Universiade, the world university games have currently grown in importance in the world of sport. We all experience that, regrettably, sport has been divided between different financial and political aspects. However, Universiade is one of the few multi-sports events, which has succeeded in preserving the traditional values of sport. According to Dr Jenő Kamuti, CIFP President Universiades have an enormous task in educating young people considering that the athletes competing today will become the professors of tomorrow with a power of influence over the future generations. Nevertheless, as long as FISU and its flagship event, the Universiade are capable of upholding and promoting the ideal of sport, the future of our societies is secured.
