Lausanne: It's officially a six-man race to succeed Jacques Rogge as International Olympic Committee president.

The deadline closed Friday without any new candidates entering the campaign.

The six who had already declared their candidacies are: IOC vice presidents Thomas Bach of Germany and Ser Miang Ng of Singapore; executive board members Sergei Bubka of Ukraine and C. K. Wu of Taiwan; and former board members Richard Carrion of Puerto Rico and Denis Oswald of Switzerland.

The election is scheduled for Sept. 10 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Rogge is stepping down after completing the maximum 12-year mandate.

The six candidates will present their manifestos to the 100-plus IOC members at closed-door meetings in Lausanne on July 3-4.
