WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP 2002 - KOREA

 

This page contains impressions of the World Championship.

This first major competition in the Asian region was a success.

The organization did everything to make it comfortable for all the participants.

Especially the use of interpreters was a very good decision because this made the communication much more easy and avoided misunderstandings.

The organization was well structured and they could handle very well the different problems that arise when people arrive at the same time on the same spot.

Opening ceremony
 

The opening ceremony included speeches form different honorable guests, amongst them the Minister of Health and Welfare, Mr. Tae Bok LEE and the Governor of the Gyeonggi-do Province, Mr. Hak-Kyu Sohn.

For the first time in the history of our sport, we received a lot of media coverage from national newspapers as well as from the national TV-channel.

Local traditional dancers entertained the public and after this short ceremony, every team could sent 2 members to attend the opening banquet.
