The alchemy of Pascal Gertsch’s dream (medical doctor who is a fan not only of cross-country skiing, but also of Mongolia) and the welcoming spirit of Vallée de Joux residents (Combiers) has given birth to an extraordinary human venture. Their goal is to help the best Mongolian cross-country skiers to participate in the Winter Youth Olympic Games, Lausanne 2020. The adventure started on January 13th, 2018, when 15 of them arrived at a two-week training camp in the Vallée de Joux.
In January 2020, St. Moritz will host the bobsleigh, skeleton, luge and speed skating competitions of the upcoming Winter Youth Olympic Games.
From January 10 to 22 2020, Lausanne will be welcoming the third edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games. Twenty-six years after obtaining the title of Olympic Capital, Lausanne will become an Olympic city by hosting the second largest multisports winter event after the Olympic Winter Games. This event will offer a unique and unforgettable Olympic experience to young athletes. The combination of culture, performance and education will give rise to a genuine celebration of sports! More
