KAZAN, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - The General Assembly of the International University Sports Federation (FISU) has praised Kazan for the high level of the organization of the World Student Games, FISU Vice President and President of the Russian Student Sports Union Oleg Matytsin told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“The General Assembly delegates visited the Universiade village and sports facilities. They had no claims to the organizational committee. On the contrary, they noted a high level of the organization of the Student Games, and the state support to the Kazan-2013 committee and to the development of student sports in the country,” he said.
According to Matytsin, the General Assembly discussed amendments to the charter and regulations of the international federation, first of all, to provisions concerning membership and the status of national federations.
“Presently, to be granted a FISU membership, the support of the National Olympic Committee and the government consent are needed. Despite the fact that a number of countries spoke against obligatory support of the national government, the General Assembly retained these requirements in force. It is needed to exclude any possible conflicting situations inside the country,” he explained.
The General Assembly of the International University Sports Federation ends its work on Thursday.
