FISU gives 2016 University Worlds to Mexico


The FISU Executive Committee, at its meeting in Brussels, on November 9th 2013, attributed the organisation of the 5th World University Championships 2016 to Mexico.

Although the event is officially attributed to the Mexican Student Sport Organisation, the Mexican Weightlifting Federation and its President Mr. Alvarado Rosalio del Angel must be congratulated also for the initiative and the contribution to this successful bid. After 2008 Komotini (GRE), 2010 Taichung (TPE), 2012 Eilat (ISR) and 2014 Chiangmai (THA), this will be the first World University Weightlifting Championships under FISU to be organised in Pan-America.

The Championships will take place in the beautiful city of Monterrey.
