In July 2007 the International Olympic Committee established the Youth Olympic Games (YOG), an international sports, education and cultural festival for teenagers.

On February 10, 2010 the IOC during their 122nd Session in Vancouver city elected Nanjing city in China, to host the second Summer Youth Olympic Games. The Games officially known as “II Summer Youth Olympic Games” were held from August 16, 2014 to August 28, 2014. In the logo for the Games, the colourful “NANJING” reflects the image of the gate of Nanjing and the features of some Jiangnan houses. The various colours symbolize the  energetic spirit of youth.

In whatever task the Chinese undertake, they exhibit their talent par excellence.

I wonder whether there is anything the Chinese cannot do!

At the opening ceremony of the II Summer Youth Olympic Games, about 500 Chinese youths performed a scintillating ingenious performance. They called the event “Dancing in the Sky.”

After forming a pyramid, 100 youths took to the air inside the immense sports stadium.

There, under the artificial stars they performed a breathtaking kaleidoscopic aerial acrobatic routine.

This is the first time a creative performance, such as this has been performed anywhere in the world.

Here is a video clip of their awe-inspiring performance.
