100 years of Olympic presence in Lausanne
On 10 April 2015, the IOC celebrates 100 years of Olympic presence in Lausanne.
Over the past century, the Villa Mon-Repos has played a crucial role in Olympic Movement history. Its destiny was first linked very closely to that of Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who set up the IOC headquarters there in 1922.
