Chinese International Students Volunteering for Chengdu 2021 FISU Games Look Beyond the Games


Chinese international students are sharing their experiences of volunteering for the Chengdu 2021 FISU World University Games on social media with joy.


The Chengdu 2021 FISU Games has attracted many youth volunteers to devote themselves to the upcoming sports event. It is lucky to be a part of the volunteer team as they have learned a lot through volunteering, youth volunteers said.


Luo Yangdanlin, a Chengdu local with study experience in the US and the ROK, is an international referee for speed roller skating matches. Now she is working at the Department of Marketing and Activity Planning to assist with sponsor-related affairs and other routine tasks. "How can I not support such a spectacular sports event held in my hometown?" Luo said.

"I thought it was easy to host an event, but since I got involved, I’ve come to realise there're countless affairs just in the preparation period. When I see all units work together for the same goal, my passion is ignited," she added.


Zhang Yumin, who graduated from the University of Sheffield in the UK, has been responsible for receiving and delivering documents and other comprehensive tasks at the Department of Marketing and Activity Planning.


Apart from improved professionalism and communication skills, according to Zhang, he had developed "a strong sense of belonging in the volunteer team for the Chengdu 2021 FISU Games".

Wang Yaqi, who studied at the University of California at Riverside in the US, is a volunteer at the Department of Sports and Venue Operation.


"I've volunteered for four international sports events and I love sports, so I want to do something for the Chengdu 2021 FISU Games before studying abroad again," she said. "In voluntary service, I've gained professional knowledge and skills, made like-minded friends, and more importantly, developed a strong interest in sports management, which has helped me create a clearer plan for the future."


Wu Anyu, another Chengdu local who studied at the Northern University of Malaysia and the University of Nottingham Malaysia, has volunteered to serve technical officials.



"Chengdu is an inclusive city boasting a long history and profound culture, great enthusiasm for sports, and various delicacies. We should help more people get to know and walk into Chengdu, and thus let the world feel the warmth of Chengdu," according to Wu.


The Chengdu 2021 FISU Games will take place from 26 June to 7 July. Overseas returnees are volunteering for this grand event with full passion, making every effort to show the world the beauty of the Games, of the city and of their youth.
