Description

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

Florence Schelling knows exactly how tough it is to get to the top. As goaltender of the Switzerland ice hockey team, she represented her country at four Olympic Winter Games and was named player of the tournament in Sochi 2014 as they claimed bronze.

She remains the only woman to have played in the Swiss Men’s League B, and was a starter for Northeastern throughout her college career in the United States. 

So who better to mentor the next generation of ice hockey players at the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Lausanne 2020.

Schelling, 30, is one of 26 Athlete Role Models (ARMs) picked by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for the Games and she is loving every minute of it.

She said: “The Youth Olympic Games are fantastic, it’s such a great opportunity for such young athletes to first of all expose themselves on such an international stage, but also at the same time to feel that kind of pressure already at a young age in a way that it can prepare them for the future and maybe one day for the big Olympic Games.”
