The Olympic Federation of Ireland has named a squad of 16 athletes from 9 sports, to compete at the Summer Youth Olympic Games in October in Buenos Aires. Competition runs from October 6 to October 18 featuring over 4,000 athletes and over 32 sports. Georgia Drummy has been selected to represent Ireland in the Girl’s Singles Tennis Event at the Games.
This will be the third edition of the Youth Olympic Games which are hosted every four years. The Games provide invaluable Olympic experience and competition for talented junior athletes aged 15 to 18 from over 200 countries around the world.
The event replicates many features of the Summer Olympic Games with a fully maintained Athletes’ Village. In recognition of the role the games play in the development of future athletes, the Youth Olympic Games also integrates a Culture and Education programme.
Best of luck to Georgia and keep up to date with her progress on Tennis Ireland’s social media platforms.
