The World Games 2017 was the biggest sports event ever hosted in Poland. It left many legacies in the host city Wroclaw, but also in the whole country: The host country established the Polish Non-Olympic Committee, and the committee is based in Wrocław. The main goal of the committee is to develop and promote non-Olympic disciplines as well as to prepare the Polish team for the next edition of The World Games in 2021.
Now, a year after the Games in Wroclaw, the Wroclaw Organising Committee published a book summarising the best bits of The World Games 2017. With 144 pages and more than 400 pictures, the book presents the highlights of each day. It tells the story of the Games in Wroclaw, and what a huge legacy they left behind. You can access the book here.
The World Games is a multi-sport event staged every four years by the International World Games Association under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee. The 11th edition of The World Games will be held in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, 15-25 July 2021. 3,600 athletes from over 30 sports and 100 countries will take part in the Games.
