Chat with Champions: the star of the Culture and Education Programme
Amongst the many activities organised by the Singapore 2010 Organising Committee, “Chat with Champions” has had a lot of success so far with the young athletes. Yelena Isinbaeva and Sergey Bubka opened the series on the 17th which was totally booked out, this was soon followed by Frankie Frederiks, Rania Elwani and Frédéric Magné.
The principle is simple: Athlete Role Models come and share with the young athletes their past experience as Olympians on the success and difficulties they have gone through. Young athletes can also ask them questions to seek advice from them on their own Youth Olympic experience.
The next sessions will take place in the Youth Olympic Village and will be webcast live on www.youtholympicgames.org at the following dates at 19h30 Singapore time / 11h30 GMT:
- 21st August : Barbara Kendall and Wilson Kipketer
- 22nd August : Charmaine Crooks and Angela Ruggiero
- 24th August : Alexander Popov, Sergey Bubka
