“On a bluebird day like Sunday, all bright and sunny with snow crystals reflecting in the light, there is no question why we love snow,” Sarah Lewis, FISU Deputy Secretary General and Chief Operating Officer
“You can feel the uplifting effect on our well-being as soon as you step out the door and take a deep breath of that fresh and cold air.”

The conditions for all events happening on the third competition day of this winter’s FISU Games were excellent and attracted countless spectators to the venues to watch university students compete at the highest level.

Lewis shared the panel discussion with three experts in the field.
