    The 7th TAFISA World Sport for All Games have come to an end in Lisbon. They were initially scheduled to take place in October 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organizers had to postpone the event. As a result, the Games were held both online for foreign participants and offline for the Portuguese public.

    All 86 organizations (from 39 countries) sent video content with demonstrations of national and traditional sports and activities to a special web-platform before the June 18 deadline. The content (about 6 hours of videos per day) was available for viewing 24/7 around the world and included interviews with experts, seminars, online debates, as well as video clips.

    The Russian Olympic Committee presented videos about gorodki (game similar to skittles), which is an original Russian sport, and the sports festival Winter Sports Day, annually bringing together tens of thousands of healthy lifestyle enthusiasts across the country. Another participant from Russia was the International Mas-Wrestling Federation.

    The organizers and partners of the Games, as well as famous Portuguese Fado performers, took part in the opening ceremony of the 7th TAFISA World Sport for All Games in the Belém Gardens of Lisbon.

    On June 24, the closing ceremony of the Games took place there as well. The highlight of the event was the handing over the TAFISA flag to the organizer of the next TAFISA World Sport for All Games scheduled to be held in Nizhny Novgorod in 2024.

    Due to the fact that the ROC delegation was unable to come to Lisbon, the TAFISA flag was handed over to the First Secretary of the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Portugal Ekaterina Spitsina. This was done by the President of the Portuguese Institute of Sports and Youth Victor Patako.

    As part of the closing ceremony, ROC Director General Vladimir Sengleev addressed the participants of the Games online. In addition, a presentation was shown of Nizhny Novgorod as the host city of the 8th TAFISA World Sport for All Games.
