The second edition of the Summer Youth Olympic Games will take place from 16 to 28 August in Nanjing, China. You don’t have to be in Nanjing to catch all the action, however, as live and on-demand footage of the 3,800 young athletes participating in the Games can be viewed in a variety of ways.
The official Olympic broadcast partners in over 160 countries and territories around the world will provide the most comprehensive Youth Olympic Games coverage ever. For example, in the host country China, CCTV will provide over 600 hours of live, delayed and highlights coverage of the sports action.
