Moscow one step from hosting first Youth Olympics

Moscow and Singapore are the two cities left in the running to host the first ever Youth Olympic Games.

The International Olympic Committee whittled down a shortlist of five cities – Turin, Bangkok, Moscow, Athens and Singapore – to two, deeming that Moscow and Singapore are the areas to present the least risk in terms of safety and ability to raise funds.

The winner will be announced on February 21.
