Chad Le Clos announced as YOG Ambassador!

August 30th, 2013

Now, our journey with Chad has come full circle as, with less than one year to go to the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games, we can officially announce him as our latest YOG Ambassador.

Speaking about his nomination, the 21-year-old said: “The Youth Olympic Games were a huge stepping stone for me and helped me enormously in preparing for the pressures of my first Olympic Games in London. But more than the sport, the memories and friends that I made will last forever, and I’m excited to be part of the YOG experience once again.”
Chad follows in the footsteps of his inspiration, Michael Phelps, who served as a YOG Ambassador in Singapore in 2010.

“Michael was always an idol of mine growing up, and he was an inspiration to me going into the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games,” Chad added. “To be that source of inspiration for a whole new generation of athletes preparing for Nanjing 2014 is truly an honour.”

It’s great to have you on board, Chad! Stay tuned for our exclusive videos with Chad, including his training tips, a special YOG challenge and much, much more, coming soon.
