Medals, torches, plush toys being made for Asian Youth Games

Medals, torches, plush toys being made for Asian Youth Games

Teo Ser Luck (R), Senior Parliamentary Secretary for MCYS, and 'Frasia' - the official Asian Youth Games mascot.

SINGAPORE: With less than two months to go, preparations have stepped up for the inaugural Asian Youth Games (AYG). Medals and torches are also being prepared for the event at the end of June.

Singapore last gave out medals for a multi-sport event at the 1993 Southeast Asia Games. James Wong was one of those who received a gold medal at the Games.

Wong has since won seven more gold medals. But he would definitely cherish that win 16 years ago, especially since it took place on home soil.

He said: "Definitely it is much, much sweeter, because when you step on the podium and everybody stands up and cheers and if the national anthem is played and you know how many people are there singing together with you and sharing the sweet victory, it's just another level of celebration."

For the AYG, there will be 455 medals, the design of which is still being worked out.

Meanwhile, the Beijing Olympic Torch organisers are helping to design the torch.

"The torch will be red and white in colour. There will be stars on the torch itself and size-wise, it's about the same size as the one used in Beijing Olympic," said Singapore Sports Council's Roy Chew, who is the torch relay manager for the AYG.

A total of 200 torches will be produced for the estimated 150 torch bearers, each of whom will run a distance of about 100 metres.

Besides the medals and the torches, the organisers are also going to produce 3,500 of the mascot plush toys.

It is no ordinary soft toy. If you shake it up vigorously, the hair will stand up and you can design it any way you want.

The organisers have also set up a clock at the Singapore Sports Council for a countdown of the event, which begins on June 29.
