Fair Play at the Lillehammer 2016 Winter YOG
There are less than two months to go until the start of the 2nd Winter Youth Olympic Games (WYOG) in Lillehammer and the International Fair Play Committee (CIFP) is preparing for its participation in the Learn & Share activities of the event for the fourth time in a row.
For athletes aged 15 to 18, the Youth Olympic Games are the global highest-level multi-sport event which integrates education and culture, inspiring them to live by the Olympic values and become ambassadors of Olympism.
The Learn & Share (formerly known as the Culture and Education Programme) is a fully integrated part of the YOG. This fundamental component of the event offers a unique opportunity to share experiences for the young athletes and other participants equipping them with the key skills to become sport champions on the field of play and life champions off the field of play.
At the invitation of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the CIFP launched its fair play programme on the occasion of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010. Since then, a number of interactive activities have been developed for the purpose of promoting sportsmanship and its values among the young generation of athletes.
The International Fair Play Committee is proud to have been part of the Olympic Movement and this flagship event of the IOC and looks forward to presenting its fair play games in Lillehammer between 12 and 21 February.
