There were 10 teams in total playing in 2 Groups. Desley Payne and Judy Chin represented the Sunshine Coast while Linda Yap joined Jan Yu and Linda Towler in the Moreton Bay Team. Linda Yap came home with the GOLD. Great effort Linda!!
Judy and Desley fought very hard but with teams from all over the world (including Gold Coast, NSW, Tasmania and even Taiwan) it was pretty tough. Well done Judy + Desley. One thing for sure is they fought to the end.
So of our 9 teams (some composite) we got 2 gold (if you include Peng and another if you include Colin Noh), 2 silver and 1 bronze.
