| Chinese communities invited to present Chinese culture in Moncton 2010 ceremonies
The 13th IAAF World Junior Track and
Field Championship was held in Moncton on July 19 - 25, 2010. Athletes
from 170 countries and regions attended the championship which was the
biggest and most important world-class sport event held in the history
of Atlantic Canada.
As an important part of the multicultural element in the Moncton 2010
ceremonies, Chinese communities of Moncton and Fredericton were invited
to present Chinese cultural performances in both opening and closing
ceremonies of the championship. The Chinese communities demonstrated
the Chinese Tai Chi in the opening ceremony and performed Chinese
dragon and lion dance together with beautiful Chinese ribbon dance in
the closing ceremony. Our dragon and ribbon dance was known as a gold
medal performance in the closing ceremony by TV media.
