Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010

The Armenian Community in Singapore warmly embraced the Armenian National Olympic Team at the first-ever Youth Olympic Games, held in Singapore from August 14-26.

The community organised several events with the goal of having the Armenian Team experience the amazing wonders of Singapore. The Team visited a number of landmarks representing the positive Armenian historical contributions to Singapore, including: Armenian Street, the Raffles Hotel, the Straits Times (national newspaper), the Vanda Miss Joaquim (Singapore's national flower) and the Armenian Apostolic Church of St. Gregory the Illuminator, the oldest Christian Church in Singapore.

The events culminated in a reception held at the Armenian Church in Singapore where members of the local Armenian Community and the Armenian National Olympic Team were able to meet and share their impressions about their experience in Singapore.
