The Olympic Council of Asia has given Singapore the right to host it in July 2009. This forerunner to the Youth Olympic Games Games will provide Singapore an excellent opportunity to put into practice the plans, processes and people systems for the greatest show in Asia before the Youth Olympic Games.
