The UBOC has also gathered the best technicians and managers for each

and will of the Organizing Committee to guarantee the best competition environment to the students.


We would like to wish you and unforgettable experience and the very best success in the competitions to

Best regards,


George E. KILLIAN
FISU President




                                                                                  Technical Handbook- 2 -
1.2      Message from the President of the Organizing Committee



It is my honour and pleasure to welcome athletes, distinguished
international representatives and the entire FISU family to the Universiade
Bangkok 2007 during 8-18 August 2007. I am delighted to welcome all of
our international guests to Thailand on the auspicious occasion of the 80th
birthday anniversary of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.


As Chairman of the 24th Universiade Bangkok 2007 Organizing Committee,
I would like to take this opportunity to convey our thanks to the
International University Sports Federation (FISU) for their excellent
cooperation and support in assisting with the organization of the 24th
Universiade Bangkok 2007. I would also like to thank all countries and
nations for their participation in this event.


It is a privilege for Thailand to host this global university athletic competition. The government and people of
Thailand are committed to the promotion and development of sport and recreation for young people around
the world. This commitment derives from the recognition that sports can create man, and man can create
nations. To be sport champions requires continuous practice, high discipline and strong determination.
These are the skills critical for success in life. Sport also cultivates leadership, teamwork, a positive attitude
and a sense of fairness, significant qualities for leaders of tomorrow.


Sport also plays an important role as a diplomatic initiative to foster a sense of unity, cooperation and the
sharing values among people of different races, cultures and religion. All become one though sport.


In the world where we are frequently confronted by contradictory and irrational views, we need a good
means of communication and cooperation. The ideals of athletic cooperation can link people across borders
to act with a common goal and speak a common language. Solidarity, teamwork, and cooperation leading to
world harmony can be built through sport partnership. Sport heroes and heroines routinely act as envoys
performing significant and valuable missions of their nations.


I sincerely hope that the Universiade Bangkok 2007 will be a major event for those who love sport and enjoy
the spirit of sportsmanship. With all the generous support of and contribution from the FISU Executive
Committee and all delegations, I am confident that the 24th Universiade will be a success and a memorable
experience, and all expectation will be fulfilled.
