Rogge says Youth Olympics to have better athletes
Better athletes will be coming to the next Youth Olympics, IOC president Jacques Rogge said Thursday.

The United States won only four gold medals, and U.S. Olympic Committee chief executive Scott Blackmun said earlier this week that scheduling conflicts had kept some top American athletes from competing in Singapore.
