About European Youth Olympic Winter Festival:
Summer and Winter European Youth Olympic Festivals represent the top events for young athletes between the ages of 14 and 18. These events are organized in two-year cycles, always in odd years, resulting from the initiative of the Association of European Olympic Committees (EOC).
Jacques Rogge, current President of the International Olympic Committee, became the author and founder of the so-called small Olympics for youth of the “Old Continent” at the beginning of the 1990s. Summer sports had their premiere in Brussels, Belgium in 1991; Winter sports followed two years later in Aosta, Italy – both under the old name: EYOD (European Youth Olympic Days).
“This Festival provides young European athletes with great motivation, as it renders sense to their carriers from the very beginning.”– Jacques Rogge, President of the International Olympic Committee and founder of this competition.
