years ago this week, the first ever Sum­mer Youth Olympics opened in Sin­ga­pore. Around 3,600 ath­letes aged 14-18 from 204 na­tions took part, with stars such as Tom Da­ley and Jade Jones rep­re­sent­ing Great Britain at the games. The next Youth Olympics, orig­i­nally planned to be held in Dakar in Sene­gal in 2022, has been post­poned un­til 2026 due to the COVID-19 pan­demic.
