Switzerland, Lausanne, 2010-02

During the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, there also was the RElympics in Lausanne in Switzerland. Here Jan Körbes and Denis Oudendijk were busy with the residents and visitors to come up with completely new sports. To do this they used old ski & snowboard supplies, gym supplies, tennis rackets etc.

This workshop was all about the Winter Olympics. Therefore they used old winter sport supplies, but also things from other sports so they could get an very diverse arsenal of stuff to build with. Because of this they came up with the most inventive ideas, such as archery with a ski pole, snow boots made from tennis rackets and a swing made from ski’s and snowboards.
