Dr. Tulin told in his acceptance speech that he’s grateful for the trust bestowed upon the university to hold the games again for the nth time.

“I hope that when you [athletes] come to VSU next year, you will have a unique experience. We hope to see more of you, more of the young talents in 2017,” he added.
