The 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) will be held Jan 19 – Feb 1, 2024, in Gangwon, South Korea. It is an international multi-sport event organized by the International Olympic Committee in which the games are held every four years. The games are staggered summer and winter events consistent with the current Olympic Games format, though in reverse order with Winter Games held in leap years instead of Summer Games.
In the four individual events, the competing athletes will skate in both a short program (or rhythm dance) and a free skate (or free dance). Due to the number of athletes competing, there will be no cut and all athletes will skate in both segments, receiving scores based on their technical elements (TES) and their presentation and performance (PCS).
Meanwhile, the team event will feature only a maximum of eight teams; not all four individual segments need to be skated. Only the best three scores will count, meaning teams with entrants in only three of the four individual events are able to qualify for the team event. No short program (or rhythm dance) will take place, with only the long programs being skated. Points will be awarded on a sliding scale per segment, with eight points for the top team going down to one point. The team with the most points from their three best segments will win the event.
