2011 SU Update: Universiade Flame lit in Qsinghua University

 5 torch bearers from the 5 continents


BEIJING - The Universiade flame was kindled on Monday April 25th, at the prestigious Tsinghua University in Beijing.

The southern Chinese city of Shenzhen will host the 26th Summer Universiade from August 12th to 23rd.

A torch relay will be held in Peking University on May 4th, the date to start the 100-day countdown to the Games.

The torch will be carried through Shenzhen University on May 15th and will be relayed five days later in a cluster of universities in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong Province that encompasses Shenzhen.

A two-day final relay will be run in the host city before the Games officially open on August 12th, with the first day relay mostly featuring local residents and the second day international participants.

The Shenzhen Universiade is expected to attract 12,000 to 13,000 participants from over 180 countries and regions.
