For this month’s Student Column we are still very much inspired by the European Universities Games that just concluded in Lodz. At the same time, we put additional focus on the #HeathlyLifestyle4All initiative, that encompasses three main pillars:
After a break due to Covid-19, the European Universities Games returned this year. European University Sports Association (EUSA), in cooperation with the local Organising Committee, lead by Lodz University of Technology, University Sports Association of Poland (AZS) and the City of Lodz, supported by key partners, prepared a memorable event, offering 20 sports, educational, social and cultural activities.
And with this final day, European Universities Games 2022 in Lodz have come to an end. It has been 15 eventful days full of sports, competition, fair play, team spirit and individual efforts to show what the athletes have been training for.
Even though rowing is not one of the sports featured at the European Universities Games in Lodz, the presence of key stakeholders at the event was used for two working meetings in preparation of the European Universities Rowing Championship, which will be hosted in September in Istanbul, Turkey.
European University Sports Association (EUSA) is a signatory of the HealthlyLifestyle4All pledge, promoting healthy lifestyles for all, across generations and social groups, by linking sport and active lifestyles with health, food and other policies. We are happy and proud to be present and to have been carrying out the campaign initiatives also during the European Universities Games 2022 in Lodz.
One of the 7 remaining sports present on the schedule of the European Universities Games 2022, swimming had its closure today. Tomorrow the 6 left, badminton, sport climbing, handball, basketball, karate and taekwondo are going to have their last day of competition.
