Singapore (RSS), Rulang Primary School and the families of the
Countries participating are
Kong, Macau, China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, India, Pakistan and
Our Singapore team of 4 Jumping Jewels and 8
Rulangnites won 4 bronze medals.
The Korean federation who hosted the championships has outdone
themselves by giving us a wonderful venue for the games. Another
they did was to hire a team of undergraduate translators to be liaisons
for the participating countries. Many other thoughtful details
made this Asian Championships an enjoyable experience.
