MEMOS Alumni Gathering – Lausanne 2020 

On January 14th 2020, MEMOS graduates, professors, and tutors were hosted by Olympic Solidarity at the new Olympic House. Olympic Solidarity provided a guided tour of the outstanding facilities for attendees as well as refreshments for MEMOS Alumni attending the Lausanne 2020 Games or living in the area. President Thomas Bach made a special appearance and spoke to the group “MEMOSIANS you are welcome at the IOC Headquarters and your dedication to the Olympic Movement justifies this Headquarter to be your house”.  

Thierry Zintz answered: “Mister President, more than 60 MEMOSIANS are involved in the Winter Youth Olympic Games here in the city of Lausanne. They work within NOC delegations, International Federations and in the Organizing Committee. The 873 graduates of MEMOS are strong ambassadors of the Olympic ideals and as such fully committed to promote Olympism”
