Team Arrives into buzzing Kaohsiung

The team has arrived into Kaohsiung, a city buzzing with excitement with the arrival of the World Games to Taiwain. With a deafening welcome from the local children at the airport to the massive nightly firework display over the Love River, Kaohsiung is certainly putting on a show. Tonight the World Games opens with the opening ceremony in the 40,000 solar powered stadium. Tomorrow the first orienteering competition begins with the Sprint around Kaohsiung Fine Arts Museum. Expect some heated racing with an expected top of 33 degrees, and plenty of humidity to match, the Aussies should be well prepared to handle the conditions.
