To celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival, a fun sports game was held on 15 September in Chengdu's Dong'an Lake Sports Park, one of the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games venues.
Nearly 200 Chinese and foreign participants attended this game entitled "Home in Chengdu—Let's Play Sports" to celebrate the traditional Chinese festival while learning more about the Chengdu 2021 FISU Games, which will be held from 26 June to 7 July next year.
After warm-up exercises, four team games of "Shuttle Relay", "Multiplayer Juggling", "On Land Dragon-Boat Race", and "Rolling Ball" were held first. The guests were divided into four teams for a fierce but friendly competition.
Badminton Games and Table Tennis Games were followed.
The Mid-Autumn Festival symbolizes family reunion, and may locals and foreigners in Chengdu will have fun together at this time of year.
Also, many international friends shared their stories about Chengdu.
Micheal, a representative of foreign talent, has been living in the city for nine years. "I would definitely want to come back and watch it," said he when talking about the Chengdu 2021 FISU Games.
"The development of Chengdu is being quite fast, quite rapid. But I would say, from the very beginning for me coming to Chengdu, the people are always very welcoming," Micheal added.
