China doesn t come to Groningen in May

China's National Sports Department has cancelled all competitions in May, so International Gymnast pronounced.
The National Sports Department held an emergency meeting, discussing the present condition of Guang Zhao, Beijing, and other cities areas dealing with rising numbers of SARS cases. The decision was made to cancel or postpone all national Chinese sporting events.
Cancelled are China's plans to send five female gymnasts next week to the 8-Country Meet in Groningen, Netherlands, as well as a separate exchange trip to Europe, so International Gymnast wrote.
