Maybe Nicole Hoevertsz? She seems to have a good history with the IOC - https://olympics.com/ioc/mrs-nicole-hoevertsz

Yes I agree, Nicole Hoevertsz certainly does seem like a excellent candidate and has risen up within the IOC to be Vice-President, replacing Anita de Frantz last year.

Kirsty Coventry.

Would also nicely cover the "Africa card" instead of bankrupting South Africa by letting it host...

That said, I still don't exclude that Fencing 1976 will try to find support for a rule change, allowing him to stay in power longer than originally foreseen. Just like his buddies Xi and Vlad.

Or her, yes. Both African ladies are apparently very much in the current leader's favour, though maybe Coventry is even more eager to get to the throne. She's been made a permanent member last year at a relatively young age...

What about Grabar-Kitarović? Do you think she stands a reasonable chance? She might be relatively new to the circus, yet she seems to be on very good terms with Mr. Olympic Champion Fencing 1976. After all, the IOC still is somewhat of a euro-centric club.

^Yeah, she's very buddy, buddy with Bach, too. Who is also very buddy, buddy with a certain other dictator. And who also happens to chair now, appointed by you-know-who himself, that wonderful FHC that will oversee the "awarding" of the 2036 Olympics, which of course, a certain buddy, buddy's country will be in "continuous dialog" with.

Kirsty Coventry would make a good IOC President.  The problem for her chances against the time-line and that she is not an IOC Vice-President as yet, while Nicole Hoevertsz will have been a Vice President for 4 years in 2025.

Kirsty has just been appointed Chair of the Brisbane 2032 Coordination Commission so her star is definitely rising but likely not fast enough in time for the 2025 Presidential election.

Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic is also a rising star in the IOC and currently is not an IOC Vice President nor a member of the Executive Board.   Was recently elected as Chair of the Future Host Commission for the Olympic Games, replacing Ms Kristin Kloster Aasen. 

Kristin Kloster Aasen is definitely a chance having just been elevated to hold a coveted position on the IOC Executive Board following her successful stint heading up the first ‘New Norm’ Future Host Commission for the Olympic Games which led to Brisbane’s election as 2032 Host.

… and if people think Bach and Coates are abrasive, she’s hardly a go-to reset

I don't think Bach is abrasive at all, though, more like a puppet. Coates, OTOH, is the abrasive boaster & puppet master.
