The powers that be in golf are hoping they have a rising star on their hands from a country that is constantly in the spotlight.


Golf is a relatively new sport in China, but now they have someone who is breaking new ground.


Liang wen-Chong is going where no other Chinese player has been before, and he could well have a brand new tour to play on.


Al Jazeera’s Wayne Hay caught up with him.

Rare regatta

A rare regatta on the Zambezi river

You are unlikely to see a Zambian crew competing in the coxless 4’s at the Olympics in Beijing this summer.


But it might not be that distant a dream – after all, the nation does host an international rowing regatta on the Zambezi river.

Archery’s ambitions

Archery has been trying to attract more fans

In five months time the elite of world sport will be gathered in Beijing at the start of the 2008 Olympics.


For smaller Olympic sports, it will be an opportunity to promote their cause in an attempt to gain more exposure, participants, and funding.


One of those sports is archery, which has recently been trying to revamp its image to attract more fans.


It began at the Archery World Cup, and Sportsworld’s Joanna Gasiorowska was there.
