This article investigates the organisational identity of the 2016 Lillehammer Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee (LYOGOC). Using organisational identity theory, the authors scrutinised how the youth focus of the winter edition of the Youth Olympic Games and the institutional environment of the International Olympic Committee shaped LYOGOC’s identity. They conducted an interview with five leaders in a focus group after the games, as well as observations and interviews before, during, and after the Games.
