Google celebrates 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games with interactive doodle that kicked off from today. "Let the games begin! Today's Doodle celebrates the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games, held this year in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Over 200 countries will take part this year, sending thousands of athletes age 15-18 to the summer games," wrote Google on its blog.

The doodle has been done by Cynthia Yuan Cheng and Vrinda Zaveri to wish 'good luck to all the athletes at the 2018 Summer Youth Olympic Games!'The Youth Olympic Games (YOG) are much like the Olympic Games (OG) in many respec which occur every four years in a different city and country with summer and winter editions

The mascot of YOG this year is Pandi - the teen jaguar - who loves sports and is native to Argentina. "The games. Gold, silver, and bronze medals are awarded for first, second, and third place — this year designed by 18-year-old Farid Husen from Indonesia," it informs.

The blog adds, "This year kiteboarding and BMX freestyle park will make their debuts, as well as a new version of handball that's played on the beach. Football (aka soccer) is out, in favor of futsal — an indoor game played on a smaller hard court. This year will also feature mixed gender events as well as mixed National Olympic Committee events, bringing athletes from different countries together on the same team."
