China Daily writes about ultimate frisbee in Beijing after an interview with Hangtime's players.
See the full story here: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/cityguide/2009-05/31/content_7954766.htm
Hong Kong began its tournament with 13-1 and 13-2 wins -- the latter against the Beijing Ugly Trolls, a Big Brother split-squad -- and never looked back en route to capturing the No. 1 overall seed and winning its first team championship in Asia Ultimate in quite a while. (Someone know how many years it's been?)
I hope that you are as excited as we are about the upcoming Chinese Nationals. Everything is almost finalised up here.
Hopefully everyone has cleared the weekend of the 16th and 17th of May since this year’s China Open (Nationals) is going to be awesome. After some technical difficulties we are ready to go live with our website. Please visit the site http://chinaupa.fiveultimate.com to get information from around China concerning Frisbee.
We're still in the process of collecting information for the official recap of this past Saturday's Tianjin tournament, but here were the key happenings:
Shanghai Huwa -- an abridged version led by Jon Greenberg -- won the A pool, beating ISB, Tianjin Waiyuan, Beijing Bang and Tianjin Speed.
Beijing Big Brother won the B pool (though word was Beijing was the No. 1 overall seed), consisting of Changsha (长沙, a Tianjin/Qingdao mix), Teda (with some Dalian players and foreigners), Air Kazak and Tianjin Speed Up.
Pictures from April 4, 2009's Tianjin Ultimate Tournament have been uploaded, hurry up and check 'em out!
Thanks to everyone who came out Saturday night to the Bang! Bang! Bang! event.
It was really great to see so many people out having a good time.
For those who couldn't make it and/or those who drank so much they cannot remember details, here's a bit of a recap:
We have been in contact with teams around China but we wanted to officially announce. So without further ado...
It is that time of the year again. We are excited to be writing you to announce the 2009 China Open – better known as Nationals. This year the festivities will be on the weekend of the 16th and 17th of May, up here in Beijing.
We hope to kick off our new website soon to ease the registration process. We will send another message out when the site is up and running. For now please mark your calendars and start getting your teams ready.

- 2. Jim率领着第五队连着打了三场比赛，队员们累的都不行了，这个是刘杰的责任，我在这里检讨一下。
