Three days at the end of the summer that will mix the emotion of crowning world champions with the best performances of the year.

“We are absolutely delighted to go to the Olympic Capital with our best athletes and our best event”, said ITU President and IOC member, Marisol Casado. “Lausanne is a city with historic links with our sport and where some of our athletes have shined, and is also where our headquarters are located. But it is also a city where lots of our colleagues in others sports are based, so it will be an amazing opportunity to allow everyone to experience the emotion, thrill and excitement of our Grand Final in person”, she expressed.

The Lausanne Grand Final will start on Thursday, August 29, at the Place Bellerive, with the traditional Parade of nations that will welcome more than 4000 athletes to the Olympic Capital.
