An ambassador committed to the promotion of sport

Villars skier Charlotte Chable has recently been appointed Ambassador of Lausanne 2020. A regular of the European Cup circuits, with multiple podiums and a top 15 finish at the World Championships, she leads a life punctuated by sport.

The young athlete, specialized in slalom, has chosen to share her passion for skiing and her daily life as an elite sportswoman with young people. Like athlete Augustin Maillefer a month ago, she recently participated in a special gym lesson: "each year, students are required as part of the curriculum to undertake a number of tests designed to evaluate their physical performance. This year, in view of the upcoming Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympics, we have asked a number of elite level athletes from the Canton of Vaud to undertake the tests. We then plan to produce a poster showing their results next to their photo and a list of their sporting achievements. This poster will then be displayed in all the canton's educational establishments, with the objective of motivating students and stimulating discussion about the factors involved in achieving this level of performance" explains Toni Pacifico, Educational Advisor at the Vaud Department of Physical Education (SEPS).

Raising awareness of the importance of physical activity, what a great way to get involved with Lausanne 2020.
