BERLIN, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- Alfons Hoermann was elected as the new president of the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) during the general assembly in Wiesbaden, Germany on Saturday.

The 53-year-old entrepreneur and president of the German Ski Association (DSV) earned 434 of 459 votes to become the successor of former DOSB president Thomas Bach. Thus, 94.6 per cent of the votes elected Hoermann for one year into the high office of German sport organisations.

"I am aware of how enormous the tasks are. I know how big Thomas Bach's footsteps are, which I cannot fill. But, I will attempt to accomplish the tasks with the members," Hoermann said in an official press release.
