Full coverage: Nanjing 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games

IOC President Thomas Bach paid a visit to what is being called the Sports Lab. It was there that he met with young athletes and officials from the sports of roller skating, skateboarding, sports climbing and wushu.

The Sports Lab has welcomed large crowds each day since the start of the Games on August 17th. It is a unique concept that allows the four individual sports to be showcased during a series of two-hour sessions twice daily. Top athletes from each of the sports are given 30 minutes to entertain onlookers with their athletic abilities. Following each session, spectators are invited to try out the sports themselves while the athletes provide tips.

As part of Nanjing 2014’s legacy plans, the Sports Lab facility will remain in place after the Youth Olympic Games and will be made available for use by the public.
