Additionally the visit provided the chance to visit the facilities which are being used for the ‘Jogos Escolares Brasileiros’ (JEB), the Brazilian School Games, with a similar framework being envisioned for Brazil 2023, when school students aged 13-15 years of age will travel from around the world to Brazil to participate in the 2nd edition of the new ISF event, the U15 World School Sport Games. Taking place from 29 October to 5 November, the Brazilian School will gather 8000 participants from all over Brazil to compete in 17 sports, 5 team and 12 individual sports.
ISF President Laurent Petrynka: “It is important for ISF to be at the Brazilian School Games, to see how Brazil is organising events as Brazil will host the next edition of the U15 World School Sport Games in 2023 and continue the development of this new ISF event. The fact that the majority of venues are in the Olympic Park and were used for Olympics 2016 is also an important factor, so that students can experience the spirit of the Olympic Games.”
CBDE President Antonio Hora Filho spoke about the importance of the Brazilian School Games after 17 years since the last edition: "There is a huge and natural expectation about the return of the Brazilian School Games, after all, it is almost two decades of waiting. The structure offered here in the Olympic Park makes the event even more special, especially because it is in the wonderful city.”
