SZ to host a ‘green’ Universiade: Xu
2011-July-25 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THERE will be no fireworks or other grand displays traditionally associated with major sporting events at Shenzhen Universiade which aims to be a “green” competition.

At a news conference Friday in Beijing organized by the State Council Information Office, Shenzhen Mayor Xu Qin, vice president and secretary general of Shenzhen Universiade organizing committee, said various measures had been taken to ensure the Universiade would be environmentally-friendly.

The opening ceremony would emphasize the theme of “the return of sports.”

“There will be no fireworks and no stars or celebrities will appear at the opening ceremony,” Xu said. He said the stage for the opening ceremony is made of recycled plastic bottles and 65 percent of the event’s venues have been remodeled or been based on existing facilities to save costs and reduce any environmental impact.

The Athletes’ Village and Universiade Center in Longgang feature new energy-saving technology and materials, Xu said.

This environmentally-friendly approach would be utilized not only in the Universiade, but also in the city of Shenzhen itself. Xu said the government would put 2,011 alternative-energy vehicles on city roads during the 12-day event.

A record 24 sports and 306 events will be held at 41 venues during Aug. 12-23.

There were 147 countries and regions, and 11,310 people registered for the Universiade by 5 p.m. Thursday, including 7,587 athletes and 3,723 retinue officials, Xu said.

A rehearsal of the opening ceremony was held in Shenzhen on Saturday, the 20-day countdown for the international university games.

South China metropolis benefits from international games

SHENZHEN, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- For 26-year-old Jiang Huali, a typical morning used to involve waking up at 6 a.m. and spending more than two hours riding buses to her office in downtown Shenzhen.

These days, Jiang makes it to work in just an hour, courtesy of one of several new subway lines that have been built in the south China city as it prepares for the upcoming 2011 Universiade.

Jiang is just one of more than 10 million Shenzhen residents who have already benefited from the renovations and developments that the city has undertaken in preparation for the 12-day sports event, which will open on Aug. 12.

Shenzhen won the right to host the 26th Universiade in 2007. The city immediately began working to improve its infrastructure, upgrading and remodeling 280 main roads and spending 75 billion yuan (11.7 billion U.S. dollars) to build five subway lines with a total length of 156 km. All five of the subway lines opened to the public in June this year.

"Large events create pressure to spur city leaders to speed up infrastructure construction and to modify and perfect their cities," said Wang Yukai, a professor at the Chinese Academy of Governance.

Wang said that hosing international events can have a long-lasting influence on a host city's future development.

Chinese cities are taking advantage of opportunities to host such events, seeking to boost their influence, upgrade infrastructure and improve their residents' quality of life.

Beijing made significant changes to its infrastructure before hosting the 2008 Olympic Games. It was ranked the following year as a "world capital of the future" by Forbes, an American publishing and media company. Shanghai's hosting of the 2010 World Expo allowed the city to make similar developmental strides.

Guangzhou, a large city in south China's Guangdong Province, virtually remade itself in preparation for hosting last year's Asian Games. The city rolled out 910 urban improvement projects, including renovating buildings, cleaning up rivers and expanding its subway system.

Shenzhen is just the latest Chinese city to join the fray. The city has given facelifts to many of its older buildings, fortified community-based security facilities and renovated 1,600 of its shabby "urban villages," which are home to many lower-income city dwellers.

"This area has changed. The houses have been repainted and decorated, streets have been repaved. More and more people are shopping here," said Wang Yanli, a tea vendor living in the city's Xiashiwei urban community.

Measures have been taken to ensure that the Universiade will be environmentally friendly, Xu Qin, vice president and secretary-general of the event's organizing committee, said at a press conference in July.

Xu, who is also the mayor of Shenzhen, said 65 percent of the event's venues have been remodeled or based on existing facilities in order to save costs and reduce the event's environmental impact.

The newly built Universiade Village and Universiade Center were constructed using energy-saving technologies and materials, Xu said.

This environmentally friendly approach will be utilized not only within the Universiade, but also in the city of Shenzhen itself.

Xu said the municipal government will put 2,011 alternative-energy vehicles on the city's streets during the event to promote the use of environmentally friendly vehicles.

The Shenzhen government is also taking the opportunity to narrow the gap between the city's ballooning population and its shortage of social, cultural and sports facilities.

Twenty-two new venues have been built for the event, mostly in the city's urban communities and universities. These facilities will be retained for use by local residents after the games are over.

The Universiade Village, home to more than 12,000 athletes and team officials, will be integrated into the Shenzhen Institute of Information Technology's campus after the event.

