LAUSANNE, February  23, 2012-IOC President Jacques Rogge and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will make a joint visit to the Olympic Youth Development Centre and other community sports projects this upcoming weekend in Lusaka, Zambia.

The visit will include a tour of the Centre and meeting athletes and officials on site. Also scheduled are a presentation of awards to deserving individuals and partners, and a donation of sports equipment to deprived communities.

The Olympic Youth Development Centre, which was inaugurated two years ago, has already helped enhance sports development in Zambia by providing sports competitions, training facilities and community development services covering civic education and health services.

This project is part of the “International Inspiration” programme, the official legacy programme of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
