School of Kinesiology to welcome Chinese Olympic athletes to Twin Cities for second cohort of China Champions Program

To foster an exchange of culture, education and sport, the University of Minnesota will host eight Chinese Olympic and world champion athletes and one Olympic-level coach as part of the School of Kinesiology’s China Champions Program (CCP), arriving at the beginning of November. This is the second year for the unique program.

The China Champions Program (CCP) represents a collaboration between the U of M and Beijing Sport University, which was formed following University President Eric Kaler’s visit to China. The China Scholarship Council is covering the cost of the athletes’ travel, as well as room and board in Minnesota.
