I’m pleased and proud to share the news that Glasgow has been shortlisted in the race to host 2018 Youth Olympic Games.
For many young athletes the Youth Olympic Games will be the first step towards competing at the very highest level and it is fantastic to think that they may be taking those steps in Glasgow.
The city has a proven track record of delivering major international sporting events in world-class facilities in front of passionate crowds – something that any young athlete would respond to.
At the same time Glasgow has shown a very real commitment to developing sport at all levels, particularly for young people, making the city the perfect host city for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games.
