Singapore – Blazing the Trail - Youth Games 2010
The 2010 Summer Youth Olympics, officially known as the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (YOG), were an international multi-sport event for youths that took place in the city-state of Singapore from 14 to 26 August 2010, in the XXIX Olympiad. They were the inaugural Summer Youth Olympics, a major sports and cultural festival celebrated in the tradition of the Olympic Games. A total of 3,531 athletes between 14 and 18 years of age from 204 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) competed in 201 events in 26 sports. The decision for Singapore to host the Games was announced on 21 February 2008 after mail voting by 105 International Olympic Committee (IOC) members. My friend Wang Lee sent me this FDC.
