A photofeature on the Youth Olympic Games, Singapore

My tryst with Singapore has always been filled with tourist attractions. But this time, I was lured to Singapore by a sporting event . Sitting in the stadium and listening to the cheers that reverberated through the stands, it was amazing to experience the energy out here. The opening ceremony of the Youth Olympic Games that saw more than 200 countries participating was just about to begin. My goodie bag was filled with trinkets that added to the light and sound of the event .The performances were vibrant and the stadium cheered as the athletes marched on. The Olympics anthem was sung, as the torch was brought in on a float . Fireworks galore, the entire Marina Bay was bathed in lights and music.

Have you been to the Youth Olympic Games before or seen a more colourful display ?

    I could not agree with Munish. Such colorful celebrations are necessary to rejuvenate people periodically. Nice pictures. I hope my niece there would have enjoyed the events.
