Message from Chairman of SOF

Chairman of Singapore Olympic Foundation

It is my great pleasure to invite all young athletes in Singapore to participate in the 6th Singapore Youth Olympic Festival (SYOF). 

The SYOF, a legacy from the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore, has moved from a biennial event to an annual festival promoting the Olympic values of Excellence, Friendship and Respect. This year’s edition will take us to the will include nine sports, which are popular among our youth in Singapore.

In 2014, our Team Singapore athletes made us proud at the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games - winning four medals in shooting and sailing. Bernie Chin and Samantha Yom became the first Singaporeans to win gold at the Youth Olympic Games.

I would like to encourage all supporters and sports fans to cheer on aspiring athletes in their sporting endeavours. I would also like to thank the organisers, volunteers, participants, officials, sports partners and sponsors for your continued support. 

I look forward to your participation at the SYOF. 

Yours sincerely

Mr Ng Ser Miang
