Effort On Youth Olympic Games To Be Celebrated, Regardless Of Bid’s Success

SINGAPORE: Singapore’s fate is sealed on Friday, on whether it will host the Youth Olympic Games in 2010.

International Olympic Committee members had till 15 February to post their ballots, but the results will only be announced on 21 February.

Until then, the momentum continues to impress upon the world that Singapore is ready for the Games – said Parliamentary Secretary for Community Development Teo Ser Luck.

Speaking to reporters at a Boys Town event in support of the bid, he said there are many more activities in the pipeline till next Thursday to continue the momentum.

He said he is ‘quietly confident’ of a win, and added that there will be a celebration no matter what.

“We will have a party, a party not just to celebrate the outcome of the results, but more importantly it’s to celebrate all the effort that has been put in by Singaporeans and all the organisations in Singapore,” Mr Teo said.

He continued: “I want to thank the public for bringing us so far. I think it is a very commendable feat. All of us are truly inspired and very encouraged.” -CNA/vm