Many of the new venues are located in Longgang district, located in the outskirts of the city. According to local resident Chen Minying, the out-of-the-way district has transformed from being an "urban village" to being just another part of downtown Shenzhen - despite the fact that it is not even remotely close to the city's downtown area.

The region would not have developed nearly as quickly without the influence of the Universiade, Chen said.

Yang Haixian, a deputy of the National People's Congress of Shenzhen, said that the city government should continue to make efforts to develop the city and improve the lives of its citizens.

"The Universiade lasts just for 12 days, but the development of Shenzhen should be a long-term task," Yang said.

Universiades Kicks Off with Colorful Opening Ceremony Opened by the President of China

2011.08.13

Photo taken on Aug. 12, 2011 shows the opening ceremony of the 26th Summer Universiade in Shenzhen,(Xinhua/Yang Shiyao)

SHENZHEN – Friday, August 12th, the kick-off of the 26th Summer Universiade took place with the traditional Opening Ceremony. A third Universiade for China, after 2001 (Summer) in Beijing and 2009 (Winter) in Harbin. Therefore, the expectations were high as the Chinese are known to be masters in staging big shows. And once again the hosts did not disappoint. A dazzling and colorful show took place in front of 25,000 spectators giving the green light for 12 days of thrilling sport competitions between student-athletes in 24 sports.



The slogan 'Start Here' appears on the screen in the opening ceremony.(Xinhua/Yang Shiyao)

After a pre-ceremony warm-up with song and dance, it was time for the real thing. A brilliant flash of light illuminates the huge stage in the Shenzhen Bay Sports Centre ‘Spring Cocoon’, to depict an information highway running through the stadium as a vivid symbol of this Universiade, representing the information age.

The national flag of China enters in a sea of flowers and is followed by a marching band of university students. The crowd raises when the flag is hoisted while China’s national anthem is played.



1,000 beautiful girls holding flowers flow into a remote mist and gather a piece of a radiant stars river. On the ‘Gate of the World’, which is 26m high and 125m wide, performers harmoniously move back boards on the giant screen. Numerous drums salute the great era of reform and opening-up; the Chinese calculator, reminds the spectators of the glories of ancient Chinese civilization.



Then the giant screens shows a countdown and when this comes to an end, a giant representing the spirit of the Opening-up and Reform Era opens the ‘Gate of the World’ for the delegations to enter. Led by beautiful Chinese girls, the athletes walk along ‘Youth Avenue’. At the rostrum, they separate in two different directions and get seated in their designated sections.

Chinese President Hu Jingtao opens the GamesThe three high ranking officials of the Universiade, Mr. Wang Rong, Vice-President of the Organizing Committee, Mr. Yuan Guiren, President of the OC and Mr. Killian, outgoing FISU President deliver their speech from the middle of the arena while surrounded by bright colors. At the end of his speech, Mr. Killian invites the President of China, Mr. Hu Jingtao to declare the Universiade open.

The flying colorful silk and petals, the fireworks on the big screen – environment friendly - and a meteor shower marks the prelude of a carnival. Using the universal language of music and dance, university students take us to a passionate and energetic world.

Athlete's and Referee's OathThen the FISU flag finally arrives in the stadium. It is hoisted while the FISU anthem, the ‘Gaudeamus Igitur’ is played and everybody stands. The flag hoisting is followed by the oaths by the representatives of the athletes and referees.

More music is played and everybody is in awe when a violin player is lifted up high in the sky from the main rostrum. Acrobats appear on the stage giving a marvelous performance. Emerged in university campus atmosphere, piled-up books, colorful gene-links and models with knowledge-symbolized fashion clothes display a picture of ‘Book Mountain and Knowledge Sea’. The performers wearing baccalaureate gowns on the ‘Gate of the World’ remind people of their memory of anticipation to campus life.

The bicycle riders appear on the stage depicting the green road, stretching more than 2,000 miles in Shenzhen and Guangdong. And then the torch with the flame arrives. Five different torch bearers run a final lap around the stage. The last torch bearer is joined by four others, while all five of them represent the 5 continents, symbolizing unity. The five run through the ‘Gate of the World’ up to the five FISU stars and as they lit the stars, highway of fire finally lights the big cauldron with the Universiade flame. Let the Games begin!

It was a great honor forFISUto have the President of China open the Universiade. Besides Mr. Hu Jingtao, seven other heads of state were present at the Opening Ceremony, i.e. the Prime Minister ofHungary, the Prime Minister of Ethiopia, the President of Sri Lanka, the President of Fiji, the President of Bolivia, the President of Mozambique and the President of Tatarstan. They all met briefly with outgoing President George Killian.
