Augustin Maillefer, international rower and Ambassador of Lausanne 2020, visited Vivalys, a Lausanne school, to share his experience with its students. The university student and olympian athlete explained his daily routine, between studies and sport, spoke of the inherent requirements of the life of an elite athlete, especially with regard to sleep and nutrition and talked about his dreams and future projects.

The Lausanne athlete, who trains 2-3 times per day, participated to the Youth Olympic Games Singapore 2010, the Olympic Games London 2012 and Rio 2016 and he is now focusing on Tokyo 2020. His visit to Vivalys was part of the school programme “target Lausanne 2020” which provides a myriad of physical and educational activities around the sport, in view of the Youth Olympic Games 2020.
