Innovations at the heart of the discussions

Patrick Baumann, President of Lausanne 2020, and Ian Logan, CEO, presented the project Lausanne 2020 in front of all the National Olympic Committees (NOCs) in Prague during their general assembly.

During their talk on the 3rd of November, the L2020 delegation among others brought forward the innovations undertaken by Lausanne 2020 together with the IOC, and that answer directly to the requests expressed by the NOCs. Among these, we can cite the introduction of a new system that organises the athletes into two ‘waves’, with each ‘wave’ having a shorter stay on-site.

The presence of the L2020 delegation in Prague also enabled a first formal contact between the Organising Committee of L2020 and the NOCs that are indispensable for the success of the next Winter Youth Olympics.
