The following statement regarding the passing of Patrick Baumann is attributable to USOC chair Larry Probst:

"I woke up to the shocking and tragic news that my dear friend Patrick Baumann passed away while attending the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires. I had the privilege of getting to know Patrick as a colleague and friend during our tenure as IOC members. Patrick’s legacy of being a visionary of sport who wasn’t afraid to work incredibly hard will live on through his role on the LA 2028 evaluation commission and his role in bringing 3x3 basketball to the Olympic Program. His passing is a great loss to the global Olympic Movement, but also deeply personal as I’ve lost a true friend. On behalf of the U.S. Olympic Committee, I extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to his family and friends."
