Youth Olympic Games… the story continues!

12/05/2014

The first Winter Youth Olympic Games, Innsbruck 2012, was a huge chapter in the lives of many of its participants, whether athletes, young ambassadors, volunteers or budding reporters. Together they made the Games spectacular and each of them had an unforgettable experience.  But the story didn’t end there; we have been tracking the progress of many of the Innsbruck 2012 ‘graduates’ as they continued their careers in the world of sport, both on and off the field of play.

The next chapter for many was Sochi 2014, where we caught up with some familiar faces as they made their giant leap into the Olympic arena.  Follow their stories in this exclusive video.

We hope you are inspired! Lillehammer 2016 is just under two years away, will we see you there? 

As Youth Olympic Ambassador and Olympic champion Alpine skier Lindsey Vonn says, “Set high goals. I’ve always wanted to be an Olympian since I was nine years old and everyone thought I was insane, but you have to believe in yourself and work hard. Believe me hard work does pay off!”

Make the Youth Olympic Games your goal!
