News - Youth Olympic Games

A special Olympic Rings sculpture has been unveiled at the downtown obelisk in Buenos Aires to mark one-year-to-go celebrations until the third Summer Youth Olympic Games.

Buenos Aires Mayor Horacio Rodriguez Larreta was among those present for a special ceremony also attended by Organising Committee head Gerardo Werthein and International Olympic Committee (IOC) Coordination Commission chair Li Lingwei.

Almost 4,000 teenage athletes spanning 32 different sports and 241 events are due to participate at the Games, which will begin with an Opening Ceremony in exactly a year's time.

"It is a dream that is coming true," said Rodríguez Larreta.

"The fact that our country can organise a Youth Olympic Games is a huge responsibility.

"It is also a unique opportunity to demonstrate what we are capable of the Argentines.

"We are very proud that Argentina receives almost 4,000 athletes, their family and their companions.

"We will be the centre of attention of the world during those two weeks."

Rio 2016 gold medal winners Santiago Lange and Pedro Ibarra were among others present.

Lange triumphed in the Nacra 17 sailing competition at last year's event while Ibarra formed part of the gold medal winning men's hockey team.

"One year of hard training for sure will make a lot of difference, so I wish all the sailors all the very best to get there.” said Lange, a 56-year-old veteran of six Olympic Games.

“I am a little bit jealous - in the good old days the Youth Olympic Games didn’t exist and I think it’s a great, great idea and an incredible event and I wish [the athletes] all the best and welcome to Buenos Aires.”

Organisers announced during last month's IOC Session in Lima that the Opening Ceremony will be held outdoors in the heart of the capital city.

It was also claimed that they are almost seven months in advance with construction progress and that the Athletes' Village, their biggest project, was completed in August.

“This project for Argentina is something we have been waiting for over 50 years, for the Games to be in our country”, added Werthein, also a member of the IOC, during the ceremony.

“This will be very organised, sustainable, without white elephant Olympic Games.

"Each venue that has been built has an owner and a purpose.

"That will be the legacy."

Buenos Aires will mark the third edition of the Summer Youth Olympic Games after Singapore in 2010 and Nanjing in 2014.

An IOC Session will also take place in the city during the event, primarily to confirm the bidding progress for the 2026 winter race.

IOC President Thomas Bach is among others to have delivered messages to coincide with the anniversary.

“Only one year to go until the Youth Olympic Games Buenos Aires 2018," he said today.

"We can’t wait to join you next year in this passionate sport city for a celebration of sport, youth and culture.”

2019 Pan Amer­i­can Games

The Pan Amer­i­can Games closed on Sun­day but T&T is still cel­e­brat­ing its his­toric per­for­mance, claim­ing 13 medals, the most ever.

I happen to be initially browsing but having caught my attention, I then perused thoroughly, the 2018 Oxford Business Group country report on Trinidad and Tobago.  There were a number of perespectives, snap shots and overviews written. If one wanted to get a well researched and documented overview of the economic and business landscape within the twin Island Republic.

31 July is CANOC day. A message was sent out. That it barely registered or caught the attention of sport stakeholders in the Caribbean is an opportunity not a slight. CANOC must embrace the opportunity to heighten awareness and engage in enhanced outreach to provide information about the organisation.

It is cold in Lima, Peru, host city of the 2019 Pan Am Games. In fact, it is winter here in the South American nation.

With the one-year countdown to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games officially underway, the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee, (TTOC) has announced that TTO athletes will benefit from a pre-games training camp at the Japan Athlete Training Center Osumi, in Osaki Town, Kagoshima Prefecture, as part of Japan’s Host Town Initiative.
