Some Terms about Universiade

What is the hotest topic recently? Yes! It is Shenzhen 26th Summer Universiade. Now let's go with the tide and pick up something precious among the white water. I collected some interesting English expressions about the Universiade. World University Games(世界大学生运动会), know as "Little Olympics", are organized by the International University Sports Federation(国际大学生体育联合会). Shenzhen 26th Summer Universiade (第26届世界大学生运动会)will be held from August 12th to August 22th in 2011. The main stadium is located in Longgang District, west of  the city(深圳市龙岗中心城西区). Emblem(会徽) "Happy U" consists of colored dots of varying size. Each dot is deemed as a logo element, the meaning of which is open to different interpretations. It tries to convey the message that the Universiade is a carnival gathering for university students from around the world.  U is rich in meanings. It may stand for "university", "you","union", "universe" or other words, or be taken as a graphical mark representing bays in the city, Dapeng Bay (大鹏湾)for example. U may be understood in six different ways, including a happy U, an open U, an inclusive U, a youthful U, a cosmopolitan U and a futuristic U(欢乐的 U、开放的 U、包容的 U、青春的 U、世界的 U、未来的 U). Mascot(吉祥物) "UU" is given a variety of cute facial expressions: joyous, sweet and somewhat playful. There trendy and cheerful images are designed to embody the great vitality and uplifting spirit typical of the young people, expressing the expectation of the host city for Universiade.
