There’s more to YOG than you think...
The Youth Olympic Games is not all about awesome athletes participating at the highest level, it is also about awesome athletes coming together to learn about themselves, each other’s cultures and broaden their horizons.
Whether building a raft, taking a group drumming class or having a chat with a former Olympian about life after sport, the Culture and Education programme, which runs in parallel with the elite sports programme, features fun, interactive and dynamic activities to get the participants working together, breaking down boundaries and building friendships.
This video shows how the 3,600 athletes who participated in the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore 2010 embraced the YOG spirit by getting involved and having fun both on and off the field of play. Keep your eye out for some memorable YOG-tastic moments.
