The IOC's annual participatory event for children.
Aiming to encourage young people to try new sports, the annual Olympic Week has been running for some 30 years now. Organised by the International Olympic Committee at the Olympic Museum and various other locations in Ouchy and Vidy, it’s a chance for around 5,000 kids aged eight to 15 to try their hand at a new sport, for free. This year’s edition will comprise 40 sports including boxing, bobsleigh, rowing, gymnastics and archery, plus some that haven’t yet found their way into the Olympics, such as rollerblading, slackline, climbing and American football. In short, every kid is likely to find something for them. Pre-registration is required, before 3 October.
