Athletes Inspire Local Students

Throughout the year, athletes – notably the Lausanne 2020 ambassadors, members of the Council of Athletes and Team Genève - are taking part in myriad activities involving young people in connection with Lausanne 2020. In addition to the stops made by the Olympic Flame, which gather several hundred children each time, athletes also visit classrooms to talk to pupils about daily life for elite athletes and to answer numerous questions about Lausanne 2020. Athletes also prepare pupils to make the most – from near or far – of the second biggest winter multisport event in the world, second only to the traditional Olympic Games.

In November, Sarah Höfflin, Christelle Boivin, Anne-Sophie Thilo, Jérémy Maillefer, Tadesse Abraham, Renaud Blanc, Julien Cujean and Déborah Chiarello inspired children in Geneva and in Canton Vaud. Find out about what they did in the photo gallery:
