The summer Youth Olympics which is going to take place on 14th of this month will be an historical event as it is the first Summer Youth Olympics. According to the International Olympic committee, the vision of this Youth Olympic Game is to inspire the youngsters all around the world in terms of sports spirit and make them aware of the values of Olympics. It also aims in building a balance between sports events, cultural activities and education. Thus, during the Summer Olympics, the youngsters will be given opportunity to participate in cultural and educational activities apart from the interesting sporting events. The cultural and entertainment activities will be based on five themes. These themes are Olympic values and Olympism, development of personal skills, healthy lifestyle and well being, awareness on Social responsibility and the expression through digital media.
Around 3600 athletes from 205 countries will unite together with 1450 officials and 500,00 spectators in the Marine Bay of Singapore on 14th August for the 13 days long 2010 Singapore Summer Youth Olympics. The young athletes are between the age group of 14 to 18 years.
