A delegation of 25 Chinese gymnasts & coaches visited our club on August 10-11, 2008. About 30 gymnasts from our club did workshops with them and had training together. It was a great success and our girls had a lot of fun sharing gymnastics experience with their Chinese partners. The visit was arranged according to a bilateral agreement by the two clubs. Our club had previously organized two group visits to China in 2000 and 2004. The Chinese club had paid return visits to Canada in 2001 and 2008.
