Team USA Wins Gold At Hong Kong Tournament Classic
Team USA won the gold medal at the Hong Kong Asian Cup Classic. The tournament began on Nov. 26 and lasted until Nov. 30 when the medal games were played.
Team USA arrived in Hong Kong on Sat. Nov.22 & Sun. Nov. 23 and immediately began taking in the city and experiencing the Hong Kong flavor. The first day the team went to the street markets were everything sold was a discount, a bartering discount for fake copy items such as Rolex watches, fake jewelry etc. but the team had fun negotiating with these masters of the bidding process.
After a team dinner, the time change and jet lag were taking its toll, we called it a night. On Monday the team took the trip the Buddha by way of the sky tram along 20 minute ride over the hills and river taking in a beautiful view of Hong Kong & Hong Kong Island. The amount of construction going on in Hong Kong was overwhelming, apartment towers 40 floors high, 5,000 people living in the complex or more was amazing how they place all these people, it makes you appreciate what we have here in the USA. Once reaching the Buddha and climbing the stairs to the top, you get to appreciate this wonder, its construction and what it means to the people of China.
