IOC GRAND PRIX

Competitions for the IOC Grand Prix were launched in 1998, to support the effort of the WBF to introduce bridge in the Olympic Games.

Top class national teams were invited to represent the globe in a competition played annually at the Olympic Museum, in Lausanne , Switzerland . The Grand Prix was usually contested in two series, open and women, but a Junior series was added later.

The event was repeated in 1999 and 2000, and then again in 2002 when it took place in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. It has since been discontinued.
