Canada team’s welcome party: The pride of athletes|中文

Two days before the official open ceremony of 2017 Taipei Summer Universiade on August 19, team Canada arrived earlier than all other teams. On August 17, CTOT held a welcome party to show their support of all these great athletes. Also, a lot of different countries’ representatives were invited to the party.

Being the only invited journalists, we were really honored to join this great affair. This time, there are 275 athletes accompanied with over a hundred staff in team Canada. However, even with this much of people, our journalists can clearly feel their strong unity, especially when they sang their national anthem. Though we did not understand the lyrics, we still feel the athletes’ proudness for representing their own country.

During the party, every team leaders showed their strong will of helping Entrep & Co to film a documentary about international athletes and volunteers. All the members also agreed to help our team filming all those memorable moments. All of us, including the teenage journalist and team Canada, wish to capture every impressive moments in the games and everyspecial stories behind the contestants.  

2017台北世大運於8月19日展開,加拿大隊提前抵台暖身,加拿大駐台代表處17日於林口福容大飯店舉辦歡迎酒會,為加拿大選手打氣,也邀請多國代表團團長共襄盛舉。

我們這次很榮幸成為唯一受到邀請參加這場宴會的媒體,加拿大隊本次光是選手就有275位參加,在現場我們感受到了他們的團結,尤其是在大家齊唱國歌時,雖然我們並不知道歌詞,卻也能感受到他們代表國家出征的驕傲,讓記者深受感動。

在交流的過程中,各國代表團團長都表示相當贊同拍攝國際選手與志工紀錄片的提議,也表示願意高度配合與支持,而加拿大的選手們也很期待紀錄片的製作,希望能藉此記錄下台北世大運,賽場上的輝煌與賽場下的故事。
