Opening Ceremony Message from Boutros Boutros-Ghali

Please accept my good wishes for the Universiade 95 to be heid in fukuoka from 23 augusut to 3 september 1995. Since its inception, the Universiade has provided a splendid forum for the talents and energy of student sportsmen the world over to synergize in a collective celebration of strength. endurance and accomploshment.The world itself is returning to the recognition that competition need not be combative, nor does the victory of one necessarily imply the defeat of another.It is leraning to accept, once again. the truth that triumph derives from the quality of performance and not simply the arithmetic of the result. And it has reawakende to the realization that differences in nation or culture are transcended by the commonness of humanity. These are precepts to which Universiade is no stranger and which it has so ably represented. To the sportsmen and women from all over the world who will be gathered in Fukuoka on this occasion my greetings and thoughts. Yours sincerely. Boutros Boutros-Ghali
