The recent Virtual Race of the FISU Student Ambassadors attracted 31 runners in 27 countries on four continents. They ran a total of 126,7 kilometers.
The winners of the 3-km race were Nduwimana Egide (Burundi, time: 8:54) and Kelly Vildek (Estonia, 15:12).
“I ran at night with the car lights, it was fantastic!,” said Nduwimana Egide. “Study and sport are like twins and sport looks like therapy for brain. I’m a middle- and long-distance runner. During secondary school, I won different trophies. Now, I thoroughly organize my training sessions and study time. I am looking forward to more exciting activities.”
