Sergei Bubka to chair IOC panel monitoring 2010 Singapore Youth Olympics

Former Olympic and world pole vault champion Sergei Bubka will lead the IOC panel monitoring preparations for the first Summer Youth Olympics in Singapore in 2010.
The Ukrainian, who sits on the International Olympic Committee executive board, was named Thursday as chairman of the eight-man coordination commission for the Singapore event.
The others are IOC members Syed Shahid Ali of Pakistan, Nat Indrapana of Thailand, Raja Randhir Singh of India and Frank Fredericks of Zimbabwe, national Olympic committee official Guido de Bondt, sports federation delegate Andrew Ryan and IOC Olympic Games executive director Gilbert Felli.
IOC president Jacques Rogge and Bubka will visit Singapore in early April.
Singapore was awarded the games last week, defeating Moscow in a postal ballot of IOC members.
The Youth Games will feature about 3,200 athletes aged 14-18 competing in 26 sports. The first Winter Youth Olympics will be in 2012.
