Singapore Youth Olympic Festival to be held in August

Singapore Youth Olympic Festival to be held in August

SINGAPORE : The Singapore Youth Olympic Festival will be held in August to celebrate the first anniversary of the 2010 Youth Olympic Games.


Ng Ser Miang

S$800,000 has been set aside for the Festival - to be held from August 13 till 19 - with funding from the Singapore Olympic Foundation.

The aim is to continue the momentum of the Youth Olympics.

The Singapore Youth Olympic Festival will bring together some 2,000 athletes who will compete in five sports - table tennis, badminton, football, basketball and taekwondo.

Singapore Expo will be the venue for the Festival that would pit national athletes against amateurs.

The Festival is to be held in conjunction with the Community Sports Competition.

There are plans to expand and include more sports in future and even invite foreign athletes, just like during the Youth Olympics.

Organisers want it to be more than just about sports.

Ng Ser Miang, who is heading the International Olympic Committee's relief efforts for Japan - which was hit by an earthquake and tsunami in March - added that five Japanese athletes from Fukushima will be invited as guest athletes.

Mr Ng, who is chairman of the Singapore Olympic Foundation, said: "Culture and Education is an important part of the Youth Festival as well. There will be activities where Singaporeans can take part in other than just the sports competition."
