Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

Two years ago the six athletes representing Mongolia at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) knew nothing about the Nordic disciplines that they took part in at Lausanne 2020.

But they leave Switzerland having experienced competition at the highest level and as living proof the Olympic spirit is well and truly alive. 

The best result for the team was a 12th placed finish for Enkhsaikhan Enkhbat in the men’s 12.5km individual biathlon. Byambasuren Chuluunbat competed in the women’s biathlon.

The other four athletes Nomin-Erdene Barsnyam, Khongor Batsukh, Urangoo Dulamsuren and Zolbayar Otgonlkhagva competed in the cross-country skiing. The competition came to an end on Tuesday, January 21, with Otgonlkhagva as the best placed finishing 38th in the men’s 10km classic.

It is proof that the considerable amount of time, energy and money poured into a hugely ambitious project has come to fruition.
