The first EXPATS GAMES had an excellent atmosphere in spite of April weather that was more reminiscent of the fall
The overcast sky and rain alternating with the occasional sun did not discourage the participants of the first EXPATS GAMES, the largest sport and social meeting of Czechs and foreigners living in the Czech Republic.
The first multicultural EXPATS GAMES took place on Saturday, May 25, on the grounds of the Czech Agricultural University in Prague - Suchdol. Despite the bad weather, approximately 200 visitors made their way to the event and either became active participants in the games and sports or simply watched, listened and supported.
The grounds, which opened to the public when the clock struck 11, offered visitors the opportunity to participate in various sports activities, such as soccer, cricket, Taiji, yoga, football tennis, archery and wall climbing. The most attractive part of the event, the Czech Games, started at noon with several international teams taking part. Throughout the Czech Games, the competitors tried out unusual disciplines that were linked to Czech traditions as well as to knowledge of our country. For example, the teams “extinguished a fire” as a tribute to the Czech saint Florian, the patron saint of all firefighters, and they also tasted and tried to recognize various kinds of beer. The teams also had the opportunity to try running a hurdle race while wearing hockey equipment.
The EXPATS GAMES featured not only sports, but interesting cultural performances as well. The list of Saturday’s accompanying activities also featured a program for children that included a theater performance by the Roztoč company, a colorful dance performance featuring a Bollywood dance demonstration, catchy African rhythms and finally a concert in Club C by the bands Brouci Band The Beatles Revival and the Legendary Buccaneers. The visitors also had the opportunity to contribute to the Jedlicka Institute Foundation, specifically to a collection for the purchase of a new barrier-free bus.
“We would like to thank especially the event visitors who came in spite of the bad weather and contributed to the excellent atmosphere that took over the grounds in Suchdol, as well as all performers and event partners who supported us and helped to establish a new tradition that will continue in future years,” adds Jan Plachý of the eventime agency that organized the entire event.
