The Universiade gives an opportunity to compete for Olympic licenses

The flag of Belarus was raised in the student village of the 30th Summer Universiade. It is symbolic that the event coincided with the Independence Day of the Republic of Belarus! The largest student sports games will start on July 3 in Naples (Italy).

Belarusian athletes will take part in 8 sports: rhythmic gymnastics, artistic gymnastics, athletics, tennis, fencing, swimming, judo, taekwondo.
 
 
 
The athletes have started their first training sessions. The fencers’ training process and the competition will be held in Salerno at the Centro Universitario Sportivo CUS Salerno. 
 “The conditions in which we have to work correspond to the level of the Universiade” - the head of the delegation, Director of the Republican Center of Physical Education and Sports for Pupils and Students Stryhelski Vitali said. “For the first time in the history the student village is located on two cruise ships. In Naples, it was not possible to organize a student village of a closed type, the Organizing Committee offered such a non-standard and, as practice shows, quite convenient accommodation option. There is a gym, a swimming pool, a restaurant complex”.
45 athletes represent Belarus at these prestigious competitions, almost all of them are members of the national teams in sports. And although the Universiade is a great starting opportunity for each of the athletes to make a name for themselves at the international level, this year swimmers were in a privileged position – student swimming competitions give an opportunity to compete for Olympic licenses in Tokyo 2020!
“Today's qualification standards are the level of the podium at the 2012 Olympic Games in London” Olga Iaskevitch said, a senior coach of the Republican center for Olympic training in aquatics. “The bar is very high, but we brought a very strong team to Naples, everything will be decided in tenths of a second”.
 The FISU Organizing Committee notes that the format of the world student competitions has undergone significant changes. It is as close as possible to the format of the Olympic Games.
