Summer Youth Olympic Games
In 2010, the Olympic Games were complemented by Youth Games, where athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 will compete and with a maximum of 3,500 Athletes and 1,500 officials. These Games will be shorter than the senior Games; the summer version will last twelve days.

The Youth Olympic Games were conceived by IOC president Jacques Rogge in 2001 and approved during the 119th Congress of the IOC. The first Summer Youth Games were held in Singapore from 14th –26th August 2010.

The sports to be contested will coincide with those scheduled for the traditional senior Games, however there will be a reduced number of disciplines and events.
