The Chilean Olympic Committee (COCH) is a non-profit private organization composed of all Chilean sports federations who join it and accept its statute and regulations. It was created in 1934[1] and recognised the same year by the International Olympic Committee. The Committee is the organization in charge of coordinating Olympic activities in Chile. Before the COCH was formed, this duty was carried out by the “Liga Deportiva de Chile” (Chilean Sports League).
