2015-05-25

 

During the Assembly held at the SportAccord Convention in Sochi the International Wushu Federation (IWUF) and the Federation Internationale Du Sport Universitaire (FISU) signed a cooperation agreement, and both parties became partner federations. Both organizations will cooperate in the inaugural wushu competition of the 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade and World University Wushu Championships to further promote wushu development in university sports.

 

Some highlights of the agreement are a list of initiatives that FISU and IWUF will carry out together to:

 

a. Encourage the development of the practice of sport by all university students of both genders;
b. Further encourage the practice of women’s university sport;
c. Identify and implement synergies between the two Federations on the Field of Play;
d. Identify shared goals and objectives between FISU and IWUF;
e. Set up a joint educational initiatives to protect sport against the dangers of doping and violence;
f. Establish a training and assessment unit for ITOs; and
g. Promote sustainability, the concepts of fair-play and integrity, and join the fight against all forms of racism in sport.

 

All in all, wushu will enjoy a number of new benefits from this collaboration. One is that FISU will appoint a wushu technical delegate and will collaborate with IWUF organizing seminars and training for coaches, managers and ITOs at the time of FISU competitions. Another is that FISU will offer on its TV webpage (www.fisu.tv) live streaming and VOD content from wushu during the Universiade and World University Championships; IWUF will have access to this material to use for further wushu promotion. More details of the partnership and upcoming wushu FISU events will be available on the IWUF website in the near future.
