World Games
The World Games are a big international sporting event, in which sports and disiplines that have no place at the Olympics make up the program. In the 1970's the idea of a World Games came from the General Association of International Sports Federations, consisting of almost all international sporting federations. In 1980 the World Games Council was founded, which organised the first World Games in 1981 at Santa Clara (USA). In 1996 the organisation was renamed to International World Games Association. The next World Games will be in 2009 at Kaohsiung (tai).
