2022 WORLD GAMES
2022 年世界运动会

The 11th World Games opened in Birmingham, Alabama, on July 7th, 2022, with more than 3600 competitors from 100 countries and regions participating in 36 events, including athletes from our own college. As an international sports competition event, the World Games is rivaled only by the Olympic Games in scope and is sometimes even called the “Secondary Olympic Games.” First held in 1981 and repeated once every four years, its events are mainly non-Olympic and include the disciplines of Wushu and Taichi.

The Canadian national team was led by head coach Fang Wu and consisted of four athletes, including three from our college. Winnie Cai, Jason Chen-Leung, and Murray Cheung took part in the Jianshu-Qiangshu All-Around, Taijiquan-Taijijian All-Around, and Changquan categories, winning two medals and pushing Canada to seventh place overall on the country leaderboard. These medals were two of the 15 total medals that the Canadian delegation to the World Games received. Winnie Cai won a silver medal in the Women’s Jianshu and Qiangshu All-Around competition, while Jason Chen-Leung won a bronze medal in the Men’s Jianshu and Qiangshu All-Around competition. Congratulations!

With the 12th World Games set to commence in Chengdu, China from August 7th to 17th, 2025, let’s continue cheering on our college’s athletes. We wish them luck and hope they will achieve even greater heights on the international stage!
