Alaska Native Youth Olympics moves to bigger venue

The growing popularity of the Native Youth Olympics has forced the event to move to a bigger venue in Anchorage, Alaska.

Just two years ago, 300 athletes from across the state competed. This year, there are 480 Native youth signed up for events like the stick pull, the Alaskan high kick and the seal hop. More and more non-Natives are getting into the act too.

The Cook Inlet Tribal Council sponsors the NYO. The games started yesterday and will continue today and tomorrow.
