The first Chinese University Healthy Campus Challenge that concluded last month recorded a whopping 10 million physical acts.

The contest launched by the Federation of University Sports of China (FUSC) saw almost half a million students, teachers and administrative from 351 universities located in 30 local provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions take part.

The purpose of the event was to establish a healthy campus evaluation system, involving more universities and participants, that helps in improving the well-being of campus communities.

The challenge was evaluated mainly by the frequency of physical acts required from students and the healthy campus standards of participating universities.

The event also saw 30 experts in the field of injuries and rehabilitation in sport, nutrition, and medical care or emergency treatment give out lectures and exchange sessions with health ambassadors.

Last month, the International University Sports Federation awarded its Health Campus label to two Portuguese universities.

The Healthy Campus initiative was introduced to embed good lifestyle choices and improve well-being standards across university campuses.
