By Rick Armstrong, WRAL Enterprise multimedia journalistDurham, N.C. — Our state now has a 50-50 chance to host an event close to the level of the Olympic Games. It's down to the Triangle and a city in South Korea as the finalists to host the 2027 Summer World University Games. The Durham Bulls Ball Park could be one of several venues in the state hosting competition on a worldwide scale. That's where the international site selection delegation visited. "Durham Bulls Athletic Park is a show case for Durham and to have this group here today shows our commitment," said Marcus Manning, executive director of Durham Sports Commission.
