The 2018 London Ontario Summer Games mark the fourth time this event has been hosted in London, with the most recent being 2004. Along with the Ontario Summer Games, London has also played host to the Canada Summer Games in 2001, Ontario Winter Games most recently in 2005, and the Special Olympics Canada Summer Games back in 2010.
Provincial level athletes from ages 12 to 18 qualify through a regional selection process conducted by the Provincial Sport Organizations (PSOs). The Games take place every two years and are awarded through a bidding process.
For many young athletes, the Ontario Summer Games is the highpoint of their sporting career, while for others the Games are a stepping stone for the Pan Am Games or even the Olympics.
