AVV-ASIA News vol.2

February 8, 2011



1.The AVV Vice-President Chang-Hsien Hsieh Passed Away.

On behalf of Asian Confederation of Popular Sports, we would like to express our deepest condolence at the passing AVV-Vice President Chang-Hsien Hsieh, President of Chinese Taipei Alpine Association. No words are sad enough to express our sense of loss. He was a tough walker in his youth. He had walked fifty kilometers with thirty-kg of rice on his back. He also had been a good friend of us all. Under his leadership, Chinese Taipei Alpine Association opened a door to many international walkers and let them have opportunities to join joyful walking events in Taiwan.
Though we are still in grief, but let us walk and meet with the spirit of peace, mutual understanding and fair play. Let us carry on walking upon the road he would have liked to go. It is our hope that he will be long remembered through the good relationships he built in the fields of popular sports. The vivid impression he made on all of us will always live in our memory.

Motohiro Kawauchi AVV Secretary
