In the recent years, we all see how sport has grown, and become more important, and as we see there are many sports tournament and events around the world, also the government support and the great effort from the media to try to cover as many sporting events, not only in the senior level, the junior and the youth level become more important nowadays because the youth of today; champions of tomorrow.
But we still can't get the meaning of YOG?!
YOG that is the short name for the Youth Olympic Games; yes Youth Olympic Games, maybe you know it, but am sure there are many of us didn’t heard the name before. YOG are the same like the usual Olympic games with some different and the sports will not be the only thing that Olympic are all about, there is two new things Culture and Education, so let's know more about the most important sport event in this year.
It's the first edition, it was an idea from International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge which was excite by the IOC session in 2005 in Guatemala, there were several bidders for the first edition, and Singapore was awarded the games at February 2008
The Youth Olympic Games are a sporting event for young people, The games would take place this month in Singapore, the opening ceremony is on the 14th and the closing ceremony is on the 26th of August. 3,600 Young athletes will participate in high-level competitions and the sports programme of this first edition of the summer YOG will encompass all 26 sports on the programme of the 2012 Olympic Games, with a smaller number of disciplines and events. And the athlete's age ranges will be from 14 to 18 years, but each sport has to pick two years maximum, ex: 3 age groups in principle: 15/16, 16/17, 17/18, and if the athlete not at the specified age he is not allowed to compete.
YOG will not be the same as the usual Olympic, they got a cultural and educational program which is a first, so sports isn’t the main thing at the games, it's three things, Sports, Culture and Education, so the athletes would also follow an education program, while they're competing and training.
In the sport; Basketball is completely different, it'll be three-on-three, which they had just recently new edition at the Asian youth games, very exciting competition and very popular, in Singapore it'll be held at an outside area which they called Youth Scape, which a youths park, so it's very well known to everybody there, they are also having BMX bike, they are building new courts for that, I think all the other sports are the standard Olympic games format

Only three days to go until the inaugural Youth Olympic Games!

Introducing Beatriche Gencheva from Bulgaria:
UIPM Athletes Committee Chairman and Youth Olympic Games Role Model Georgina Harland attended a media gathering put on by the Singapore Tourism Board. The aim was to garner interest, raise global awareness in the Inaugural Youth Olympic Games, create buzz for Singapore as the host nation, and at the same time, excite the media and public about travelling to Singapore. Here Georgie presented a group of volunteers from London who have raised over £41,000 in order to travel to Singapore to become YOG volunteers with an aim of undertaking the same initiative for the 2012 Olympics. Georgie also gave a short speech on what life is like as an Olympian and how the Youth Olympic Games will prepare Team GB for 2012.

As the athletes prepare for their arrival in Singapore, there is added excitement today with the unveiling of the first medals for the Youth Olympic Games.
Competition takes place between 15 and 26 August, where the best performing athletes will be awarded this specially designed medal.
The obverse design was created by Setsuko Fukuzawa from Japan, winner of the Medal Design Competition held by the International Olympic Committee in the build-up to Singapore 2010. Her medal features the flames and waves, symbolising the Olympic spirit and the cheering of athletes. The Olympian’s body shaped in a ‘Y’ is reminiscent of Goddess Nike and stands for Youth, as referred to in the “Yes Youth Can” slogan, the name that Setsuko gave to her creation. The reverse side features the mythical lion synonymous with Singapore, and emblem for the Games, which represents the spirit of youth.
To all the young athletes, the medals are there for the taking… Gold, silver and bronze!
