As the 99 days to go to Singapore 2010 bell rang last Friday, the Singapore Organising Committee organised an evening celebration at “*Scape”, a venue which will host some of the Culture and Education activities this summer.
The 99 day celebration concluded in style the 4th (and final!) Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Coordination Commission which took place last week in Singapore. Many activities were held such as cultural and musical performances, and also a Basketball tournament featuring the 3 on 3 Basketball event new for the Youth Olympic Games.
The International Olympic Committee has also launched Friday a photo competition on Flickr to capture the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games. We are asking our Youth Olympic Games fans to go grab their cameras and put in pictures the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games! The winner will get to go to Singapore as the official Youth Olympic Games photographer and get a training session with an experienced Olympic photographer.
