[ Issue 148 Page 3 ] Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 23:25:22 Wan Ju Kang Senior Staff Reporter soarhigh@kaist.ac.kr

Organized by the Daejeon International Center (DIC) and hosted by Daejeon Metropolitan City, the very first Daejeon Sports Day for International Students is to be held at the gym of KT Human Resources Development Center on October 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The organizers describe the event as the first annual sports competition for international students from Daejeon “to provide a chance for mutual communication and harmony among international students [...and] to promote local patriotism for Daejeon among international students and their understanding for Korean culture.”

International students sports days have previously been arranged at the national level and at the university level, but the upcoming one finds its significance in that it is the first one ever to be held citywide in Daejeon, where international students’ population density is one of the highest in the country. Students from 10 universities in Daejeon and Chungcheongnam- do will be participating in a number of events ranging from several inter- university competitive games, such as soccer, group rope jump, and tug of war, traditional sports experience, and cheerleading performance. Raffle events are scheduled to give away tablet PCs, cameras, vouchers, etc. to participating students. Along with competitive games, there will also be a special stage for a talent show.
