Youth Olympic Games

The Youth Olympic Games are an elite sporting event for young people from all over the world. An event distinct from other youth sports events, as they also integrate a unique Culture and Education Programme (CEP), based around five main themes: Olympism, Social Responsibility, Skills Development, Expression and Well-being and Healthy Lifestyles.

The Youth Olympic Games aim to bring together over 3,500 talented young athletes aged from 15 to 18 from around the world for a 12-day period and feature 28 sports on the summer programme, including Jumping.

Just like the Olympic Games, the Youth Olympic Games are held every four years.

  • 1st summer edition was held in Singapore (SIN) from 14 to 26 August 2010
  • 2nd summer edition was held in Nanjing (CHN) from 16-28 August 2014
  • 3rd summer edition will be held in Buenos Aires (ARG) from 6 to 18 October 2018
