The Olympic Week 2018 was a success! From 14th to 18th October, under bright sun, 6000 young athletes spent sport holidays at the Olympic Museum. The children could try over 35 sport activities at the Olympic Park, from the docks to the garden, as well as at the sport hall of the Elysée college. They were under the kind attention of 260 volunteers and sport instructors, 29 sport clubs gathered together on this occasion.
The young athletes met with some renowned athletes such as Théo Gmur, Champion of Paralympic alpine skiing, 3 time-gold medallist at the Paralympic Games 2018, Stefany Hernandez, Olympic medallist in BMX at the Olympic Games 2016 and Pat Burgener, Lausanne 2020 Ambassador, 5th in halfpipe at the Olympic Games 2018.
Next edition of the Olympic Week will take place from 13th to 17th October 2019. The organisers are more than ready for this special YOG Lausanne 2020 edition! There will be initiations to the winter sports represented at the YOG with new sports clubs, meeting with young athletes… We are looking forward to it!
