Southwest University like most universities in China had a sports competition this weekend. The various colleges freshman competed against each other, my students represented the college of international studies. We are one of the largest colleges in the university but maybe not the most athletic. Classes were canceled on Friday for the opening ceremony and day 1 on the competition. Fun was had by all…well most.
Now some photos from the competitions. These are my freshman students either English majors or English teaching majors.
I was talking to Allen about his races and Rata decided to join us. My college has so few boys, I think 30 freshen boys they all had to compete

Now some from the closing ceremony
Universities in China view sports differently than America. While physical education classes are required many of my students do not like sports. Most are women who don’t like going outside let alone competing in sports. I’m proud of all those who competed and tried their bests.
