FIS is excited to name the selection of world-class athletes who will serve as Athlete Role Models (ARM) at the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Gangwon 2024.
These athletes will play a vital role in mentoring and shaping the future of young, aspiring athletes as part of the ARM programme.
The ARM programme has always been an important part of the YOG, from the first ever edition in, Singapore 2010. And this will be no different at the 4th Winter Youth Olympic Games, Gangwon 2024, set to begin on 19 January.
The ARMs are selected by the International Federations whose sports will be featured at Gangwon 2024. They will be on hand to talk to, encourage, mentor and help all the brilliant young athletes who have made it to Gangwon 2024.
Every ARM is an Olympian, with a passionate belief in the power of sport and the Olympic values. They are giving back to sport and inspiring young athletes.
Get to know the FIS Athlete Rolemodels:
Magnus Boee (NOR, Cross-Country Skiing)
Sami Kennedy-Sim (AUS, Freestyle Skiing)
Eric Frenzel (GER, Nordic Combined)
All the ARMs will engage and share their experiences with the athletes in the Youth Olympic Village, at training and competition venues, and during a series of educational activities and workshops, in addition to helping out with sports initiations.
We congratulate them all, and can’t wait to welcome them to the YOG Gangwon 2024!
