Artūras Poviliūnas, who has headed the Lithuanian National Olympic Committee for the 22 years since the country regained independence, has announced he will not be seeking another tenure in the post.

"I understand the organization must evolve and the time has come for other, possibly younger, people to take the helm of the organization," Poviliūnas said in a press release.

"A faster pace of life, modern challenges, and not the least – pressure encountered by the organization require that the new head of the organization is a person who does no lack enthusiasm, energy, and optimism," he said.

The National Olympic Committee is scheduled to pick a new president on 12 October.

So far, two candidates have applied for the post: shooter Daina Gudzinevičiūtė and discus thrower Virgilijus Alekna, both Olympic champions.

Poviliūnas has headed Lithuania's National Olympic Committee ever since the country restored independence in 1990, he was re-elected in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008.
