Util­ity of the sports fa­cil­i­ties af­ter MWG

Changjiang Weekly - - 2019 MILITARY WORLD GAMES -

The sports fa­cil­i­ties will be used in three ways when the Mil­i­tary World Games (MWG) is over: for other high-level events, for teach­ing and re­search, and for mass fit­ness ac­tiv­i­ties.

For ex­am­ple, the Wuhan Busi­ness Univer­sity eques­trian court, the man­age­ment of which will be trans­ferred to a pro­fes­sional com­pany in the name of a sports park af­ter MWG, will be open to the pub­lic for learn­ing about and watch­ing eques­trian sports. This is in ad­di­tion to func­tion­ing as a base for teach­ing, re­search and sports events.

Ac­cord­ing to the Di­rec­tor of the Fa­cil­ity Depart­ment of the MWG Ex­ec­u­tive Com­mit­tee, util­ity has al­ways been part of the plan for most of the sports fa­cil­i­ties un­der con­struc­tion. For ex­am­ple, she said the parachut­ing field at Han­nan Gen­eral Air­port was used to hold the World Fly-in Expo last year. The MWG me­dia cen­ter will be trans­formed into an ice-sports area, and the Guo­fang (Na­tional De­fense) Archery Range in Caid­ian is a sup­ple­ment to the other pro­fes­sional-sports fa­cil­i­ties in Wuhan. "These world-class fa­cil­i­ties will host other high-level sport events in the fu­ture while pro­vid­ing world-class en­ter­tain­ment for sports lovers," the di­rec­tor said.
