On September 25, the 1st Beihang Laser-Run event, sponsored by Sports Department, was held successfully in the ground track field of Xueyuan Road Campus. Vice-Chairman of Laser-Run Branch of Federation of University Sports of Beijing Dai Xiong, and Deputy Secretary-General Yang Yong were invited to attend the event.
A total of 192 student athletes of 48 teams from 23 schools in Beihang, and 35 volunteers from the School of Computer Science and Engineering participated in the competition.
At 9:00 in the morning, as the starting gun sounded, the race, a mixed relay competition of running and shooting, officially kicked off. All athletes sprinted and competed fiercely when running, and showed great composure when shooting. The enthusiasm of Beihang students lit up the whole track field, where laughter, cheering and shouting echoed endlessly.
After fierce competition, teams from FengRu College, the School of Integrated Circuit Science and Engineering, Shijia College, the School of Reliability and Systems Engineering, the School of Cyber Science and Technology, the School of Transportation Science and Engineering, and the School of Foreign Languages won the top eight places in this competition.
Laser-Run, a combination of running and shooting, was brought forth by Union Internationale de Pentathlon Moderne (UIPM) after the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The competition format and rules are novel and unique, and its process is full of suspense. It not only embodies the philosophical idea of “combination of dynamic and static”, but also enhances the individual’s mental and physical ability to maintain concentration in the face of stress and difficulties.
