China's National Student Games have taken time to celebrate today's International Day of University Sport.
The International University Sports Federation (FISU) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation worked together on the idea of holding the special day two years ago.
It is hoped the event will encourage students to practice sports on or off campus.
FISU's mission is to inspire the University Sport Movement on a global scale and to promote health and well-being through sports and physical activities of all levels.
This philosophy and mission was fully passed to schools and universities which competed in the Games in China, and from there to the students.
The Federation of University Sports of China has vowed to "seek opportunities to promote this special day and pass the concept to more and more Chinese people in the sporting world".
The 13th edition of the National Students Games of China took place Hangzhou with 5,966 athletes competing in 10 sports for 987 medals.
FISU President Oleg Matytsin has called for people to remember the true meaning and value of sport today.
Matytsin expressed his view that taking part in sport could help unite and educate young people, as well as offering the opportunity to make friends.
The day has been given the motto "the campus goes to the city, the city meets with the campus".
Eurosport, which is FISU TV's broadcast partner, is covering the day.
FISU's main goal of focusing its efforts on the promotion of health and well-being through sports and physical activities was achieved when more than 8,500 people took part at University Sport Festivals in 2016.
