Mixed-NOCs at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics

Teams made up of athletes representing different National Olympic Committees (NOCs), called mixed-NOCs teams, participated in the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics. These teams participated in either events composed entirely of mixed-NOCs teams, or in events which saw the participation of mixed-NOCs teams and non-mixed-NOCs teams. When a mixed-NOCs team won a medal, the Olympic flag was raised rather than a national flag; if a mixed-NOCs team won gold, the Olympic anthem would be played instead of national anthems. A total of 17 events with Mixed NOCs were held.

BackgroundEdit

The concept of mixed-NOCs was introduced in the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics, in which athletes from different nations would compete in the same team, often representing their continent. This is in contrast to the Mixed team (IOC code: ZZX) found at early senior Olympic Games.

Medal summaryEdit

The following medal summary lists all nations whose athletes won a medal while competing for a mixed-NOCs team. If there is more than one athlete from the same nation on a medal-winning team, only one medal of that colour is credited. The summary shows how many events at which a nation had an athlete in a medal-winning mixed-NOCs team.

GolfEdit

Initially golf was to not have mixed NOC entrants, however, two teams of mixed nations were created due to not having a partner from their own nation.

JudoEdit

13 teams were created and named after judo legends. Teams of 7 or 8 athletes were made by categorizing all athletes by weight and drawing one athlete from each weight group. Other considerations in the draw were medalists were to be evenly separated among all teams and no two athletes from the same nation were on the same team.[6][7]
