https://www.2017.taipei/home Since it's only a couple of weeks to go, I felt we should start a thread already about the upcoming Universiade. This is the biggest sport event to be held ever in Taiwan aka Chinese Taipei (they don't get to host too much things due to their troublesome diplomatic situation so this might be interesting to watch) Venues Taipei Municipal Stadium (25.000) - Athletics - Opening and Closing Ceremonies National Taiwan Sport University Arena - Swimming/Waterpolo Taipei Arena - Basketball University of Taipei Gymnasium - Basketball Taipei Heping Basketball Gymnasium - Basketball University of Taipei Shi-shin Hall - Pool Diving Taipei NangNang Exhibition Hall - Fencing Hsinchu Stadium - Football Taoyuan Arena - Taekwondo National Taiwan University Sport Center - Volleyball Taipei Tennis Centre - Tennis Athletes Village Universiade Torch Torch Relay Route Some pics of the Torch relay so far in Taipei Medals Mascot - Bravo, a Formosan Black Bear
Its going to start on 8 days so I decided to open a thread dedicated to the upcoming event. Logo and Mascot of the games (they reused the wing idea of Incheon though now forming the U for Universiade) Poster The Medals Athletes Village Torch relay undergoing, the relay began at Mudeung National Park on a ceremony Some sneak peaks of the stage. Sadly, it seems the ceremony will go back to the small, simplistic style of the ceremonies before Shenzhen 2011 (no offense but koreans seem to be very stingy when doing ceremonies. All of them except for the 2002 WC and the Seoul olympics felt halfassed. I seriously hope they don't do this in Pyeongchang) http://www.gwangju2015.com/gwangju-universiade-opening-ceremony-where-korean-tradition-meets-pop-culture-3/?c_page=1&brd_sbox_type=&brd_sbox_txt=&brd_cat=news
Seems that Universiades are in trouble again. FISU took away 2013 Winter Universiades to Maribor, Slovenia, and it's looking for another host city/country. It's because crisis: slovenian government decided not to economically sustain the project anymore. http://www.fisu.net/...?idProduit=2157 Do you think Universiade will survive? Does this sporting event still have sense? Or still have sense bi-annually?
