2013 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games

The 2013 Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games were held in Korea, at the Yonsei Global University Campus, from 30 June to 5 July 2013. Go was an event for the first and perhaps only time in the history of the Games.

Of Asia's 49 generally recognised nation states, only five participated: China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan (as Chinese Taipei) and Thailand.

For more information, see the excellent [ext] Wikipedia article.

Both China and Korea (and perhaps all the competing countries) seem to have treated the event as a chance to train their promising young players, with all their team members having (probably) been born 1992-98.

Gold was won by Tang Weixing, Silver by Byun Sangil, and Bronze by Tan Xiao and Lee Donghoon.

The _winning men's team was Korea: Byun Sangil, Kang Seungmin, Lee Donghoon, and Na Hyun. The runner up was China: Mi Yuting, Peng Liyao, Tan Xiao and Tang Weixing.

The winning women's team was China: Gao Xing, Wang Shuang, Yu Zhiying and Zhang Peipei. The runner up was Korea: Choi Jung, Kim Chaeyeong, O Jeonga and O Yujin.

The winning mixed pair was Peng Liyao with Gao Xing. The runner up was Na Hyun with Choi Jung. The Bronze medals also went to the Koreans and Chinese: to Kang Seungmin with O Jeonga and to Mi Yuting with Yu Zhiying.

Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) managed to take Bronze in both the men's and women's team events, whilst Japan was only able to get Bronze in the men's. The Chinese Taipei men's team was Chen Shiyuan, [ext] Cho Chunhsun, Xiao Zhenghao and Lin Zhihan. The women's team was Chang Chengping?, Zhang Kaixin, Joanne Missingham and Su Shengfang. The Japanese men's team was Hirata Tomoya, Motoki Katsuya, Sada Atsushi and Tsuruta Kazushi.

Achieving the women's team Bronze is one of the most notable successes of Thai Go to date. The players were Pattraporn Aroonphaichitra, Juthamate Jaruratchataphun, Aroonkorn Prathoomwan and Ribakah Wongchugaew.
