Nordhagen, Svein Erik

Edited by Inland Norway University of Applied Sciences - 2020

The establishment of the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in 2007 was presented as the IOC’s main strategy to promote the education of youth. The positioning of education as equal to sports competitions through integrated educational programs separates the YOG from the Olympic Games and other international elite sporting events. The aim of this thesis is to examine the YOG as an educational arena for the target youth groups in a high-performance setting with the 2016 YOG in Lillehammer as the case. More specifically, the thesis explores how the educational programs in the YOG concept were facilitated by the organizers and received by the athletes and local youth through the 2016 YOG
