    Nah, the Jiangsu Team came last year. I'm thinking of volunteering in it, but I'm sure someone on BC will be able to get some videos.

    Women.......:(

    The result is as predited 2-0, Our national camp "David" lost! :crying:

    Also 2-0 our BC's double team "Dereck" lost on Friday.

    They are so well trained they don't sweat.
    Did not remember the Shanghai players use any towel!
