Athletes take centre stage at Closing Ceremony!
Singapore 2010 may have come to a close tonight in the Marina Bay, but the 3600 athletes were right at the heart of the party.
With an audience of 27,000 looking on, the athletes gathered on the floating stage to dance under the firework-lit sky as the Youth Olympic Flame burned for its final moments.
It was emotional moment in the Ceremony when Singapore passed on the Olympic Flag to Nanjing the host city of the next summer edition of the Youth Olympic Games in 2014.
DJ’s, dancers and giant flying blue globes had the crowd on their feet and for a moment it seemed like the whole of Singapore was glowing. And as for the athletes…the flame may be out but the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games will stay with them forever.
Thank you and goodnight Singapore! You rocked!
