Dances For A Champ

We can only dream of it.

Ten-year old Sahaj Grover wins the Under-10 section at the World Youths in Belfort, goes home to Delhi, and is treated like a regular champion. There's champagne, garlands and dancing.

I promise, the first time an Aussie kid wins a World Youth section, I'll be there showering them with eucalyptus leaves, a spray of VB and maybe a dance or two.

What about Raymond Song's win last year at the world juniors?

Doesn't count! It's gotta be declared champion.

Thats pretty harsh dont you think?

Well, not really. Was Ray the declared champion? No. Do I recognise his effort? Yes - but he was not the declared champ.
