TAKE A TOUR OF THE OLYMPIC MUSEUM

Lausanne, Switzerland is home to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) who last year inaugurated a new HQ in their home city, seen as a glistening model of ‘Sustainability and transparency’, as affirmed by IOC president Thomas Bach in his opening speech. This coincided with the committee’s 125th anniversary. The IOC also supports its own museum – TOM – the acronym for ‘The Olympic Museum’ and like the FIFA World Football Museum is one of the best sports museums anywhere in the world.

Best Of The Polo Season Events

The Polo season is coming! Picnics with cucumber sandwiches, Pimms and cold champagne, dressing up in red corduroy trousers and tight yellow jumpers and damn the latest fashion trends. At last Polo is upon us and there are many terrific matches to attend with athletic men and women leaping on horseback to compete for our entertainment. The sun will shine and we will all get pink faces and drink and eat too much. Glorious! I may even take a few more lessons this year just to appreciate how easy the Polo pros make it look, now where’s my mallet?
