Youth Oylmpic Games - anyone watching?
Just wondered if anyone is seeing any coverage.
It's the first ever Youth Olympics and happens to be in Singapore.
14 to 18 year old competitors.
The atmosphere is fantastic. Real sense of friendly competition.
The events have been innovative and mixed too. Mixed sex swimming relays, three on three basketball, mixed country running relays with first leg 100m, 2nd leg 200m, 3rd leg 300m and final leg 400m.
I had a chance to ride and motopace some of the tt riders - such a pleasure.
No egos, just a sense of enjoyment.
Loads of competitors walking around the City state smiling.
Simply a pleasure to be around.
I went to SA for the football World Cup earlier this year and the attitude of the competitors couldn't be more contrasting.
I salute the youth!
