This event acted as an opportunity to test various methods and principles and to put the HBS and TWI cooperation into action, as well as providing top-class HDTV pictures of the competition. Come event time a number of unique challenges were presented, such as the unusual weather conditions — intensive rain — and the diversity of sports, which ranged from chess to football, sepaktakraw to kabaddi and aquatics to wushu.
