Athletissima transforms Lausanne into an athletic city

Thursday July 5th, Lausanne will joyfully celebrate Athletissima! This track and field event is an important part of summer in Lausanne. Hosting top international athletes and close to 15,000 spectators, it is an integral part of the Diamond League.

This Lausanne competition also takes it to heart to encourage tomorrow’s athletes by helping them meet well-known athletes. Young amateur athletes from French-speaking Switzerland are invited to train with international track and field stars.

Lausanne 2020 will welcome young and old at its booth, culminating in an autograph session with Déborah Chiarello, Swiss mountaineering skier and winner of the Patrouille des Glaciers 2018, and Pat Burgener, Swiss Olympic Team snowboarder.
