I am here at the World Police and Fire Games (WPFG) so for my last post...I need to talk about them
The games have been held and organised every two years, this is the 18th games so can you work out what year they started? Answer at the bottom of this post.
The USA was the first country to suggest the idea, they had a Police Olympics dating back to the 1960s. Over the years the idea to increase the participating countries evolved into what is now known as the World Police and Fire Games.
They have been held across the continents:
Even Australia has hosted on two occasions. This is the first time it has been held in Asia and Chengdu residents seem pretty happy to be involved.
The games, is the second biggest international sporting event on the planet, second only to the Olympics. Every event garners over 10,000 athletes, competing in a range of individual and team sports.
This is my final blog post! You can check out the WPFG website and I'll be back blogging and travelling soon.
See you later alligators.
