HH Sheik Al-Sabah, OAC President © OCA The President of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), HH Sheik Ahmad Al-Sabah, writes a letter to Asian DanceSport Federation President Keiji Ukai, expressing his gratitude for DanceSport's contribution to the success of the 2010 Asian Games. They concluded recently in Guangzhou, China, and featured DanceSport for the very first time. He also makes reference to continued support and co-operation in future between OCA and the continental federation.
