Sarah Atcho runs through the Lausanne 2020 Olympic Village


[Music] Hi everyone!
I’m Sarah Atcho, Olympic athlete from Lausanne. I’m in front of the Vortex,
the new Olympic Village for the Youth Olympic Games 2020.
It will welcome nearly 2’000 athletes. I can’t wait to see it! [Music] Did you know?
This beautiful village will become a student residence. What a legacy!
Let’s go discover it as only a sprinter can! [Music] We are in the heart of the Olympic Village, where the athletes will celebrate the Olympic Spirit of these Winter Games.
In these games, there will be as many female as male athletes. [Music] In January, the Lausanne 2020 athletes will not only be here for the sporting events. They will also have access to many educational activities on the ground floor of the Village. [Music] The apartments of this ring called “Vortex” are linked together by a single ramp. We could skate it from the roof to the ground.
But I will show it to you while sprinting! Let’s go! [Music] Let me show you a hint of an athlete’s apartment, which will have the Olympic colours to allow them to live an incredible experience. The building is heated with water from Lake Geneva, and the power comes from the 1’200 solar panels on the roof. [Music] Hey Yodli!
We’re finally on the roof of the Olympic Village. We can’t wait to see you in Lausanne in January! [Music]
