While You Were Asleep ...

grandSlam Hong KongThe organisers of the 2013 GrandSlam in Hong Kong kept very busy for the last two days preparing the venue for this weekend's competitions. The arena at the Ma On Shan Sports Centre is virtually ready to be danced at and looks absolutely stunning already, with a superb GrandSlam look applied to it throughout.

The WDSF Communications team members finally met up face-to-face with their counterparts on the Organising Committee and with the producers in charge of the international television signal. After weeks of corresponding by e-mail and occasionally talking by phone, it was a pleasure to shake hands at last with

  • George Yip, Chairman of the Hong Kong DanceSport Association
  • Winifred, a delightful person who was recruited by George to work as a volunteer for the GrandSlam - and whose responsibilites span such range that no job title would be sufficiently appropriate
  • Albert Cheng, the senior sports producer at Television Broadcasts (TVB)
  • Patrick Kwan, technical director for outside broadcast at TVB

But there is also some work still to be done: applying the final touches to the venue fit-out and preparing for the two live broadcasts (Eurosport 2/Eurosport Asia on Saturday/Sunday from 12:30 UTC/GMT). The dancers and the adjudicators are expected to be showing up during the later part of the day.
