LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — The Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games’ Organizing Committee today unveiled the official uniforms that will be worn by more than 1,800 volunteers during the January 12-22, 2023 multi-winter sports and educational event.
“We’re excited to partner with Karbon, an industry leader in technical apparel. These uniforms reflect the brand of the Games and allow the volunteers to easily stand out from the crowd,” said Adirondack Sports Council Executive Director Ashley Walden. “Volunteers are a vital part of the Games so it was extremely important to us that we provide a uniform that they are proud to wear.”
Peter Schure, VP of Teams and Resorts added, “It’s our privilege and honor to be chosen as the apparel partner for the Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games. In designing the volunteer uniforms, our mandate was to deliver exceptional product that will perform in all weather conditions and provide a lasting legacy in the Lake Placid area.”
With Karbon’s focus on sustainability through durability, the uniforms being manufactured also incorporate recycled fabrics and insulations in certain items. The complementary items include a puffy insulated jacket, full-zip fleece, quarter-zip t-neck, hat and gloves.
“The choice to use a uniform made from recycled and sustainable materials was extremely important to the Organizing Committee. This is another example of our commitment to sustainability to the Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games,” added Walden. “Because of the design and durability, these garments will remain functional long after the Games.”
The FISU World University Games is expected to bring together more than 2,500 collegiate-athletes and delegates from 600 universities and 50 nations to Lake Placid and New York State’s North Country region. The athletes, ages 17-25, will compete in 12 sports and 86 events throughout Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, Wilmington, North Creek, Canton and Potsdam.
Volunteers are still needed to support the Games. Volunteer benefits include an official Games’ uniform, discounts on Karbon clothing, access to events and celebrations, food and beverages during shifts, an invitation to a post-Games party, and an official Lake Placid 2023 FISU World University Games Certificate of Recognition.
