YOG Are More than Sport!

The Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games will gather the world's most talented young athletes aged 14 to 18. The YOG bring together high-level sports competition but also the inclusion of athletes in the Culture and Education Program, which is an integral part of the Games. In their spare time, the athletes will have an opportunity to learn through fun about healthy diet and way of life, about the dangers of doping, the Olympic values and socially responsible behaviour.
