At the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics, 36 athletics events were contested – 18 for boys and 18 for girls – on 17–19 and 21–23 August 2010.[1][2] The events took place in Bishan Stadium, Singapore.[3] Athletes born between January 1, 1993 and December 31, 1994 were eligible to compete.[4] Continents selected their athletes through Youth Continental Championships (Continental Youth Olympic Trials).

While most events mirrored those at the Summer Olympic Games, some events were distinct from the Games' senior counterpart. A 1000 metres race was scheduled in place of the more traditional 800/1,500 metres races. The steeplechase was held over 2000 m, instead of the seniors' 3000 m distance, and the competition featured a medley relay with legs of 100 m, 200 m, 300 m and 400 m (in the Swedish style). Combined (or multi-discipline) events were not contested.[5]

Competition format[edit]

Games events[edit]

The 2000-metre Girls' Steeplechase event on 23 August 2010, the final day of athletics competition at the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics

Seventeen individual events and one relay were contested, making a total of 18 events for girls and boys. Some events differed between the girls and the boys.

Sprints, Hurdles, and Relays

For the sprints, hurdles, and relays, there were two stages consisting of two rounds: Round 1 and the Finals. Depending on the final number of entries, two to three or more heats were necessary. From results achieved in Round 1, athletes were placed in A, B or C (or additional) Finals, in accordance with procedures determined by the Event Delegate. Final placings in each discipline were determined by adding each athlete's time in the Stage 1 Final to his or her time in the Stage 2 Final. Ties were resolved in favour of the athlete with the faster time in either Final.[2]

Mid and Long Distance

Some confusion was caused by a mid-2009 Singapore Athletics document appearing to suggest that placings in the heats and the finals would be added to give a final placing.[2] Depending on their performance in the heats, athletes were allocated to a A, B or C final. The final placings were decided by the placings in the final only, and the placings in the A final determined the medals with no reference to the heats. The B final determined positions 9–16 and so on.[9]

Horizontal Jumps and Throws

Similar to the Mid and Long Distance events. In the finals for each event, athletes had four attempts.[2]

High Jump and Pole Vault

Similar to Mid and Long Distance events. Final placings in each discipline were determined by adding each athlete's best result in the Stage 1 Final to his or her best result in the Stage 2 Final. Ties were resolved in favour of the athlete with the best individual result in either Final.[2]
