The first-ever Student (Youth) Games in Nanning, China, marked a significant milestone in integrating sports and education. Combining the National Youth Games and National Student Games, the event aims to break down barriers between the sports and education sectors. Previously, separate competitions posed a dilemma for students torn between studies and sports careers.

The Games provide a platform for young athletes to compete at a high level while continuing their education, nurturing talent and promoting a harmonious balance between academics and athletics. The event features 39 sports, 51 disciplines, and 805 events, with impressive performances and records broken. Li Hui, an official at the State General Administration of Sport, emphasized the Games’ importance in advancing youth sports, fostering talent, and assessing progress in sports-education integration.
