Talking about my YOG Generation
Being an elite international athlete is not only about excellence, but about being a responsible role model as well. This latest video from the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games looks at how a whole new generation of athletes is using their positions as ambassadors for their countries and their sport to set an example for their peers.
It is about being responsible citizens of the world, being aware of issues inside sport, such as doping and drug abuse, as well as outside of sport, such as HIV and AIDS prevention and environmental protection. Above all, it is about respecting ourselves and each other.
This is the spirit of Youth Olympic Games, so watch the video and spread the word!
