Lights, camera, action… introducing the YOG Young Ambassadors

From New Zealand to Norway, Canada to Croatia, the 33 Young Ambassadors (YAs) travelling to Innsbruck next January for the first ever Winter Youth Olympic Games hail from all over the world, but they all have one thing in common… enthusiasm… lots and lots of enthusiasm!

This energetic group will act as guides for the young athletes, encouraging them to get involved in the Culture and Education Programme (CEP) and to make the most of the opportunities on offer (we just hope the athletes can keep up…).

Specifically selected by their National Olympic Committees for their skills, experiences and knowledge, the YAs’ first real challenge came when they had to step in front of the camera for their individual introduction videos… cue comedy bloopers, a singing cross-country skier from Sweden and a cheeky mountain Chamois.

For all the YA videos visit our YouTube Channel. Which YA do you think is a natural on the small screen?
