Singapore Tourist Board (STB) has revealed it plans to expand its calendar of sporting events and infrastructure in the coming years to boost tourism to the city-state.
As well as staging the Youth Olympic Games in two weeks, the city will host a Formula 1 race in September and plans to open new sporting facilities in 2014.
