The 2020 Winter Youth Olympics will bring together the world's brightest young talent on snow and ice to compete in Lausanne, Switzerland this January.

Team GB's 28-strong squad will take part in 11 of the 16 disciplines, with freestyle skier Kirsty Muir providing one of the biggest medal hopes after she picked up two podium finishes at the Freestyle Junior World Ski Championships.

The team also includes Sam Bolton, who will become the first Briton to compete in an Olympic ski jumping event since Salt Lake City 18 years ago, and Jamie Rankin, the son of Janice Rankin, part of GB's 2002 gold medal-winning curling team.

You can watch extensive live coverage and highlights from Lausanne 2020 on the BBC Sport website and app and via the BBC Red Button and BBC iPlayer, where you will also be able to catch up on the action.
