Sports are an important way for young people to grow up healthily and improve their overall quality of life. How will Sichuan province use the Universiade as an opportunity to promote the healthy development of young people and sports in the province? Thank you.

Zheng Bei: 

This is a very good question. The upcoming 31st FISU World University Games will be the first large-scale international sports event to be held in western China. Perhaps most importantly, it presents a significant opportunity to encourage Sichuan youth to participate in sports and promote their all-round and healthy growth. With this objective in mind, we have prioritized the following tasks:

First, we have actively created a strong sports atmosphere. We have extensively organized a series of sports activities such as basketball, volleyball, table tennis and sports exchange activities among the youth in Sichuan province and Chongqing municipality, aiming to create a unique event IP so that more young people can enjoy the fun of physical exercise, improve their health and exercise their willpower. We have also organized college volunteers to travel to different parts of the province to conduct sports training activities and encourage more young people to love sports. This is an important task we have undertaken.

Second, we have comprehensively deepened the integration of sports and education. We have organized professional athletes to participate in sports classes in various schools, encouraged more outstanding retired athletes to serve as school sports coaches, and promote Universiade sports on campuses to enhance young people's enthusiasm for participating in sports. The "Gongga Cup" Youth Campus Sports League has been held in our province for three consecutive years. We aim to promote "frequent training" through "regular competition," which will enhance students' interest in improving their sports skills.

Third, we have steadily moved forward with opening the venues of the Universiade to the public and have taken actions to benefit the people. Just now, Mr. Wang said in his introduction that the venues and facilities of the Universiade have been open to the public for free or at a low cost. By doing so, we have brought more campus-based sporting events, PE classes, and daily training to these venues, enabling young people to appreciate the charm of Universiade culture and inspiring their vitality and enthusiasm for sports. Thank you.
