Gwangju Mayor Yoon Jang-hyeon held a press briefing yesterday to wrap up the 12 day long multi-sporting Gwangju Universiade and said the event would not have been possible without the citizens of Gwangju and that the citizens should be proud of hosting the Universiade successfully.


He emphasized that the praise the city has received for successful operation of Universiade from International University Sports Federation officials and different delegations should go to the citizens of Gwangju who worked tirelessly to finish the event successfully.


Mayor Yoon added that the high participation rate in volunteer activity and the different public campaigns to promote a clean, orderly and welcoming Gwangju was the light that shined throughout the Universiade.


Yoon also expressed his gratitude to volunteers, supporters, former mayors of Gwangju, military, firefighting and police officials as well as organizers and city workers.
