During the past 25 editions, the Chinese have claimed the titles 11 times, just one shy of their South Korean peers, with the other two gone to Japan.
On the 12-player list released by the Chinese basketball's governing body last Thursday, Zhang Fan, born in 1984, Ji Yanyan and Huang Hongpin, both born
in 1985, are the three most sophisticated in the squad, and will be of great
help in terms of their rich experience in major tournaments.
Shao Ting, who averaged 12.3 points in last year's World Championships, has been regarded as a "world-class player" in the future by head coach Tom Maher.
Shao will partner with two "post-90" players, Gao Song and Lu Wen, to contribute
on the offensive end.
Undoubtedly, Wu Di is a big surprise on the list. Having no experience in professional league, Wu impressed Maher through her performance on the training
ground, and won the nod from the coach. To learn from others and accumulate
experience for future development is her target in Wuhan.
With a 12-game winning streak in warm-up matches held in China, the Chinese players still face an uphill challenge for Rio Olympics ticket.
The challenge from South Korea is much more than what their trophies show. They play in a similar style like their men peers, with fast speed and good
Two years ago, China lost to South Korea twice in the tournament. In the opening match, they failed to steal the ball from their opponents, only to
suffer a buzzer beater, which clearly manifested the lack of experience of the
Chinese young players.
Led by 1.92-meter center Tokashiki Ramu, Japan won the title of last edition. Her 12 points in the last period gave the Chinese a big hit in the round-robin
first stage. Tall, fast, Ramu earned a huge advantage in the post. Her 20 points
and 18 rebounds in the final awarded Japan another title in the tournament after
The trio of China, South Korea and Japan will meet each other in the first stage, which will be a good opportunity for the Chinese to know about their
Unsurprisingly, the three teams are expected to be among top four. And for the hosts, the real challenge will start from the semifinals.
A Camping Party That Kids Will Love September 14, 2014 | Author: Elba Fenwick | Posted in Home and Family
If you are searching for a theme for a kids’ party, consider a theme that is sure to please everyone. Kids love pitching a tent and sleeping in the great
outdoors and you can create a whole theme based around camping and you don’t
even have to leave the comfort of your backyard. This is a great party option
for scouts or children who love being out and about in nature.
It doesn’t take long for pint-sized guests to start asking about food, and for this event you will want to plan out a menu based upon foods you might fix
on a campout. For instance, perhaps you will roast hot dogs and serve up some
baked beans. Heavy duty foil can be used to make individual dinners for each
child, as well. These can be cooked right in a fire pit or tossed on the grill,
whatever you have. One fun option would be to give each kid a corn chip bag and
top the chips with chili, and then kids can add cheese, slices of grilled hot
dog, catsup, mustard, onions or other toppings.
When one thinks about camping desserts, roasting marshmallows and making s’mores instantly spring to mind. While you can certainly do this, it might be
more fun and easier to simply order a gourmet chocolate pizza from Chocolate
Pizza Company. One of their top-selling pizzas is their signature Campfire
Pizza, which is a blend of milk or dark chocolate and chunks of crispy graham
crackers and chewy mini marshmallows topped with a drizzle of white chocolate.
This unique chocolate treat will elevate your camping party into something truly
special. It even is shipped directly to you inside a genuine pizza box which the
kids will love.
Games are an important part of any party for children, and there are many great outdoor games suitable for a campout party. Consider taking the kids on a
“hike” around your yard and neighborhood. This hike can provide you with an
opportunity to point out plants, birds, bugs and other creatures and you can
even create a scavenger hunt for the hike. Kids can find rocks, leaves, a
feather, twigs and other interesting items and put them in paper bags. You can
also play games such as bocce ball, set up a ring toss or even have a sack race.
When it gets dark, kids love to play with glow sticks, which usually can be
purchased at your local dollar stores.
You can set up one giant tent or perhaps several small tents and have kids bring sleeping bags or place mats or air mattress and blankets and pillows
inside the tents. This can be a great opportunity to show kids how to pitch a
tent or you can have the sleeping area all set up before the kids arrive. Be
sure to set out a big picnic blanket where kids can eat dinner, munch on
chocolate pizza and tell scary stories once the sun sets. There are also some
cool phone apps that will help you identify constellations in the night sky and
if you have one, bring out the telescope and let kids get a closer look at the
moon and stars.
Every themed party needs some decorations and for a camping party, think about the items you bring camping. Lanterns are not only a helpful source of
illumination, they double as a decoration. You can place your food and chocolate
pizzas on top of a table decorated with a checked cloth. Tins cans can be used
to hold silverware for a rustic look. Place some teddy bears on an
