These Games are a tremendous opportunity for the youth of the world to compete and shine on their own Olympic stage. The message of the Youth Olympic Games is clear; this isn't just a competition but also the opportunity to discover the Olympic values.

Nanjing, which will spend a reported 117 million US dollars to host the Games, proposed in its bid to stage the events, open to athletes aged 15-18, will be held August 16-28.

Nanjing will keep its costs down by using existing competition venues. It has 21 facilities, including world-class stadiums built for the China National Games five years ago. The IOC stipulations require a minimum 25 venues.
