The 2026 Summer Youth Olympics, officially known as the IV Summer Youth Olympic Games (French: Les IVème Jeux Olympiques de la jeunesse d'été), and commonly known as Dakar 2026 will be the fourth edition of the Summer Youth Olympics, an international sports, education and cultural festival for teenagers, in a city designated by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). It was originally planned to be held in Dakar, Senegal for 18 days from 22 October to 9 November 2022, becoming the first IOC event to be held in Africa and the first in a Muslim-Majority Country. However, on 17 July 2020 the IOC and Senegal agreed to postpone the games to 2026 due to the operational and economical consequences of the postponement of the 2020 Summer Olympics to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1][2]

Originally scheduled to be held in 2022, on 9 December 2014 at the 127th IOC Session it was decided to move the organisation of the YOG to a non-Olympic year, starting with the 4th Summer Youth Olympic Games, to be postponed from 2022 to 2023.[3] Subsequently, the IOC reverted to a 2022 date, and announced in February 2018 that they would be recommending that the event be held in Africa.[4] The 132nd IOC Session confirmed the change of date back to 2022 on 7 February 2018.[5] The host was announced at the 133rd IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina during the 2018 edition.[6]
