Asian Beach Games 2012 - Medal Ceremony and Results


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 !

Asian Beach Games 2012 - Task 11 The Eight [2]

2012-asian-beach-games-caiThe last day was welcomed by very light winds, ideal for the final task of the competition. With the medal ceremony due around noon today, Competition Director Zhang WEI opted for a slalom and a repeat of the popular “The Eight”.

The on-site organisation had been excellent all week, so take-off was briefed to start in just 20 minutes, with the first competitors taking off on time.

This was a little too windy for the tasks first planned by the Competition Director, but the decision was taken to start Precision Take-offs and Landings in the hope that the wind did not follow the predictions. Sadly this was not the case and the task was stopped shortly afterwards.
