As you may or may not know, the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) is only days away and we will be there to represent our nation. One of our talented athletes, Adonis DIAZ (m -66kg) set out to Nanjing, China where the games will be held. He is scheduled to compete from August 17 – 24. Stay tuned for updates.

It had been previously announced that Alex HYATT (f -44kg) would be joining Adonis at the Youth Olympics on behalf of USA Judo; however, she has withdrawn from participation due to injury.

The Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games will host an expected 3,800 athletes from 204 nations, including 90 from the United States. The sport program will encompass all 28 sports that will be featured at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
