2011 Beijing was the inaugural edition of the WDSF World Freestyle and things will certainly improve for the next championships. These recordings - courtesy of Yoshihiro Arita - are the best WDSF can do until the Chinese broadcasters provide access to their material. WDSF General Secretary Shawn Tay is working on that.
