Who will host the 2018 Youth Olympic Games? Just one month to go!

04/06/2013

The countdown to the announcement of the host city of the 3rd Summer Youth Olympic Games is officially on!

Yes, in just 30 days we will know whether we will be heading to Buenos Aires (Argentina), Glasgow (Great Britain) or Medellin (Colombia) to watch a new generation of YOG athletes compete in 2018.

In preparation for the decision, today the International Olympic Committee (IOC) released the report of the IOC Evaluation Commission.

Then, on 4 July, the IOC members will attend a special meeting to be held in Lausanne, Switzerland, where they will vote for the host city, after watching a final presentation by each of the cities.

And you will be able to catch all the action as it unfolds live on Olympic.org.

So stay tuned for all the latest news and keep on spreading the YOG spirit!
