First Winter Youth Olympic Games Host City

The Singapore Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee (SYOGOC) congratulates Innsbruck, Austria on winning the bid to host the 1st Winter Youth Olympic Games to be held in 2012.

Following the announcement by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) at their session in Lausanne, Mr Ng Ser Miang, Chairman, SYOGOC, and IOC Executive Board member said: “We would like to congratulate the city of Innsbruck in their successful bid to host the first edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games. Innsbruck’s bid proposal of developing a Media Lab using the different media environments and platforms would help to encourage friendships to be built among youth globally. As an internationally recognised choice winter sports centre, and a two-time host city for the Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and 1976, I am confident that Innsbruck will deliver a successful and memorable Winter Youth Olympic Games come 2012.”
