Lausanne (Switzerland) May 6 : International University Sports Federation (FISU) on Friday announced its decision to postpone the World University Games until 2023. The FISU Games had initially been scheduled for the summer of 2021, but were rescheduled to start in June 2022, following the postponement of the Tokyo Olympics. “The decision to reschedule Chengdu 2021 is not one that was made easily, but it is the right decision for university athletes. Their welfare is always our number one priority. Continued uncertainty over conditions has made rescheduling the sensible choice – a number of National University Sports Federations had already changed their plans,” said Acting FISU President Leonz Eder.
