World Youth Olympics

Yes, Singapore has won the bid to host the inaugural World Youth Olympics in 2010.

Signapore pipped Moscow to the honour of hosting the World Youth Olympics. Such wonderful news, as it shows that the IOC has the confidence in our ability to do the job well.

It is such an honour for a small little nation to be given this task!

Yippee!!! Hooray!

Happy for Singapore - a place I hold dear in my heart!

Hi Yan
No, I did not delete your comment. Did not see it.

Not sure how many Singaporeans will be taking part, but in the Sunday times they did feature a few that would be. I think there were 2 swimmers, amongst a few others.

Hi Judy
2010 will be the 1st time they are holding it. Its for those aged 14 to 18 years, an Olympics for the younger folks.

Hi Jenny & sweetiepie
I wish you both can come in 2010!!

Hi tigerfish
I guess thats the "price" you have to pay for the honpur of hosting it. But it should be a boost for our retail, hotel and f&b sector.

Hi bp
So, I was the one with the breaking news and not cnn??

Tks Hazel

Yes, so glad for Singapore, isnt it? At last we will be where the action is. But like tigerfish said - more crowds and things will get more expensive too!
