Accreditation: Winter Youth Olympics

From the BOA

More than a thousand young athletes aged 15 to 18 will travel to Innsbruck, Austria, to compete in the first Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) next January, 13-22.

The Great Britain team is expected to consist of around 20 athletes across eight disciplines.

Building on the experience of the first Summer YOG held in Singapore last year, the event presents the innovative concept of a fully integrated sports and culture experience for young athletes from around the world who will compete in 63 medal events in seven Olympic winter sports and 15 disciplines.

The participants will also take part in a Culture and Education Programme focused on themes ranging from Olympism and Olympic values to skills development.

Media representatives wishing to cover the Winter Youth Olympic Games are required to complete the accreditation application on the IOC website. This applies to written, photography and broadcast media.
