Probst re-elected as USOC chair

U.S. Olympic Committee chairman Larry Probst has been elected to a second term.

Probst, also the chairman at Electronic Arts, took over for Peter Ueberroth in 2012 during a period of turmoil for the USOC.

During his first four years, the USOC has solved a long-simmering feud with the International Olympic Committee over their revenue-sharing agreement and the USOC management has returned to stability under the leadership of CEO Scott Blackmun.

Last year, the IOC appointed Probst to its international relations commission -- one of several steps the USOC sees as improving its reputation overseas.
