March 2020 Newsletter

Matthew Hotos, IOC President Thomas BachGreetings to our 486 Olympin members in 31 nations around the world. Included are 20 new members! This newsletter is a few weeks late, as we were waiting to include information from 3 members who were visiting Tokyo in March searching for Olympic lodging. But they had to cancel and delay their trips due to the current COVID-19 virus pandemic. For this issue, several members have stepped forward and submitted newsworthy articles on the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum's upcoming opening; the 2020 Youth Olympic Winter Games in Lausanne; a look at the logos for the 2022 Bejing and 2024 Paris Olympics; and a report on the sale of a key piece of de Coubertin memorabilia! If anyone is interested in contributing articles for future newsletters, please contact Sid Marantz.

To access the newsletter, simply click on the Members button in the upper right corner of this screen (or click here), then enter your Email and Password. There is a "Forgot your password?" link to the left of the log-in area just in case.
