While I admit that I was gutted to see my favourite sevens rugby team Fiji dumped out by New Zealand in the Cup Semi-Final of this year's Hong Kong Sevens, I was nonetheless happy that the Kiwis became eventual champions, beating England by 29-17. One of the players said that they had tried hard to win the tournament as they wanted to dedicate the victory to Christchurch.
You did it, Kiwis. Well done!
Japan, another nation hard hit by earthquake, didn't do so well though. They lost to Canada in the Final of the Bowl Championship. It must have been difficult for them to prepare for and play in this tournament at a time like this.
