Buenos Aires 2018 - Two days to go in pictures

5 October 2018

BUENOS AIRES 2018: With just two days to go until the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games, see the village through the eyes of our Youth Olympians and experience what it's like to be at Buenos Aires 2018.

Olympic Obelisk

The whole city is counting down to Saturday's (Sunday morning AEDT) Opening Ceremony. Final preparations are being made around the city to start the Youth Olympic celebrations with a bang.

Ned Middlehurst

Ned is climbing the walls waiting for competition to kick off. You can catch the sports climbing action from Monday October 8, with finals two days later streamed live.

BA Juggling

Team Aus is getting into the Village vibes - which means when they're not training they're enjoying entertainment like acrobats and jugglers. Discus thrower Sally Shockry said she was surprised by the range of activities.  

"It’s great because you get to fill in your day with more than just sport. 

“I learnt how to juggle in the circus activity yesterday. I’m still not 100% there, but they’re here every day so I’m going to go back and practice.” 

Archery

Archer Jason Hurnall has his eye on the prize.

Benjamin Gould 

Table tennis athlete Ben Gould trains with his coach in preparation for competition.

Giselle Stogdale

Roller speed skater Giselle Stogdale races towards the Buenos Aires 2018 startline.

Aussie BVB

Men's beach volleyballers Mark Nicolaidis and James Takken hit it out at Green Park.

Training sessions continue on the final day before the Opening Ceremony. Plus Team Aus will be officially welcomed to the Games at the Welcome Ceremony in the Village and members of the Australian Team have been invited to a function at the Australia Embassy in Buenos Aires.
