9780071281645: Perspective on Physical Education and Sports Science: An Eye on the Youth Olympic Games 2010

In 2008, Singapore secured the bid to host the first-ever Youth Olympic Games in 2010. The eyes of the world will be on Singapore as the games - now a national concern - encompasses an initiative to invite the international sporting youth to participate, not only in competitive games, but also in educational and cultural activities. This event as well as Singapore's silver medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the Singapore F1 Grand Prix -- Formula One's inaugural night race -- have acted as catalysts for more young Singaporeans to engage in sports.
