IOC Approves First Olympic Youth Games (YOG) Sports Competitions

source: Singapore 2010 YOG

It was announced 10 December 2008 on the Singapore2010.sg website that the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved the sports competitions programme and the qualification system for the first Summer Youth Olympic Games (YOG).

Some features about the first Summer Youth Olympic Games (YOG) sports competitions and qualification system can be observed from the media release which has been summarized in Singapore Youth Olympic Games blog.

Features of the First Summer YOG Sports Competitions Programme and Qualification System:

3597 atheletes are expected to gather in Singapore to compete in 26 sports comprising 201 events.

The number of sports in the YOG is exactly the same as the London Olympic Games 2012 programme.

Each event will have its own age group for competitions: 15-16 years old (27 events), 16-17 (111 events) or 17-18 (63 events). The cut-off age is the age of the athlete on 31 December in the year of the YOG (i.e. 2010).

Events differ significantly in order to match age groups and interests of the young atheletes.

Mixed-gender or National Olympic Committees (NOCs) will be a particularity of the YOG. What this means is that many team events will require the boys and girls from each country's National Olympic Committee to compete as a team.

Such mixed-gender team events include archery, athletics (medley relay). Cycling (combined BMX-mountain bike-road event), equestrian, fencing, judo, modern pentathlon (relay), swimming (relay), table tennis, tennis and triathlon (relay).

Another key feature of the YOG is ensuring the universality of the YOG. In individual sports, a specific number of places for NOCs will be reserved to ensure at least four athletes per NOC can participate (Universality Places).

Qualification system for each sport and discipline was prepared in close collaboration with the respective International Federations (IF).

Four team sport tournaments (football, handball, hockey and volleyball) will consist of one national team per continent as well as a sixth team (chosen from the NOC of host country or proposed by IFs with IOC approval). Each NOC can only have one boys' and one girls' team.

NOC delegation may include a maximum of 70 athletes in individual sports, irrespective of number of athletes qualified.

There will be a Cultural and Educational Programme (CEP) for YOG participants that aims to raise awareness on important issues like a healthy lifestyle, the fight against doping and their role as sports ambassadors in their communities.

SYOGOC Management Retreat

Posted by Admin | Dec 11, 2008 12:02 AM

SYOGOC Management Retreat

Members of the Organising Committee of the Singapore Youth Olympic Games (SYOGOC) took time off for a management retreat at the SAF Changi Yacht Club in late November 2008.

During the retreat, SYOGOC management members reviewed the work that was done and to refocus priorities for the upcoming Youth Olympic Games in the year 2010.

According to the report on the Singapore 2010 website, “it was also a time for the (SYOGOC) management team to get to know one other better, and learn how the members can leverage on one other’s strength as it continues the Singapore 2010 journey.”

Some learning points were apparent from the SYOGOC management retreat report.

Essentially the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee learn that:

“it gives Singapore a unique chance to inspire our young people and those from around the world to take up sports, to learn more about one another and the important issues facing us as a global community.”

“Singapore 2010 can boost the sporting culture locally, and help promote the country as a choice venue for other international multi-sports event.”

“will change our way of thinking as a people as we learn to embrace, embody and express the values of Excellence, Friendship and Respect.”

Good luck to the SYOGOC management members on the challenging tasks ahead.
