Glasgow 2018 - less than 50 days to go


On 13 February, Glasgow successfully made the International Olympic Committee shortlist of candidate cities for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games and we’ve made the final 3 in a race to the finish alongside bids from Medellin in Columbia and Buenos Aires in Argentina.

The International Olympic Committee will make their final decision and the winning host city will be announced on Thursday 4 July 2013 so while we don’t have long to wait, we need to make this final stage count!

We’re delighted to confirm that some of our top Olympians are showing their support for Glasgow 2018 with Sir Chris Hoy, Katherine Grainger, Jade Jones and Michael Jamieson all taking on a Glasgow 2018 Bid Champion role to increase awareness and support.  They are excited to be part of our campaign – join them and help us win the 2018 Youth Olympic Games for Glasgow!
