ESNOLYMPICS is the national project of ESN Poland allowing foreign students from the whole Poland to take part in sport competitions almost like Olympic Games. During the eliminations in different Polish cities, we select teams, who will meet in Warsaw to compete for the best of the best title.
The beginning of this project is based on many local sport initiatives, but the first big intercollegiate competition took place in 2009 in Warsaw as a part of celebration of XX anniversary of Erasmus Student Network. The main idea of the sport games was very popular, both among glad participants and enthusiastic organizers. Foreign students coming to Poland were practicing hard and pushed us to organize the next editions. As the result – in May 2011, representatives of 11 Polish cities competed to gain the champion’s cup. In 2012 took place the next national edition of ESNOLYMPICS. The host of this event was National Defense Academy. Participants from the whole Poland faced 4 disciplines: swimming, marching and jogging exercise with the elements of checking the knowledge about European Union and ESN Poland, fitness gears and futsal.
This year edition gathered 143 participants from 10 cities from Poland and also Lithuania and Portugal. ESNOLYMPICS are primarily people, a lot of fighting spirit and sport experience. Both participants and supporters of the previous editions agreed that it is not only hard competition and incredible excitement, but also a lot of fun in an international team.
