According to The President of the international Olympic Committee, JACQUE ROGGE the youth Olympics was a concentration on Youth, Sport and Culture: He addressed them a strong message:

“You will learn the difference between winning and being a champion. To win, you merely have to cross the finish line first. To be a champion, you have to inspire admiration for your character, as well as for your physical talent. You have to compete in spirit of fair play, respecting your opponents and the rules – without doping or any other unfair advantage”
