The competition venue, as well as the athletes’ village, will all be packaged into one location – Chang Jung Christian University (CJCU). Chang Jung Christian University is a modern higher learning institution that was established more than a century ago in the late 1800s (www.cjcu.edu.tw/english/History.htm). Its entire staff and student body all support the effort to organize the championship.
Particularly, university president Chen Chin-Sheng personally attended the FISU executive committee (EC) meeting held this past August in Bangkok, Thailand to present the championship progress report and to show his enthusiasm. This was the first time in the history of CTUSF that the host university sent its highest official to the FISU EC meeting.
Chang-Jung Christian University’s involvement with international sports organization started last year when they accommodated softball teams and organizing committee (OC) staff members participating in the 2006 World University Softball Championship. In 2008 CJCU will bring their experience and expertise to help organize the most successful WUC Archery yet.
Whereas in 2000 the WUC Archery was held in northern Chinese Taipei, this time it will be staged in southern Chinese Taipei, in the City of Tainan County. Located on the south western coast of Chinese Taipei, Tainan County enjoys mild and beautiful weather all year round. Being close to the ocean, its main tourist attractions include amazing lagoons and wetlands with wild animal reserves. Tainan County is also rich in religious and historical activities. Participants of the WUAC will be sure to find themselves in out-of-this-world experiences.
While a permanent website for the championship is still in the process of being created, a temporary website has been set up to provide for valuable information. You can find basic information on the championship, including entry forms, at 2008wuac.ctusf.org.tw.
