Lausanne 2020 - Youth Olympic Games

A total of 1,872 young athletes between the ages of 15 and 18 from 79 countries took part in 81 events in 8 sports and 16 disciplines at 8 competition venues in the cantons of Vaud (Lausanne, La Vallée de Joux, Leysin, Les Diablerets, Villars), Valais (Champéry), Grisons (St. Moritz) and in neighbouring France (Les Rousses, Stade des Tuffes). For the first time in a Winter Olympics competition, there was an equal number of men and women.

I was accredited as photographer and got the chance to shoot photos for Photo Vision Zumstein AG. My goal was to cover as many different sports categories, to capture the Olympic spirit and to follow the Swiss and Danish athletes. It was a big dream of mine to attend the Olympic Games and it was a pleasure to work with the other athletes and media colleagues.
