is an open secret in IOC circles. With the election nine months away, the campaign is forging ahead behind the scenes without fanfare, policy platforms, debates - or any declared candidates for that matter.
