With 50 days to go until the International Olympic Committee (IOC) vote on the 2018 Youth Olympic Games host, the Glasgows bid team is mounting the final push for the city’s bid.

Glasgow is aiming to engage around one million young people to get active across the UK by decision day on 4 July.

The city has pledged that the Glasgow 2018 YOG, in partnership with the IOC, will enable the Olympic Movement to achieve lasting global impact by engaging with millions of young people.

The Bid Team have reached out to school pupils in Glasgow and around 26,000 schools across the UK and are engaging with young people through soial media platforms.

A national network of sportscotland's school champions, along with youth charity National Young Scot, are also promoting the Bid across Scotland.

Glasgow 2018 Bid Director, Paul Bush, said: "Young people have embraced this Bid in exactly the way we had hoped. Glasgow has the experience and expertise to stage a world-class sporting event and what a privilege it would be to harness its ambition and vision for its young people to use its proven youth networks to work in partnership with the Olympic Movement to empower young people across the world."

The Youth Olympic Games is an international sporting event for the best young athletes in the world that aims to inspire young people to participate in sport. Young athletes (15-18 years of age) compete in all 28 Olympic sports over 12 days of world-class competition.

Glasgow became the UK's Candidate City for the 2018 YOG in February 2012.
