Youth Olympic Village (YOV)

The inaugural Youth Olympic Games (YOG) is coming to Singapore from 14 to 26 August 2010 and the Youth Olympic Village (YOV) has been set up at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), expecting to house over 5000 atheletes and officials.

There are still more acronyms in this YOG. JYOF stands for Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame, IOC is the International Olympic Committee, SYOGOC is the Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee and CEP is the Culture and Education Programme for atheletes.

Guess the YOG acronyms will become more familiar over time...

All competing atheletes! Do your best and bring forth the Olympic values of Excellence, Friendship and Respect!
