IOC confirms gender equality for Winter Youth Olympics Lausanne 2020

Following on from the Youth Olympic Games Working Group Recommendations, and as a result of the ongoing collaboration and strong partnerships that the IOC has with the Winter International Federations (IFs) and Lausanne 2020, the IOC EB ensured that more youth, more women and more innovative content will be introduced at the Winter YOG.

The confirmed event programme means full gender balance the first time at a Winter Olympic event, with the highest number of women’s events and women ever competing at the Winter YOG. This gender equality reflects what has been previously achieved for the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018 and the significant steps announced last month in the programme for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020.
