2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games

Leysin 2020
Dancers at Leysin
Balances at Leysin

The 3rd version, for youths between 14 and 18, was held in Lausanne, Switzerland, from 9 to 22 January; some events took place in Leysin where MMM began in 1926. The Tourist Office and the Town Council, who knew us due to our workshops in 2017 and 2019, suggested us making a presentation within the context of the entertainments linked to the YOG. Thus I talked about Margaret, her technique and her contribution to sport and athletics, beginning of last century; this was accompanied by some illustrations of Margaret and Jim on the screen. We showed the Greek positions, dances, variations and different exercises, some of which the public, children and adults, was enthusiastic to join in at the end. Lots of thanks to teachers (Kim, Stéphanie, Catherine and Estelle) and students (Laura, Amelia and Liam) who took part in this successful performance ! Betty Epalinges, January 2020
