According to International News Thailand is set to become the latest country to enter the fray for hosting the 2026 Youth Olympics. India, Russia and Colombia are already vying to host the event and according to reports in the Thai media, Thailand hopes to launch a joint candidacy from Bangkok and Chonburi.

Kongsak Yodmanee, Governor of the Sports Authority of Thailand, said they plan to send their intention to bid to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) within the next week, according to Thai newspaper Daily News.


Yodmanee further said that the bid will be done on an urgent basis so that Thailand can “catch up with India.” Indian Olympic Association (IOA) President Narinder Batra had said earlier that India will increase its push for hosting the 2026 Games after the ongoing freeze in the sporting calendar due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is yet to announce when they will reveal who gets the hosting rights for the 2026 Youth Games. Hosting rights are normally provided about five years before the event which means that a decision could come as early as as 2021. (IANS)

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount.
