Innsbruck, Austria, will host the first ever Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) from 13 to 22 January, 2012. With over 1,000 athletes from 70 nations taking part, the Games will be a launch pad for budding athletes with true Olympic dreams.
The Winter YOG is an important event in Olympic and sporting history. Not only will it be the first ever Winter Games for young people, it will also be the first time the Olympic flame will be lit in the same city on three separate occasions. Having hosted the Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and 1976, Innsbruck is a fitting host for the inaugural Winter YOG.
