CHINA TRIP -- Departure Day!!

Our group met at San Francisco Airport; checked in ; went through security and then headed to the international gate where we waited for our13+ hour flight on a large China Air 747. The picture above shows the group near the check-in gate.

Left to Right: Yilla Guan (our hostess from Allied International Resources); Jan Rude (President of Duraflex International); Kathy and Doug Bowman (Duraflex Factory Superintendent); Joanne and Bill Walker (Past President of USA Diving); Micki King (1972 Olympic Gold Medallist -- Women's 3M Springboard); Steve Voellmecke (Springboards and More); Lindsay, Micki and Mark Spry (Duraflex International Engineer); Tony Huang (VP and GM of Allied International).
On the plane, we were able to read the diary (and see the photos) that Micki King kept when she last visited China in 1973 after winning the Olympic Gold Medal for Springboard Diving in Munich, Germany the year before.

Hellow, I just read your blog and found that Michi King is in your blog.

My friend just wrote a blog regarding Michi King visited Beijing in 1973. My friend was a diving coach and had a discussion with Michi in Beijing.

I am in US and work in New York Power Authority. Could you pass my phone number and email address to Michi. I would like to let Michi know the blog that my friend/the Chinese Diving team coach she met wrote.

Here is my info:

Thank you very much to pass this info to Michi.
