Aliya Mustafina's Athlete's oath in the opening ceremony of Universiade ...

At the opening ceremony of the Summer University/Universiade Games, Aliya Mustafina gave the athletes oath at the ceremony.

It's pretty hilarious, only because the woman who introduces Aliya mistakenly says that she is the World and Olympic Champion in Rhythmic Gymnastics. No one bothers to correct the announcer, and Aliya continues with her oath.

Looks like she got over that nasty flu that according to the Couch Gymnast, landed her in the hospital.

This is the athlete's oath in English:


  1. "On behalf of all the student athletes, I promise that we shall take part at the Universiade, respecting and abiding by the rules which govern them, committing ourselves to a sport without doping and without drugs, in the true spirit of sportsmanship, fair-play, for the glory of our country, for the honour of our teams and for the achievement of International University Sports Movement."
