Off to Beijing, China for the World Combat Games Aug 28 - Sept 3

I am sitting with Sheila at the Vancouver Airport waiting for our flight to Beijing, China where Sheila with be competing at the World Combat Games in Fila Grappling.

From what I understand Facebook is not allowed in China so I wanted to send out a link were everyone can follow the games and keep updated on results.
