The Youth Olympic Games (YOG) are a quadrennial multi-sport event organised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the participating athletes from around the world are aged between 14 and 18 years old.
China is ready to accommodate over 3,500 athletes competing in 30 different disciplines. The event will take place in Nanjing (one of the earliest established cities in what is now China) and will start on Saturday, 16th August with the Opening Ceremony, and finish with the Closing Ceremony taking place on Thursday, 28th.
Athletics, basketball, equestrian jumping, field hockey, swimming, table tennis, sailing and beach volleyball female and male are the disciplines in which Uruguay is represented in Nanjing 2014.
We wish our students María Cecilia Casarotti, Milagros Algorta and Paula Costa (participating in field hockey) the greatest success in this exciting event. Participation in this prestigious competition will be an historic moment for The British Schools and an unforgettable experience for the students taking part.
