YOG Friendship Games

SINGAPORE: Preparations for the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) are intensifying as they are just seven months away.

As part of the preparations, the Friendship Games will see 600 athletes from 20 National Olympic Committees compete in Singapore from January 7 to 28.

The 2010 Commonwealth Youth Wrestling Championships will be one of six events that form part of the Friendship Games.

Five other sports - Taekwondo, Boxing, Judo, Fencing and Handball - will also be staged this month at the Suntec International Convention Centre.

The venues used to host the Friendship Games will also be used for YOG in August. And so this is a good opportunity for the organisers to test out the systems and improve on any shortcomings.
