The fourth edition of the Summer Youth Olympic Games will take place in Dakar, Senegal in 2026. The IOC members took this decision unanimously by a show of hands at the IOC Session in Buenos Aires in October 2018. In a decision approved during the 136th Session of the IOC on 17 July 2020, Senegal and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) mutually agreed to postpone the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Dakar from 2022 to 2026 because of the COVID-19.
In January 2020, the 135th IOC Session held in Lausanne voted to elect the Province of Gangwon as host of the 4th Winter Youth Olympic Games in 2024.
