Meanwhile, in the other SAR ... There was no love lost when children took on parents at a school soccer fun day at Macau Olympic sports complex earlier this month. More than 400 children and parents gathered for the May 4 event that included a host of activities for all ages. The carnival was organised by the Macau Sports Development Board and Macau Football Association. Dennis Wong, who was at the fun day with his son John, said it was a great way to get involved and have some fun at the same time. Mr Wong, who played soccer as a boy, said he never missed an opportunity to get back on the pitch. 'There's no doubt I am not as fast as I used to be, but it's still a lot of fun,' he said. 'Soccer is such a popular game in Macau and around the world. It takes a great deal of skill to be a professional, but just about anyone can play if they give it a go. It's good to play against the kids because we get an understanding of how good they really are.' Jimmy Tseng, 13, a midfielder, has been playing soccer since he was five years old and dreams of becoming a professional one day. Jimmy said the game was all about skill and being as 'fast as you can so you get to the ball first'. 'It's great because you can play at school with your friends for fun and also play seriously,' Jimmy said. 'My older brother is also a good player and he has taught me a lot of good things.' Organisers said they hoped the soccer fun day provided a better understanding of 'students' learning progress', enhanced 'training for football schools' and improved 'daily understanding and support'.
