The decision about this youth Olympics was first taken by the International Olympics Committee in 2007 during its session in Guatemala City. The main aim of the Youth Olympic Game was to bring the talents out of the young generation and to make them more aware of the sports events. And of course the youth involvement in each and every step of the Olympics from the opening ceremony till the closing ceremony is the main feature of the 2010 Singapore Summer Youth Olympics. As a part of this, many events were conducted in various schools at regular intervals to generate ideas from the younger generation towards the opening as well as closing ceremony functions. And this practice had been started from February 2009 onwards. The closing ceremony along with the opening ceremony also aims at bringing up the global unity. The achievements of all the winners of 2010 Singapore Summer Youth Olympics will also be honored during the closing ceremony. It is estimated that around 3,600 young athletes from 205 different countries of the World will be participating in the first Summer Youth Olympic games.
