Description

It is planned to stage the 2nd Asian Youth Games in the historic Chinese city of Nanjing from August 16-24, 2013. Just like in Singapore in 2009, it will be a full-scale dress rehearsal for the International Olympic Committee’s Youth Olympic Games the following year.

Initally, organisers proposed nine sports - athletics, swimming (including diving), 3-on-3 basketball, tennis, judo, fencing, weightlifting, football and table tennis – but the programme is being expanded.

Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu province, hosted China’s 10th National Games in October 2005, so the infrastructure is already in place.
