FISU Executive Committee meets for September session

Lake Placid receives final confirmation 

29 September 2018, FISU Executive Committee Meeting

The ceremonial signing of the previously completed host city contract earlier this summer made for history in the making as the two-time Winter Olympics host will now hold the Universiade for a second time.

Lake Placid Mayor Craig H. Randall spoke after putting pen to paper.

“With the commitments in the contract, Lake Placid and the State of New York are prepared to bring the very finest Winter Universiade,” Mr. Randall said. “After 50 years, we welcome FISU back to the Adirondacks for the Winter Universiade. I am specially honored to be the person to say that.”
