Working as a team with athletes of different genders at the YOG during the mixed team events, and with athletes from different cultures and backgrounds, you will experience the power of sport to transcend barriers and build bridges. Take that lesson home with you and become a role model in your community.

To become a real champion, it is important to adhere to the Olympic values – respect, excellence and friendship – on and off the field of play…

You can become a real champion not only by achieving good results without breaking the rules, but also by giving back what sport has given you. You have the chance to make the world a better place through sport. Other Olympians have decided to get involved, and you too can inspire young people and make an impACT!
