Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame Day 1

7 August 2010

The Youth Olympic Flame had arrived in Singapore after travelling through Berlin, Dakar, Mexico City, Auckland and Seoul. In March 2009, the International Olympics Committee decided that torch relays for all future Olympic Games will be held within the host city. An exception was made Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (SYOG)!

The torch relay for Day 1 of the Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame (JYOF) was held within the Central Singapore District, covering places like Ang Mo Kio and Bishan.

I helped Samuel, a friend I made via the MillionDeedsChallenge portal, to video his historic moment. I also helped Sin Yan, my fellow SSEAYP

  1. It's really fun joining this kind of Youth Olympic Flame! I hope there would be another next year.
