L’attribution des Jeux Olympiques de la Jeunesse (JOJ) à Lausanne a déclenché dans toute la Romandie un engouement extraordinaire pour la préparation des Jeux, avec la volonté affirmée de faire des Jeux pour les jeunes, avec les jeunes et par les jeunes. En tant qu’étudiant-e-s en médecine, nous avons eu le privilège de participer aux JOJ du 4 au 24 janvier 2020; un groupe de 20 étudiant-e-s en 6e année ont eu l'occasion d’effectuer un stage de médecine du sport, validé dans le catalogue de l’année à option, dans le cadre de la troisième édition hivernale des Jeux Olympiques de la Jeunesse à Lausanne, plus connus sous l’appellation Lausanne 2020.

The Youth Olympic Games are an elite sporting event that include a series of educational activities and we built the whole concept of medical care at the village in the same spirit. We wanted not only to build a clinic with a lot of expertise, but to create a space for education for the young athletes, their medical teams and our volunteers.

Since the first report from the 1968 Olympic Games, many studies have consistently reported poor oral health in elite athletes without any differences regarding socio-economic status or continental location. Poor oral health is an important issue as it has a clear impact on quality of life, confidence, appearance and socialisation. It also has an impact on sport performance and training with impaired preparation for competition. Many causes to impaired oral health can include nutritional diet and carbohydrate supplementation, oral dehydration, depression of various aspect of the immune function due to intense exercise, negative health behaviours, lack of awareness, time and prioritisation.

The Youth Olympic Games were introduced in 2010 with the aim to bring young athletes not only an experience of competition on the world stage, but also to help them learn about the Olympic values, explore other cultures and develop the skills to become true ambassadors. The Lausanne 2020 Games provided an excellent opportunity to develop innovative concepts for health promotion and sports-related prevention. The enthusiasm across various sectors of society (political, academic and economy) empowered us to bring together multiple skills to materialize the IOC’s pledge.

The Lausanne Youth Olympic Games in January 2020 rep­resent a unique opportunity for the canton of Vaud to ­strengthen its policy of health promotion through physical activity and sport among young people. Several factors influence physical activity and physical fitness of a population. Ecological models describe correlates of physical activity in general population and youth. However, no model describes correlates of physical fitness. To close this gap, the model of physical fitness and its correlates among children and adolescents of the canton of Vaud (PACE model) was developed.

Until now, there have been no studies in Switzerland that investigate differences in the motor performance disposition of children in urban and rural as well as in traditional and physical education kindergartens. A newly developed test instrument (MOBAK-KG) was therefore used in a supra-­cantonal research project in school year 2017/18 to test the motor skills of 4- to 6-year-old children (n = 403, Ø 5,7 years, SD = .56) in the areas of “self-movement” and «object-movement».

In den letzten Jahrzehnten hat die Zahl der wissenschaftlichen Studien im Gebiet der Sportmedizin oder zu sportlichen Leistungen im weiteren Sinne erheblich zugenommen. Immer mehr Fachzeitschriften sind verfügbar, und die Zahl der eingereichten Manuskripte nimmt im Laufe der Jahre weiter zu. Interessanterweise beschäftigt sich ein wachsender Teil dieser Arbeiten mit Themen, die direkt die Akteure (Ärzte, Physiotherapeuten, Trainer, Sportlehrer, Sportwissenschaftler usw.) betreffen, welche sich täglich mit den Athleten befassen.

Kinder sind von klein auf hoch motiviert, sich zu bewegen, freuen sich an neu gewonnenen motorischen Fertigkeiten und haben Spass an der Bewegung. Dabei geht es nicht um Sport, sondern einfach nur um die aktuelle Freude an der Aktivität an sich. Sport – also Bewegung um eines Zieles wegen – sollte später kommen. Das Eintrittsalter in den Wettkampfsport ist jedoch in den letzten Jahren gesunken, Leistungssport bei Grundschülern mit Trainingsumfängen von 10–20 Stunden pro Woche in Sportarten wie Schwimmen, Turnen, rhythmische Sportgymnastik oder Ähnliches hat es früher nicht gegeben.
