One of the programmes at the opening ceremony was to invite all participants to perform Ba Duan Jin at the Peace Palace in Hague, which is usually not open to the public.  Although we were hit by strong wind and rain, we all finished the performance successfully.


In Duan Examination, Stella Ng passed the 5 Duan and Henry Chan passed the 4 Duan.


Five of our team members took the international judge course. President Edward Ho, Angela Ho, Brenda Ho, Florence Lam and Jose Chia obtained the referee training certificates. Edward Ho and Florence Lam were selected as referees in the competitions. A 2-day Health Qigong Workshop for individual (either 12-Step Daoyin or Mawangdui) was also taken place in the sports centre.


There were two days of competitions. A team of four consists of Anissa Ho, Foulata Lee, Henry Chan and Stella Ng won a silver trophy of the Group Competition in Yi Jin Jing. As for individual competitions, our team brought home with 1 gold medal, 5 silver medals and 9 bronze medals.
