A YOG day with Olympic champion Chad le Clos

November 25th, 2014

Despite the jetlag, Chad was ever the professional, putting lack of sleep to one side and eager to fulfil his duties as a YOG Ambassador and inspire the next generation of athletes as this video shows. From swimming workshops in the pool, practising the martial art of wushu at the Sports Lab, to holding motivational talks with athletes, taking countless selfies with fans, and meeting the IOC President!

“Believe in yourselves when others are doubtful. Dream big!”  This was the message that the YOG Ambassador wrote on the Athletes’ Pledge Wall during his visit to the Learn and Share booth in the Youth Olympic Village, words that will hopefully inspire young athletes to aim high, enjoy sport and become true ambassadors just like Chad.
