Hassan Abdulsalam, a Youth Digest network export, and 11 others have been chosen to cover the FISU World University Games as sport journalists from July 28 to August 8.

The twelve journalists were chosen as part of the FISU Young Reporters Programme (YRP), which was developed in collaboration with The International Sport Press Association (AIPS).

Hassan was the only African selected for the programme.
The young journalists will have the chance to learn from prominent mentors such as Micheal Bélanger and Stéphane Jobin (FISU) and Riccardo Romani (AIPS) during their time in China.

“I am truly honoured to be a part of the Young Reporters Programme in China,” Hassan said after receiving news of his selection.

“I am looking forward to the enriching experiences and valuable learning opportunities it will bring. I am eager to contribute my skills and passion to the program.”

Mr Hassan was notably named the best sport writer in the 2021 edition of the Youth Digest’s Campus Journalism award and continues to be contributing member of the network.

In that time, Hassan worked as a sport journalist for Platform Times and an intern for Premium Times, covering sport news, sport investigations and special reports.

Since graduating from the Moshood Abiola Polytechnic in 2022, where he began his media career, he has worked for Pulse as a sport journalist.

Hassan will join Annika Saunus (Germany), Julieta Boschiazzo (Argentina), Louis Gilles (France), Miha Trošt (Slovenia), Andjela Cegar (Croatia) and Noor Saleha Salem (Phillipines) for the games.

Others include Pedro Consoli (Brazil), Miriam Celebiler (USA), Netra Venkitasubramanian (India), Ana Brenčić (Croatia) and Piotrek Przyborowski (Poland).
