They might be young, but sport is a crucial part of their lives.
Beste and Qin, two youth athletes from different countries, Turkey and China - former and future host of Gymnasiade, and different sports, swimming and fencing, are united by the same passion - School Sport.
"When I am at water I am at home."
Meet Beste Samanci, an 18 year old #Gymnasiade2018 swimmer who also happens to be a Turkish record holder in 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke, has two golds from #Gymnasiade 2016 and is a current World School Champion in two disciplines from Budapest 2017.
"Fencing has become a part of my life."
Qin Jin Yan started fencing as a 10 year old. He's hoping a good placement at the Gymnasiade 2018 will help him get into one of the best Universities in China.
