Lillehammer 2016
Lillehammer (RWH) With 100 days to go, the International Olympic Committee on November 4 announced its latest social media campaign asking athletes to share their love of sport and get active with the #iLoveYOG hashtag.

In line with Olympic Agenda 2020, the Youth Olympic Games aim to engage with fans and young people around the world to encourage them to get active and enjoy the benefits of sport. During Games time, between 12 and 21 February 2016, printing stations will be available around Lillehammer for people to print their pictures posted on social media. Collectively, these thousands of images will create a giant mosaic - a piece of artwork that will then be donated to Lillehammer as part of the legacy of the Games.

The competitions in bobsleigh and skeleton will take place on the Olympic track of 1994 close to the city. The boys and girls in the sports of bobsleigh then for the first time in Olympic history use the Monobob, so every athlete pushes, pilots and brakes the sled on its own.
