The Youth Olympic Games (YOG) is an international multi-sport event organized by the International Olympic Committee. The games are held every four years in staggered summer and winter events consistent with the current Olympic Games format. In 2014 Canada was proudly represented by Kali Sayers (Alberta) who notably won the women’s fencing portion of the modern pentathlon event.
The next summer YOG to take place will be the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games of Buenos Aires.
