IOC Evaluation Commission report released for YOG 2020 candidate cities

June 30th, 2015

 Read the report of the Evaluation Commission for the Winter Youth Olympic Games 2020

Brasov’s vision is to increase Romania’s visibility around the world, improve its capacity to organise large-scale events and develop its winter sports. Brasov also seeks to educate young people in the Olympic spirit and increase awareness of the need for sustainable development.

Lausanne’s vision is to create a laboratory for innovation and ideas produced by and for young people, while contributing to the development of the Olympic Movement for future generations.

The IOC Evaluation Commission, chaired by IOC Member Yang Yang, first met in October 2014 to analyse the candidature files and guarantees. This was followed by a second meeting in March 2015 for further analysis and to assess answers to the Commission’s questions. During this meeting, the Commission held a video conference with each city, giving them the opportunity to present their Youth Olympic projects and allowing for further questions to be asked.

The host city for the 3rd Winter YOG in 2020 shall be elected at the 128th IOC session in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 31 July 2015, following a final presentation by Brasov and Lausanne to the full IOC membership.
