The International Olympic Committee (IOC) today announced that it has received the Candidature Files of the three Candidate Cities bidding to host the 2nd Summer Youth Olympic Games in 2014. Guadalajara (Mexico), Nanjing (China) and Poznan (Poland)  all delivered their files before the deadline of 5 p.m. today.
The Candidature Files have been prepared in response to an IOC questionnaire. They will be analysed by an IOC Evaluation Commission, which will prepare a report that will be published and submitted to the IOC Executive Board and the IOC members before the election of the host city in February 2010 at the 122nd IOC Session in Vancouver.
Please note that the IOC will not release the Candidature Files, but has informed the Candidate Cities that they may make their files public should they so wish.
The first Summer Youth Olympic Games will take place in Singapore in 2010 (www.singapore2010.sg) and the first Winter Youth Olympic Games will take place in Innsbruck in 2012 (www.innsbruck2012.com).
