The Bahrain Olympic Committee (BOC) intends to include five disciplines and three events: medley relay for four-year-olds, hurdles toddle for three-year-olds while participating two-year-olds will cross a specially designed stretch of 15 meters in a freestyle race.
Other Olympic events will include a freestyle gymnastic moves contest, a free-kick competition in football, a basketball free-throw contest, and a weightlifting show.
The idea of hosting this baby Olympics was proposed by Abdulrahman Askar, heads Bahrain's Supreme Council for Youth and Sports and also the general secretary of BOC.
