Technogym to Supply Singapore Youth Olympics

Technogym to Supply Singapore Youth Olympics
July 7, 2009

Technogym has been appointed as official supplier for the first the Youth Olympic Games taking place in Singapore from 14th to 26th August 2010.

Technogym's official supplier status follows its involvement with the Sydney 2000, Athens 2004 and Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and the Turin 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

In Singapore, over 3,500 young athletes from 170 countries will be training with Technogym. Technogym will equip a fitness centre at the Olympic Village which will cater for the athletesâ preparation with 150 cardio, strength and movement equipment pieces. The gym will be developed to offer a complete training solution for all sport disciplines: a cardio area fitted with top of the range Excite equipment, a movement area with FLEXability and Kinesis, a strength training area with Selection and the new Pure Strength specifically designed for the performance training of athletes, and a big space dedicated to free weight training.

The facility will include the Technogym state of the art technologies like FLEXability concept, a new solution to make stretching easy and accurate after their long cardio sessions. Another star at the gym will be Kinesis, the exclusive Technogym free cable system allowing athletes of different disciplines to simulate sport specific movements. Making its debut at the international event is the VARIO, a new concept which allows each athlete to train following his/her personal stride.

Youth Olympics are a multidiscipline sport event inspired by the Olympic games and dedicated to young athletes from 14 to 18 years old, competing in 26 sport disciplines. Each county will be represented by at least four athletes divided in different age categories.

As Jim Farnham, Technogym Australia's General Manager explains "after being an Olympics Games partner for four consecutive Games, Technogym is very proud to support the Youth Olympic movement.

"The Singapore Games will play a fundamental role in educating younger generations of the value of sport and regular physical exercise."
