Christy Media Solutions at Nanjing!

Cindy-Marie Leicester, our Consultant covering APAC, is currently in Nanjing, China, at the 2ndSummer Youth Olympic Games.  Here are some behind-the-scenes photos she has snapped, as the event preparations reach their final phase, with the Games opening on 16 August.

More information about the Games:

  • The 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games will be held from 16 to 28 August 2014.
  • The 1st Summer Youth Olympic Games were held in Singapore in 2010.
  • The games are open to athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 .
  • Approximately 3600 athletes from around 200 nations will be competing at the Games.
  • The scale of the Youth Olympic Games is smaller than that of the Olympics, which allows smaller cities to host an Olympic event; potential host cities are required to keep all events within the same city and no new dedicated sports venues should be built.
  • The Nanjing Youth Olympic Games are already proving popular with more than 390,000 tickets already sold and events selling out fast.
  • The sports contested at the Youth Games are the same as those scheduled for the traditional summer Olympics, but with some adaptations, and a limited number of disciplines spread over 222 events.
  • Golf and Rugby Sevens will also be included for the first time in this event, prior to their debut at the Rio 2016 Games.
