The Young Reporters were nominated by their National Olympic Committees (NOCs) to the respective Continental Association of NOCs, which then nominated two female and two male Young Reporters to represent their continent in the programme. They were joined by Young Reporters representing the International Sports Press Association (AIPS), Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022, six Young Photographers and two wild card nominations. All are aged 18-24 and are either working in or studying journalism.
The Young Reporters will receive intensive class and field training in written, photographic, television, radio and social media sports blogging. They will be gaining insights and training from leading journalists and specialists, as well as conducting interviews with athletes, Olympic officials and the sporting community that supports the YOG. The programme will include a behind-the-scenes tour of the International Broadcast Centre and meetings with Olympic Channel programmers and reporters, who will also be reporting from Buenos Aires.
