Many of the young athletes now gathered in Singapore are feeling great pressure in their fields of competition during the Youth Olympic Games.

At the central square of the Youth Olympic Village, bright music turns the area into a virtual fiesta every night.

Competitors from around the world are getting down with their teammates and rivals.

They are not professional dancers, but their shimmying and shaking nonetheless win applause from everyone.

No matter where they come from, what race they are, or what language they speak ... youthfulness, energy, and smiles are everyone's common features.

Staff members working at the village are also making balloon headgear to give to the athletes free of charge.

The teenagers say they treasure meeting so many young friends.

The game room is not as hot as the square, but it's still a fun place.

Although these activities might not help athletes improve their performances in their sports, they do provide sufficient relaxation both before and after their competitions.
