Chinese Athletes Prepare to Depart after Successful Semester
The 2010 Chinese Champions program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is winding up a highly successful inaugural session amid news that the innovative exchange has been extended for three additional years.
The groundbreaking program allowed nine Olympic-caliber Chinese student-athletes and coaches to live and study at UW-Madison as part of a partnership with Beijing University of Sport.
The success of the collaboration exceeded the expectations of the Chinese visitors, their UW-Madison hosts and members of the Chinese community in Madison.
