Third Youth Olympic Games Set For October 2018

MBR FAST FACT: The third Youth Summer Olympic Games will be held October 6-18, 2018 in Buenos Aires. The first was held in Singapore in 2010. The concept came from Austrian industrial manager Johann Rosenzopf in 1998. This was in response to growing global concerns about childhood obesity and the dropping participation of youth in sport activities, especially amongst youth in developed nations. Over 200 countries and 3,600 athletes participated in 2010. These Games are for youth 14-18.
