The 1st Asian Youth Games will be officially opened by Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on 29th June 2009 in the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Over 1000 athletes aged between 14 and 17 from 42 countries will be competing in more than 90 sporting events from June 29, 2009 to July 7, 2009.
Athletes and officials are housed at the Games Village at Swissotel The Stamford. Due to the recent H1N1 outbreak, one level on the ninth floor of the 5-star hotel has been set aside for atheletes who have suspected cases.
An athlete from the Philippines and 4 Hong Kong footballers have been tested positive for H1N1 flu. All are doing well.
I have several requests from overseas friends to buy Asian Youth Games Singapore 2009 merchandise. The T-shirts and caps are pretty cool!
Go Singapore! Go! Go! Go!
