DURHAM, N.C. – Incoming freshman Nicolas Alvarez has been selected to represent his home country of Peru in the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics next month in Nanjing, China.

The Youth Olympic tennis competition is set for August 17-24 at The Tennis Academy of China within the Nanjing Sports Institute.

Alvarez qualified for the tournament based on June’s International Tennis Federation Junior World Rankings. He will be one of just two male players from Peru competing in the event, taking part in the 32-player singles draw and teaming with fellow countryman Juan Jose Rosas in the boys’ doubles draw.

The top three finishers in each event will receive a gold medal, silver medal and bronze medal, respectively.

The tennis competition begins in Nanjing Sunday, Aug. 17 with the first round of the boys’ singles and girls’ doubles events.

Alvarez has appeared in a number of junior international tournaments this summer leading up to the Youth Olympics. The Blue Devil signee competed in the singles and doubles draw at the Roland Garros Junior French Championships as well as at the Nike International Roehampton and The Junior Championships, Wimbledon. He reached the doubles round of 16 at both Roland Garros and Wimbledon.
