Nanjing, China, June 18, 2014 – Singapore recently staged a series of events to help promote the Nanjing 2014, Youth Olympic Games, having successfully staged the inaugural Games in 2010. 

The beach volleyball competition will be held in the Nanjing Youth Olympic Sports Park from 17 to 27 August, 2014 and will feature 30 beach volleyball teams per gender going for gold for the first time after volleyball featured in Singapore 2010. 

The 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games will take place in Nanjing from August 16-18 2014 and will bring together more than 3,800 young athletes from all National Olympic Committees. Athletes aged 15-18 will take part in high level competition while taking part in a series of cultural and educational activities off the field. 

The YOG incorporates customs and traditions from all over the world to give the world's youth a chance to learn about each other through sharing and cultural exchanges.

The Singapore event featured the mascot, Nanjing-LeLe, meeting local young people in the streets in flash mob-like fashion. The event helped spread enthusiasm about the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games to every corner of the world.

The fact that Singapore was the first city to host the Youth Olympic Games, made this series of promotional events even more meaningful. 

One teenager who attended the event, Lorraine Loo, said, “We have a special connection with the Games because we were involved with the first YOG. I’m very happy to have the opportunity to take part again.”
