20 winners have been selected for the #USportChallenge

22 December 2021

On 23 November 2021, the Organising Committee (OC) of Chengdu 2021 launched the #USportChallenge short video contest to encourage everyone to share their sport activities and how sport make them feel better. The top 10 videos voted by the public and an additional 10 videos selected by FISU and the Chengdu 2021 FISU Games Executive Committee were designated as winners of the challenge to win tickets or merchandise of the Chengdu 2021 FISU Games held on 26 June – 7 July 2022.


More than 50’000 videos were submitted to the contest gathering approximately 12 million votes from the public and a spectacular 1 billion global views on the videos. The #USportChallenge ended on 11 December 2021 and 20 winning videos have been selected. Check out the winning videos on Chengdu’s website.


The OC of Chengdu 2021 also took the opportunity to express their support to the FISU Student Ambassador Aupal Emmanuel, 21 years old from Uganda who had to overcome the limited access to facilities and find someone to record him in order to submit his video. The team was moved by his determination and enthusiasm and decided to highlight Aupel Emmanuel in an online article.


Yesterday, Chengdu 2021 created a video showcasing some of the submitted videos and shared it on their social medias. Overall, this challenge showed the strong and united spirit of the global university sports movement, and, despite the recent challenges, sport remains one of the best ways to stay positive and maintain a healthy body and mind.


We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those who participated in this global challenge. It is this, among many other things, that create the soul of the university sports movement. We are all part of a global community in which every person shines through his true colours. Stay tuned for more as the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games draw closer!
