Bubka in Singapore
The Coordination Commission for the 1st Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2010 headed by IAAF Senior Vice-President Sergey Bubka concluded its second visit to Singapore.
Fifteen months before the Opening Ceremony on 14 August 2010, the Singapore Organising Committee (SYOGOC) has advanced considerably with preparations for the first edition of the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in 2010. Good progress has been made with finalising the sports programme in collaboration with the international federations. The daily competition schedule is almost complete, and SYOGOC is moving forward well in terms of planning for sports presentation.
SYOGOC has also made significant progress in terms of developing the Culture and Education Programme, including specific content development, and has shown strong commitment to this part of the project, which is essential to the success of the games. „In the last six months, the Organising Committee has worked hard towards the completion of its venue master plan and YOG event schedule by day. Much effort has also gone into detailed operational and venue planning, which will remain SYOGOC‘s focus for the coming months.
It will be important for SYOGOC to keep up the tremendous momentum it has built up so far as it moves towards operational readiness“, said Sergey Bubka, Chairman of the Coordination Commission, at the end of the visit.
