Weiqi to Make Debut in Asian Games 2010

Perhaps you already know, but if you haven't, igo (I'll use the term weiqi in this post) will make its debut in Asian Games 2010.

The international sports event designed for Asian countries will be held in November. Looking at the list of sports that will be played, weiqi is also in it.

Actually, weiqi is categorized under the term "chess", but the picture of the sport "chess" is using weiqi picture.

I'm actually happy with this news, though it seems that China has the upper hand for this category, but I bet other countries will do their best to win also.

Indonesia will also take part in the championship. We will held a preliminary to decide the athletes, though I still don't know the exact date of the prelim.
