12OLYMPIC REVIEW The IOC has launched a dedicated Youth Olympic Games section on its official website www. olympic. org, highlighting the spirit and the fun of the Youth Olympic Games. This Youth Olympic Games section, which has become known as " The Cube", was launched in the autumn following www. olympic. org's revamp. This section will support and promote youth projects and creations worldwide and promote the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games. The Cube will feature news on the upcoming Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games and will also allow young people to engage and participate in YOG- related activities in the build- up to next August. BelowThe new YOG website A new visual identity targeted at young people for the Youth Olympic Games was launched in November 2009. In keeping with the experimental, youthful principles of the Youth Olympic Games, the YOG- DNA label is a not an emblem, nor an institutional mark, but a stamp which helps identify the YOG. It certifies an attitude - " the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games". Gilbert Felli, Olympic Games Executive Director, said: " The Youth Olympic Games aren't just a high level sports event, but also a platform to engage young people in the Olympic Values. The aim of the YOG-DNA label is to represent the Movement for those young people who are ambassadors of " the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games". It is a youthful, dynamic take on Olympic traditions and will become a ' seal of approval' for YOG activities." THECUBEHASLANDED! VISUALIDENTITY MEDALDESIGN COMPETITION The IOC has offered the public a chance to make Olympic history by designing an Olympic medal for the Youth Olympic Games. People around the world have been invited to submit their medal designs for the Youth Olympic Games ( YOG), which will be held in Singapore next year, from 14 to 26 August 2010. Sergey Bubka, Chairman of the Coordination Commission for Singapore 2010 said: " The concept for the first ever Youth Olympic Games has always been not only to reach out to the 3,600 athletes who will participate in Singapore next summer, but also to engage young people in the Olympic values wherever they may be. " By launching the first ever medal design competition online we hope to tap into the creativity and imagination of young people across the world." The public was also invited to vote for the 10 best medal designs which have been submitted to an IOC jury to select the winner. The winning designer will win a trip to the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games next summer and be able to see first hand their design being awarded to the athletes. They will also win a gold medal replica. Keep tuned on the new YOG webpage on www. olympic. org to find out who won the competition!

OLYMPIC REVIEW13 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2014 The Candidature Files of the three Candidate Cities of Guadalajara ( Mexico), Nanjing ( China), and Poznan ( Poland) were submitted last September and the IOC President has appointed an Evaluation Commission to analyse the projects put forward for the 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games ( YOG) in 2014.

Singapore continues to create Olympic history with the creation of the Culture and Education pictograms. They have been specifically designed to symbolise the culture and education activities which will be part of Singapore's participants programme, bringing culture and education to life. The Singapore Organising Committee ( SYOGOC), in partnership with the IOC, is developing the Culture and Education Prgramme ( CEP) around fun and interactive activities. The programme, based on the five CEP themes of Olympism, Skills Development, Well- Being and Healthy Lifestyle, Social Responsibility and Expression, will be implemented through the following seven formats, each with its own pictogram: Arts and Culture A celebration of youth, cultures and friendships made at the Games, through music, dance and art in the Youth Olympic Village. Chat with Champions Participants will meet with Olympians and global leaders to share their personal experience and inspirational stories. Discovery Activity Interactive exhibitions and workshops about the history of Olympism, health and nutritional matters, careers in sport, and learning about key global issues. World Culture Village Located in the Youth Olympic Village, it will host cultural booths featuring each of the participating National Olympic Committees. Island Adventure Participants go through confidence-building courses, take part in water activities, and overcome physical challenges, to develop friendship and respect based on one of Singapore's islands. Community Projects Through Community Projects such as circus acts or drumming, participants will get to make friends with the local beneficiaries, learn about social responsibility and be encouraged to contribute back to their own communities.
