This segment gave a good view into the WorldSkills competition. I didn’t know such championship even existed so it was interesting to find out that events like this take place in the world. I enjoyed learning that young people are trained and encouraged to participate.

I think what impressed me most about this segment was that the young engineers prepared well, and even so, ran into challenges during the competition but were able to adapt and overcome which raised their self-confidence levels.

From the US

Opening shots of the WorldSkills competition in Kazan, Russia in August 2019 were really eye catching. The fast pace, and detailed shots created a sense of excitement and energy. I loved the archive shots of the inaugural event held in Spain in 1950. Young engineers Tatsuya Numahata and Yuto Kikuchi looked focused and totally engrossed in their challenge.
