About the Games

Singapore 2010 was the first-ever Youth Olympic Games. The brainchild of then-IOC President Jacques Rogge, the YOG aims to inspire and engage a young generation that is increasingly spending less time on sports and more time on the internet and watching television. The Summer Youth Olympic Games Singapore 2010 showcased Singapore to the world while celebrating diversity, friendship, hope and the Olympic ideals.

Singapore 2010’s tagline, “blazing the trail,” represented the new opportunities the Youth Olympic Games presented to young athletes as well as the model the inaugural host provided to future editions of the YOG. Normally, given the magnitude of the Olympic Games, host cities take about seven years to prepare the necessary infrastructure, facilities and workforce. For the first-ever Youth Olympic Games (YOG), the International Olympic Committee (IOC) released the bid procedure, questionnaire and event manual in August 2007, just three years before the Games. While the short time-frame posed challenges, the organising committee delivered Singapore 2010 on time, "blazing the trail".
