Tuesday/ closing ceremony of the Universade 2011

The 2011 University Games is over (website http://www.sz2011.org/Universiade/), so soon, it seems.   Tuesday night saw the closing ceremony, fittingly held at the Windows of the World theme park in Shenzhen, where just about every country in the world is represented with an iconic building or scene.    The first picture is from the website, the other two are screen shots from the TV broadcast.  The flowery floor is a giant LED screen.   Must be something to get used to, to dance on one!

China hauled in the most medals (145), followed by Russia (132) and Korea(79).  The USA got 50.  But of course the event was great for public relations and for athletes to meet their peers from other countries.
