It's only 6 days to the Chinese New Year of 2020... and getting closer to the World University Games Chengdu 2021!
Today, the World University Chengdu send new year wishes again...but this time from the sky! Three red helicopters painted with the mascot and logo of the World University Games landed at the construction site of Dong'an Lake Sports Park. The mascot of the Games, "Rongbao", went out to surprise the construction workers with new year’s wishes. As the venue for the opening ceremony of the World University Games, the main stadium of Dong'an Lake Sports Park will be the "window" for the world to get to know the Games and display Chengdu charm.
In order to finish the construction work on time, the workers stayed on the job while the spring festival is approaching, devoting full heart and energy to work. The Dong'an Lake site is in a busy working atmosphere when, "Rongbao" suddenly shows up, with a surprise from World University Games for all workers.
"Look! Rongbao is coming from a helicopter!" During the lunch break, three red helicopters painted with the mascot and logo of the World University Games hovered over the construction site of Dong'an Lake Sports Park. Then, one of the helicopters slowly landed at an open space near the parking lot, and our adorable Rongbao emerged with bags of gifts. Workers gathered delightedly to take photos with Rongbao, and Rongbao gave away "lucky bags" to everyone. In the lucky bags, the newly launched themed scratch lottery tickets of the Games are included.
The lottery tickets, which have up to RMB 100,000 jackpot, are designed in six different styles with different Rongbao images, representing the construction plan of Chengdu as "Three Cities and Three Capitals" (the city of cultural creativity, tourism and competition; the capital of gastronomy, music and exhibitions & conventions). These lottery tickets given by Rongbao bear the warm concern and good wishes from World University Games Chengdu. The construction team in Dong’an Lake Sports site has prepared something for Rongbao as well. They made a huge traditional Spring Festival couplet -- (meaning approximately in English) "Good Luck in Spring Festival, Have Great Fun in Chengdu" to welcome the team of World University Games and the tourists around the world." "Thank Rongbao for bringing us good luck!", a worker who won 20 RMB of the lottery ticket he got took a photo with Rongbao excitedly, and said, "Hope everyone can enjoy this happiness of good luck during the World University Games".
