My gold medal from the kungfu competition in Yantai. Not as impressive as it sounds, I think the competition was sponsored by a gold medal manufacturer. Everyone had one.
The nunchuck crew. I thought being in a gang of nunchuck wielding martial artists might be exciting till I met these guys. 13 bottles of Redbull for the main stage please!
Lining up to be introduced. We stand there for half an hour till someone calls our name over the tanoi, then we wave. Thrilling times.
