HUST’s 2020 sports meeting took place on November 6th and 7th at central playground. Dozens of faculties and departments competed in 19 events resulting in the setting of several new records. Our correspondents were on the scene and captured the highlights.
Peng Zhicong from the School of Public Administration participated to try and break his senior's record, and received first place in the 110-meter-hurdles.
Xie Weixiang, a sophomore from the School of Public Administration who was admitted to HUST through the Student Athletes Recruitment Program, broke records both in shot put and medicine ball throwing. When interviewed, Xie Weixiang was quite relaxed about the event and his results, modestly saying “competitors are more or less on the same level, I think being calm is the most important thing”.
Having participated twice in the City Games in Tianjin, Guli jiannaijie, a freshman from the School of Energy and Power Engineering who hails from Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, received second and third place respectively in the 800-meter-race and 1500-meter-race.
