Unlike previous years, the 14th Games adopted art performance rather than team gymnastics. All departments showed their most charming gestures reflecting their spirit. The art performance began from the exotic dance of Foreign Language department. The combination of passionate Paso Doble dancing and Hawaii Hula dancing, which featured changing formations and graceful dance, brought us a brand-new visual enjoyment. And the boys from Electromechanical Engineering Department dressed in military uniform, showed their manliness through the action of falling down, side slam, grappling as well as breaking the bricks. As the national flag rising, the scenery gives us a feeling of majesty. The department of Chinese performed a wonderful custom dance named ¡°Enjoying Youth¡±, which mixed Chinese traditional culture elements and the style is both tough and gentle. All students showed their best without fearless; their youth was like beautiful flowers blooming under sky. After 14 performances, the fervent sports game is beginning.
The athletes¡¯ passion cannot be blocked by hot weather. All students tried their best to make good performance. Needing 10 athletes to go all out, the 10 ¡Á 400-meter relay was a long process. With the signal of the judge, the players flew one by one like an arrow up on the runway, which made the audiences¡¯ blood boil exceedingly. The tug-of-war¡¯s players hold their breath, and each group was unwilling to give up. ¡°Come on, Come on¡±, the track was full of enthusiastic cheerleaders.
In the three-day event, four boys¡¯ sports games and one girl¡¯s sport game broke the records in Yuncheng University Games. During the sports meeting, all of the athletes worked tenaciously and courageously. And referees judged objectively.
