Ambassadors for Youth Olympic Games announced

PESHAWAR – The International Olympic Committee (IOC) on Wednesday announced an impressive list of 39 inspirational young people who will serve as young ambassadors for the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway.

The list features active athletes, including Olympians and Youth Olympic Games alumni, sports coaches, students and young professionals, all aged between 18 and 28. Despite coming from all walks of life, the young ambassadors, who were nominated by their National Olympic Committees, have one mission in common to support the young athletes and to inspire other young people in their communities using their experiences at the games.

The young ambassadors programme is now in its fourth cycle following its success at the previous three summer and winter games. The programme demonstrates just one of the unique elements of the games, along with the young reporter and athlete role model initiatives.

Samsung has once again pledged its support to the programme by supplying a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ to each young ambassador, enabling mobile technology to enhance their game experience – sharing stories, interacting and promoting the games in their countries.

As well as promoting the games and the Olympic values in their countries, the role of the young ambassadors is to focus on helping the athletes of their national teams. They will encourage them to interact with people from different sports and backgrounds and to take part in a unique programme of activities and workshops, featuring sessions on healthy eating, injury prevention, anti-doping, careers in sport and media training.

The lessons learned will equip the athletes with the sports skills to perform to the best of their ability on the field of play, and the life skills to be true ambassadors of their sport off the field of play, inspiring young people in their communities to get active and embrace the Olympic values.

Previous young ambassadors have credited this unique opportunity as a means to help them pursue professional careers in the field of sport in areas such as events, coaching, media and social development, with many staying within the Olympic movement as volunteers or securing jobs with NOCs, sports federations and organising committees, or even returning to the games in the role of Chef de Mission.

The newly-appointed young ambassadors will gather in Lillehammer from October 1-5, 2015 for a seminar during which they will be fully briefed on their role, and will test out some of the workshops and activities that will be available during games times. The second edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games will be held from February 12-21, 2016 in Lillehammer, Norway.
