The final duty of the Haiyang Asian Beach Games organisers is the distribution of medals to the worthy winners. As expected, the ceremony was carried out with great precision; medal winners were led to the podium by beautifully dressed women and then given the coveted Asian Beach Games medal by a number of dignitaries. FAI President John Grubbström gave the medals for the Combined class and CIMA President Richard Meredith-Hardy was given the responsibility for team medals.
The respective flags were raised and the anthems were sung. It was a fitting end to a highly successful event and eyes now turn to 2014 for the 4th Asian Beach Games in Phuket, Thailand. See you there !
