“What I like is that the visit is varied. It alternates moments of thinking and emotion with physical activities. The children are often surprised to see everything there is behind the Olympic Games, and ask many questions. I choose my route according to their remarks. So each visit is a surprise, for me and for the children.” Emilie Person
