NUSF of Uruguay publishes a Book



MONTEVIDEO - The League of University Sport of Uruguay (LUD) marked on 16 April 2015 the publication of the book "Among Books and Sports" written by Hugo Viglietti by inviting sport and academic authorities to a presentation at the Football Museum.

This book on international university sport comes as a joint venture between LUD and the Brazilian Confederation of University Sport (CBDU). It was co-financed by FISU through its support scheme for NUSF projects.

The publication includes fictional narrative of true stories about university sport in the world, aimed at promoting the values of sport among young people. With editions in three languages and foreword by FISU President Claude-Louis Gallien, the Spanish/English edition of the book was presented in Montevideo (URU) by former President of the Republic, Mr Julio María Sanguinetti, at an event which was also attended by Minister of Sport, Mrs Liliam Kechichián.

The President of the LUD, Mr Julio Jakob, highlighted in his speech the role of FISU promoting values for the youth, through competition among students. Former President Sanguinetti and Sports Minister agreed to commend the valuable contribution of the book and noted that it brings together stories from different sports and countries but all with the common contribution of the benefits of sport for students.
