FISU World University Games Flame Relay

 

The FISU World University Games Frame Relay was the ceremonial prelude to the upcoming Winter Universiade in the heart of Siberia -- and is sure to be among the most spectacular and large-scale events held in the lead-up to the world's premiere winter university sports event. 

 

The ignition of the FISU Flame begins on the University of Turin campus in Torino, Italy — the birthplace of the modern FISU World University Game — and travels to previous event host cities before beginning the domestic part of the relay. Following the international part of the FISU World University Games Flame Relay, the national route weaves its way across the host country visiting cities chosen for their renowned universities and large economic, sporting and cultural significance.

 

To light the flame of thousands of hearts is a notable team effort; 665 flame bearers carried the fire for 164 days through four countries to bring the spirit of university sports from its sporting roots to its future. Torchbearers carried the flame all the way from Torino to Krasnoyarsk, lighting the Universiade Cauldron as the capstone to what was a stunning opening ceremony along the banks of the mighty Yenisei River.

"Symbolising unity and friendship among students all over the world, the FISU World University Games Flame Realy is a great reminder of how far the university sports movement has already travelled and also provokes thought about the distance we have yet to go," FISU President Oleg Matytsin said. "Just as student populations are regularly renewed, we start the Universiade Flame journey again, knowing that our mission of positively influencing the leaders of tomorrow."

 

Follow the FISU Flame as its carried from city to ski hill, a passing reminder to the power of sport for society and citizens alike.
