In Singapore, inaugural Youth Olympic Games provide competition and inspiration

As the first-ever Youth Olympic Games comes to a close, a young female athlete quietly traces the outline of her hand on a piece of paper and writes, “I have a right to be educated and to play any sports I like.”

Organized under the direction of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Youth Olympic Games are an international high-level sporting event for adolescents held every two years, alternating between the summer and winter seasons.

In addition to providing opportunities for young athletes to compete in 26 olympic sports, the games also aim to provide young people with the knowledge and skills to become role models for their peers and to play an active role in their communities.
