lll Winter Youth Olympic Games

Enjoy To The 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games (French: Les IIIe Jeux olympiques de la jeunesse d’hiver; German: Olympische Jugend-Winterspiele 2020; Italian: III Giochi olimpici giovanili invernali; Romansh: Gieus olimpics da giuvenils d’enviern 2020), officially known as the III Winter Youth Olympic Games, and commonly known as Lausanne 2020 will be the third edition of the Winter Youth Olympics; a major international multi-sport event and cultural festival for teenagers to be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, the home of the International Olympic Committee between 9 and 22 January 2020.

Lausanne, also known as the “Olympic Capital”, has been the home of the modern Olympic Movement for more than a hundred years. Today, more than 50 international sporting organizations call this region their home. Because of that, sport and the positive values that it carries has become a part of Switzerland’s DNA.

Therefore, delivering the Youth Olympic Games’ vision to inspire the youth of the world to adopt and live according to the Olympic values of Respect, Friendship and Excellence right from the heart of the Olympic Capital was an idea that made a lot of sense for the people of the city, the region and of Switzerland as a whole.

In 2020, Lausanne and Switzerland want to capture this special Olympic heritage, and with their strong international sports expertise and capacity to innovate, redefine it and update it with the youth of the world to provide the next generation with a brand new and refreshed ownership of the Olympic values.

The event will take place in and around Lausanne, on the shores of Lake Geneva, and in the nearby Vaud Alps. The Youth Olympic Village will be located in the heart of the city’s 35,000 student university campus. Imagine the Youth Olympic Games here!
