insidethegames.biz are running a LIVE BLOG from the Lake Placid 2023 FISU Winter World University Games in New York State, United States?

Chief senior reporter Geoff Berkeley and reporter Owen Lloyd have travelled to Lake Placid to bring you all the latest news, as-it-happens, from the largest multi-sport winter event for collegiate athletes.

Our LIVE BLOG starts today and covers all eleven days of action until the Closing Ceremony at the Olympic Center on 22nd January.

Around 1,443 athletes from 46 countries and 540 universities are expected to participate in the 12 sports; alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, curling, figure skating, freestyle & freeski, ice hockey, nordic combined, short track speed skating, ski jumping, snowboard and speed skating.

Meet Adirondack Mac, the Lake Placid 2023 official mascot, a 6-foot moose donned with a New York scarf and hat and a welcoming smile.

The Festival that runs alongside the sporting events will host live music concerts, Medal Ceremonies each evening and an ice sculpture will be created each day and lit for display along Main Street.

Our LIVE BLOG is updated constantly so you don’t miss a thing.


Get involved on Twitter and Facebook and share individual updates or make comments on the Live Blog itself.

All on your favourite website insidethegames.biz.
