The different sites celebrate one year until the Games
In addition to the One year to go celebration in Lausanne, the other host sites showed their eagerness to stage the Lausanne 2020 events a year from now!
The St. Moritz ski resort projected on its frozen lake (on which the Long Track Speed Skating events will be held in 2020) the Lausanne 2020 logo… with a striking effect in enchanting surroundings!
The children of the Diablerets Ski Club wore their lovely woolly hats and followed the dance steps of our mascot YODLI, in the snow of the Vaudois Alps:
The young people of the Vallée de Joux Ski Club take us on the Cross-Country ski trails and let us discover the far corners of a magnificent site nestled in the Swiss Jura region. Follow them:
Lastly, Curling was in the spotlight in a video filmed in Champéry, a typical Swiss ski resort at the foot of the famous Dents du Midi mountains…what strategy will pay off in 2020?

On the programme: concert of one of our ambassadors the elite athlete Pat Burgener, ice-skating, LHC players signing autographs, raclette and mulled wine! Our President Virginie Faivre, our Vice-Presidents the mayor of Lausanne Grégoire Junod and the Vaudois Councilman Philippe Leuba, as well as the President of the ICO coordination Commission Danka Bartekova and our CEO Ian Logan also spoke to the many residents who came out to celebrate this symbolic point in the life of Lausanne 2020…
