Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games “on track for success”

Nanjing, China, May 17, 2013 - The Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee (NYOGOC) is well on track to deliver successful Games next summer, according to the IOC Coordination Commission, which concluded its fourth visit to the Chinese city on Thursday.

The second Youth Olympic Games are set to take place from August 16 to 28, 2014 in the Chinese city and it will be the first time beach volleyball will be included as a sport.

While just volleyball made it to the list of sports for the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, next year’s Games will only feature beach volleyball. The event will be held at the Nanjing Youth Olympic Sport Park alongside a number of other sports including rugby, BMX and hockey. Situated 20 minutes from the centre of the city, construction of the complex is expected to be completed by the end of 2013.

With 15 months to go to the second edition of the summer Youth Olympic Games, the Coordination Commission, chaired by Alexander Popov, congratulated NYOGOC on its continued dedication and commitment, and was particularly pleased to see the level of detailed preparation presented as the organisers look ahead to the operational readiness phase.

Speaking after the close of the three-day meeting, Alexander Popov said: “NYOGOC’s vision for the second Summer Youth Olympic Games is now really taking shape, and the Coordination Commission congratulates it on its progress. As we start climbing the hill toward the final countdown, the coming months will be crucial for YOG preparation, and will present NYOGOC with key opportunities to let the youth of the world know that the YOG spirit is coming to Nanjing and that all are welcome.”
