Fair Play is also officially represented during the sport event of the International University Sports Federation (FISU): the pavilion of the International Fair Play Committee (CIFP) was stormed by the visitors already on the first day.  Athletes, coaches, sport leaders and volunteers can have the opportunity to get to know the history of the CIFP and the role models, they can learn fair play values through interesting short films and a unique brochure. The young athletes can collect special fair play pins as a nice memory from the University Games.

 

Dr. Jeno Kamuti, President of the CIFP said: “I was overwhelmed by the positive welcome of the FISU family. The local organisers do an excellent and professional job – based on my personal experience I can tell that this is one of the best Winter Universiade and it is a privilege for the CIFP that we can spread the fair play spirit among the young generation. It is already a tradition thanks to our strong and fruitful cooperation with FISU.

Mr. Kamuti added: “The Opening Ceremony was a spectacular show and it was a great honour that the 29th Winter Universiade was declared open by Russian President Vladimir Putin. Furthermore, I was proud and moved by experiencing that FISU President Oleg Matytsin and IOC President Thomas Bach both emphasized the importance of the spirit of fair play in their speeches.” 

 

The international multi-sports event for university athletes, the 29th Winter Universiade will be hosted between 2 and 12 March in Krasnoyarsk, Russia.
