Some 40 overseas students finished their one-month summer school studies at the Shanghai University of Sports on July 31.

The students hailing from over 20 countries experienced a variety of activities, ranging from sports events such as the martial arts and table tennis to history lectures over the span. A series of cultural activities enabled them to practice paper cutting and calligraphy, perform the tea ceremony, enjoy acrobatics and the city sightseeing.

Zhan Meng, deputy secretary of Party committee, acknowledged the program's devotion to fostering culture communication and stressed on the significance of martial arts and table tennis, two Chinese traditional sports deeply rooted in philosophy.

With the introduction of scholarship established by Shanghai government, Zhan welcomed overseas students to take advanced sports studies at SUS.

A martial performance marked the climax of the ceremony, with students showing off their skills and movements in a dignified manner. The ceremony ended with the presentation of certificates for participants and volunteers.

The program helped participants get close with Chinese history and promoted Chinese traditional sports culture to a broader audience.
