ESNOLYMPICS is a national project of ESN Poland which allows foreign students studying in Poland to take part in sport competitions almost like at Olympic Games. During the eliminations in different Polish cities we select teams who will meet in Warsaw to compete for the best of the best title.

The beginning of this project was based on many local sport initiatives but the first big intercollegiate competition took place in 2009 in Warsaw as a part of the celebration of XX anniversary of Erasmus Student Network.

The main idea of the sport games was very popular both among participant and enthusiastic organisers. Foreign students coming to Poland were practising hard and pushed us to organise the next editions. As the result - in May 2011, representatives of 11 Polish cities competed to win the champion’s cup.

The 5th edition of our project was this year, we organised two different levels of our competition: local and nationwide.

In March 2015 local eliminations were performed in 12 major Polish cities and the winners from each city took part in the nationwide final and competed with the best teams from Europe in the project ESN TEAM. Nationwide finals took place on premises of Warsaw University of Life Sciences, which ensured proper sport facilities, on 20-22nd March 2015.

The campus of Warsaw University of Life Sciences turned into a real international sport village. Competitors were supported by a lot of fans and students. Thanks to online video transmission, everyone who was interested in finals was able to watch and support their representatives.

The culmination of the whole weekend was the final Gala which summed up the 5th edition of ESNOLYMPICS and where all the winners were awarded.
