ICG delegation visited Bangalore / India


From 19th to 25th October Igor Topole, Richard Smith and Zlatko Kauran visited Bangalore / India. We were invited by Elvis Joseph from Bangalore School Sports Foundation to see Bangalore School Games.

We have seen sport competitions in 12 sports: Athletics, Archery, Basketball, Cricket, Football, Hockey, Kabbadi, Rugby, Swimming, Skating, Tennis and Volleyball.


It is estimated that there were more than 3000 children taking part. Competitions were organized well, opening and closing ceremony were very nice.

We had several talks with officials and member of parliament in order to see possibilities for Bangalore to organize ICG games in future. City of Bangalore has enough sport facilities to organize games, but they are so far apart from each other and traffic is so big, that at this moment we don’t see possibilities for the ICG games.


Member of parliament promised to help in building infrastructure inside University Campus - sport facilities and dormitories.
