Basically this article recapped the results of the wushu competition as well as the Eagle Claw competition (fighting and forms). It included a personal account from a participant about some irregularities in the rules for sparring. Also an article from the program which I felt was anti-contemporary wushu was reprinted, and I rebutted some of the inaccurate statements I found. I also pointed out some logistical problems I encountered as a competitor as well.

To be fair, the same school hosted the 1999 CAAT tournament and despite being rather slow, most of the problems I found the year before had been corrected.
