SINGAPORE, Aug. 22, 2010 – Jesse Glenn of Northridge, Calif., and Hunter Brewster of Lafayette, La., wrapped up their participation in the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. The USA’s Polina Kozitskiy of Fountainville, Pa., will compete in rhythmic gymnastics later this week.
Glenn, who trains at SCATS, was eighth in the still rings event finals. Brewster, who trains at Trampoline and Tumbling Express, finished 11th in men’s trampoline. Earlier in the Games, Savannah Vinsant, who also is from Lafayette and trains at Trampoline and Tumbling Express, landed in fifth place in women’s trampoline.
The U.S. Olympic Committee sent a team of nearly 80 athletes to the 2010 Youth Olympic Games, which began with the Opening Ceremony on August 14. The USA entered three athletes in gymnastics, one for each of three disciplines: men’s artistic gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics and men’s trampoline.
The Youth Olympic Games is an international multi-sport event of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) that will bring together 3,600 athletes (between the ages of 14 and 18) from all 205 National Olympic Committees and competing in the 26 sports of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. The Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games run from Aug. 14-26 and feature a cultural and education program, with the goal of increasing participants’ awareness of the Olympic values and topics, such as healthy lifestyles and the fight against doping.
