The competition format is as follows:

1. Venue & Dates

The equestrian competitions of Nanjing 2014 will be held at the Xinzhuang Equestrian Venue on 19 to 24 August, 2014.

2. Events

A total of 2, including a team event and an individual event.

3. Medals

The top three riders or teams from each event will be awarded the gold, silver and bronze medals respectively.

Nanjing 2014 Summer Youth Olympic Games will see a total of 2 gold medals in equestrian. The gold medal dates are 20 (1) and 24 (1) August, 2014.

4. Number of Athletes

100 athletes in total: 50 male and 50 female.

5. Competition Format

Thirty riders will compete in the Equestrian Jumping discipline at the Youth Olympic Games. Rider/horse combinations jump a series of obstacles all designed to test the rider's skill and the horse's jumping ability. Penalties are given for faults such as knocking down an obstacle, refusals and exceeding the time allowed.

There are two events: the Jumping International Team and the Jumping Individual events.

The Jumping International Team event consists of two rounds, Round 1 and Round 2. A total of six teams compete in the team event (one team per continent). A team consists of a maximum of five rider/horse combinations. A minimum of three rider/horse combinations are required for a team. All teams compete in both rounds. A draw establishes the start order of the teams. The order to go is made out with the riders placed in the positions decided by the chef d'équipe. In each round the team points are the sum of the penalty points incurred by the three riders with the lowest penalty points in the team. The starting order in Round 1 is established by a draw. The team results in Round 1 are used to set the start list for Round 2. The Team Event final ranking is based on the total number of team penalty points incurred in both rounds (three lowest penalty points out of five riders in each round).

The Jumping Individual event consists of two rounds, Round A and Round B. All riders/horses compete in both rounds. The starting order in Round A is established by a draw. The results in Round A are used to set the start list for Round B. The final ranking of riders is based on the total number of penalty points incurred in both rounds (lower penalty points=higher rank).

Horses will be allocated to competitors by a draw held after the horse inspection. The drawn rider/horse combination will remain the same for both the Individual and Team events. A separate draw for order to go will be held prior to the competition start.

Differences between the FEI Junior Continental Championships and the Youth Olympic Games

To be eligible for the YOG, the riders must be born between 1 January 1996 and 31 December 1997. In addition, the riders must have a Certificate of Capability. The certificate can be obtained either through the Junior/Young Rider Continental Championships or the FEI Challenge Category A, after achieving a score of not more than eight penalties in the first round of any of the competitions.

NOC quota: Maximum of one rider per NOC.

A key difference between the Youth Olympic Games and the Continental Championships is that horses are provided by the Organizing Committee at the YOG.

Team Ireland golfers Kevin Le Blanc and Olivia Mehaffey will play in the Mixed Team Event.

Mixed Team event format

Teams are made up of one male and one female player. Players are primarily from the same NOC, but if not possible, can be from different NOCs. They will be grouped with a different team for rounds 1 and 2, and then there will be a seeded draw for round 3, with the leading teams teeing off last.

The Mixed Team event will be all stroke play as follows:

First round: foursome (pairs of players play as partners, and each pair plays a single ball, taking alternating strokes. The IGF Event Delegate will stipulate the tees to be used by men and women.)

Second round: four-ball (pairs of players play as partners, with each playing their own ball. The lower score of the partners is the score for the hole. If one partner fails to complete a hole, there is no penalty. The IGF Event Delegate will stipulate the tees to be used by men and women.)

Third round: individual men and individual women.

Team event is played over 72 holes (4 rounds x18 holes).

The team score is the addition of the first and the second rounds as well as individual scores achieved by the men (third round) and women (fourth round). The team that has the lowest cumulative score for the three rounds is the winner.

Team Ireland Opening Ceremony flag bearer Richard Hendrick, coached by three time Olympian Eoin Rheinisch will be in action on Saturday, August 23rd in the Men's C1 Head to head sprint.

5. Competition Format

The Canoe-Kayak competition at the Nanjing Youth Olympic Games consists of eight events as follows:

Differences between the ICF Junior World Championships and the Youth Olympic Games

The competition format of Canoe-Kayak for the Youth Olympic Games is completely different from the ICF Junior World Championships. In the Canoe Sprint events the athletes paddle on a circuit course, and compete head to head against each other. For the Canoe Slalom events the athletes compete on a calm water surface as opposed to a natural river or artificial Slalom course. However, they still need to demonstrate the skills of a Slalom paddler by manoeuvring around gates and also beating the other athlete's time on the course.

Changes since the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games

The format of the progressing and pairing system has changed.

Competition Format

Head to Head Canoe Sprint is an individual event on a circuit course (like the shape of a laying 8) of approximately 420m. The athletes compete in pairing format described in the Progressing system. The course for each athlete consists of 2 x 80m, 1 x 160 straight phases and two turns; one clockwise the other is anti-clockwise. Two athletes start in the same time at the same starting line but to different directions. The start and finish are in the same line. The layout of the course provides two equal travelling parts and distance for each athlete and marked with well visible buoys and separation buoy-line between the 2 sides. The athlete finished the race when completed properly the course and his/her boat's bow reached the finishing line. The progressing bases on time or winning a race depending on the phase of the competition. Details are under the Progressing System. Each Event contains different phases of racing from the Qualification Heat to the Gold Medal Final. The progressing system depends on the entered number of athletes to each event.

The Head to Head Canoe Obstacle Canoe Slalom is an individual event on two parallel and similar courses. The athletes compete in pairing format described in the Progressing system. The courses are of approximately 120m in length. The length of the courses in one direction is about 60m with four pairs of buoys on each course. Two athletes start in the same time from launching slides on their course. The start and finish are in the same line. The layout of the course provides two equal distance and form for each athlete and marked with well visible red and green numbered buoys and separation buoy-line between the 2 courses. The athlete finished the race when completed properly the course and his/her boat's bow reached the finishing line. The progressing bases on time or winning a race depending on the phase of the competition. Details are under the Progressing System. Each Event contains different phases of racing from the Qualification Heat to the Gold Medal Final. The progressing system depends on the entered number of athletes to each event.

“Chat with Champions” are taking place in the Nanjing Youth Olympic Village .
The first three Athlete Role Models in attendance were French judo athlete Lucie Decosse, Australian swimmer Patrick Murphy and Canadian rugby player Heather Moyse.

Chat with Champions offers a communication platform whereby young athletes can meet the champions for face-to-face interactions, discuss with them on sport career and plan for life after sport. It also represents an opportunity for young athletes to learn from the world champions.

The site for Chat with Champions can hold 400 people. At every session there is a 30 minutes for questions, with simultaneous interpretation in Chinese, English, French, Spanish, Arabic and Russian to guarantee smooth communication.
