From baseball to wrestling and lots of sports in between, these young athletes have all qualified to meet the 'best of the best' by excelling in local & regional events before being invited to "go for the gold" at the Junior Olympics.

The 17,000 + athletes are expected to be accompanied by an additional 20,000 proud moms & dads as well as other family members, trainers, coaches, and support staff.

Besides showcasing our city in a very favorable light, the Junior Olympics is also bringing some cash to town.

Total projected economic impact for the Knoxville area during the events is over 30 million dollars in hotels, meals, sightseeing, souveniers, and other local buying.

Knoxville has also hosted the games in 1968, 1970, 1993 and 2002 so this will be our fifth experience with this group.

The City of Knoxville's website has information about free parking, housing, offical merchandise, and some other useful information for athletes and fans alike.
