YOG on the Road to the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival

23/04/2013

Earlier this year, the Youth Olympic Games team headed out to Brasov, in Romania, to meet the newest talent in winter sports at the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival (EYOWF).

An annual event, the 2013 EYOWF welcomed over 900 athletes from 45 countries competing in 37 disciplines. Between events, we caught up with some of these young competitors to see what it is that drives them and why they love taking part in international multi-sport events.

So check out our latest video and watch closely, as some of these faces may be the stars of the next Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer in 2016!
