Welcome to my Singapore Youth Olympic Games site.

Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games

Following the first Youth Olympic Games 2010 in Singapore, the next edition of the Youth Olympic Games will be held in Nanjing, China in the year 2014.

The vision of the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) is to inspire young people around the world to participate in sport and adopt and live by the Olympic values. It was during its Session in Guatemala City in July 2007 that the IOC decided to create a new sporting event to educate, engage and influence young athletes inspiring them to play an active role in their communities.

The Youth Olympic Games are a sporting event for young people, balancing sport, culture and education. These Games work as a catalyst in these fields throughout the Olympic Movement.

Young athletes will participate in high-level competitions and alongside the sports element of the event, will participate in a Culture and Education Programme (CEP) focused on five themes: Olympism and Olympic values, skills development, well-being and healthy lifestyle, social responsibility and expression through digital media.

Let's hope the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games bring the young together again for another joyous celebration.
