МThe youth version of the Olympics, the World Sport Games, or simply the Universiade has been the second global and representative international event in the world’s sports arena for more than 50 years.
The Universiade is the international sports competitions among students, holding under the aegis of the International University Sports Federation (FISU). The name „Universiade“ comes from the words „University“ and „Olympics“. Student competitions are held every two years, unlike the four-year Olympic events. Students from the age of 17 to 25 years and graduates who have received an academic degree or a diploma in the year preceding the competition are allowed to participate in competitions. The program of the Universiade includes compulsory (the list is approved by FISU prior to the start of the bidding campaign) and optional (additional) sports that the host country determines, provided that they meet all the requirements of the International University Sports Federation.
