The Asian Youth Games has livened our little city of Singapore.

We saw young people from Kuwait, Bahrain, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Iraq, North Korea, Palestine, Kazakhstan and more. 44 National Olympic Councils in total!

The international mix of athletes  could be seen at Raffles City and the different competition venues. They were dressed in normal teenage gear: jeans, berms, track pants, t-shirts, slippers. You wouldn’t know which country they were from until you asked.

There was also a high level of potential and talent displayed at the Games.
