1 day to 1st Youth Olympic Flame!


Recommended Posts

Just 1 more day that the 1st Youth Olympic Flame will start its global journey! --> Ancient Olympia, Greece, follows by Berlin, Dakar, Mexico City, Auckland and Seoul. Singapore is ready for the Games!

On March 2009, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided that torch relays for all future Olympic Games will be held within the host city.

However, an exception was made for the first Youth Olympic Games. In order to connect the youth of the world to the Olympic movement, SYOGOC was granted the honour of bringing the first Youth Olympic Flame to five continents.

Pardon my ignorance but why are they using that ugly orange suit for the torchbearers :blink: i remember the torchbearers uniform was different.

Apparently they have 2 different uniforms : one for the international relay and one the singapour's part !
