The Universiade, also known as the World University Games, is the second largest multi-sport event in the world, second only to the Olympics. It is overseen by the International University Sports Federation (FISU), not the IOC, and has been officially held since 1959, with a history of pre-cursor events that goes back to 1923. It is now a biannual event; the 23th Universiade will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, and modern wushu has been officially accepted as an event for the first time.
The Taolu Team Trials for the 2017 Universiade US Wushu Team will be taking place on March 25, 2017 at the UC Berkeley RSF Fieldhouse.
