  20. Interesting fact: 1.) Singapore could be the first country in the world that "first try and hit the jackpot". This is their first international bid of any games event. 2.) The bidding process just took 7 months to complete, and seems Singapore just wins without major obstacle. 3.) By 2010, Singapore biggest stadium will be Marina Bay Floating Stadium (25,000 seats), which cannot be used fro track and field events. The track and field events will be hosted in Bishan Stadium, which the number of seats should be less than 15,000 seats. The new stadium will only completed on 2011.
  21. Hi All, Singapore wins the bid! Yahoo!!!!!!! Now still preparing to upload the photos. Hmm... How come GamesBids.com doesn't have the feature to upload the photos directly from local PC? Stay tuned!
  22. [Malaysia, Singapore Time -> 11.14am] 8 hours countdown to the announcement. Now I'm still in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Approximately 1pm will go to Singapore.
  23. Proposed Youth Olympic Village in National University of Singapore (Taken from www.youth.sg) The final results of the Singapore’s Youth Olympic Games bid will only be announced on Feb 21, but Singapore has taken one step ahead to begin constructing the University Town — otherwise known as our iconic Youth Olympic Village (YOV). Here’s the whammy: The S$500-$600 million (US$423-million) project is set to be completed in Feb 2010 – half a year before the games. This means that the massive village will be completed in just two years, while several key facilities to be up by end-2009. Talk about efficiency of the highest level! Some juice on the YOV: • It is located 13km from the city centre and within 30 minutes of travelling time to all YOG sports venues • It is built to the latest environmental standards on a compact 19 hectare former golf course, integrating residential, educational, cultural and recreational facilities in a seamless design which takes advantage of the natural lush terrain • There will be a residential zone with eight 5 to 9-storey residential colleges, each consisting of either four- or six-room apartments • It will provide 5000 beds – more than enough for the expected number of athletes and officials • It will be equipped with state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities, including village-wide wireless broadband for the youth athletes
  24. City Hall Singapore I will be here on 21 Feb 2008 to support Singapore YOG 2010 bid, rain or shine!!!
