I remember going to the World Student Games, went on quite a few of the event days and also the closing ceremony. If I remember correctly I was walking about with people like Sally Gunnell, Roger Black, Steve Backley,, and erm some others.
Always remember they were giving out free stuff and I came back with so many sporting items. Also, they were giving away athletics cards in the style of the pro-set football cards that were popular back then. Equivalent today would be the Topps cards. Had so many packs I would spend hours unwrapping them all when i got back. Strange memory to have.
This was the only time the WSG have been held in the UK. Also, we (the city of Sheffield) are still paying for it until 2024, at which point it will have cost nearly £700 million.
