At the invitation of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the leading representatives of the Olympic Movement met today for the 12th Olympic Summit, which was held at Olympic House in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Chaired by the IOC President, the Olympic Summit involves the leading representatives of the Olympic Movement. It forms part of the ongoing dialogue and consultation on subjects of significance for the future of the Olympic Movement.

Point 26) The Summit was informed that Milano Cortina 2026 Organising Committee is about to finalise its venue master plan. It has evolved in the direction of the recommendations given by the IOC with regard to the sliding centre. The IOC expects the final decision to involve organising the sliding events in an already existing fully functioning sliding centre outside Italy in the near future.

27) The IOC reaffirmed that it could only approve a venue that is located in a country that guarantees respect for the Host City Contract, in particular with regard to the free access to the Olympic Games for all participants accredited by the IOC.

28) While all the Winter IFs noted and welcomed the increased engagement by the Organising Committee, the ice sports IF representatives informed the Summit that they will continue to closely monitor the developments with regard to their competition venues.
