You came, you saw, you copied... and the YOG team is now delighted to announce that the winner of the Twitter “I Copy U” competition is Young-hwa Kim, from the Republic of Korea. Her prize? A trip to the first Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck, Austria!!!
We had loads of awesome entries, including a cat, several babies and a cuddly toy, but it was Young-hwa who caught our attention with her own unique portrayal of the iconic snapshot of Olympic figure skating champion and YOG Ambassador Yuna Kim being overcome with emotion as she was awarded her gold medal at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games.
Overall, the contest attracted a YOG-tastic 110,000 visitors from around the world, with the most guests coming from the Republic of Korea thanks in no small part to Yuna’s massive appeal in her home country! Many photos were shared and our Twitter fanbase rocketed!! Watch this space for news on more I Copy U fun coming soon!
