Asian Youth Games 2009 update

AYG not just a test for YOG@straits times

The AYG will be held from June 29 to July 7 next year, with Downtown East set to be the Games Village to both athletes and officials.

It will see 1,000 athletes aged between 14 and 17 from 45 countries competing in over 80 events in nine sports - aquatics (diving and swimming), athletics, bowling, beach volleyball, 3-on-3 basketball, football, sailing, shooting and table tennis.

The learning process will include observing how the Games Village is run and gaining hands-on experience during the event. Other key areas that will come under scrutiny include logistics, transport, security, medical services and anti-doping measures.
