    Background: The Chinese won both the men's and women's team events on the first day of the Bangkok Goodwill Gymnastics Tournament. Teams from China, Japan, the United States and a team composed of Filipino, Thai and Indonesian gymnasts, were competing in the two day Police Charity event. Wen Jia's performance in the floor exercises helped China to victory over the Japanese team. The packed hall responded enthusiastically to Temei Xu and Feng Yu, two young members of the Chinese women's team during the vaulting exercises. The second day of the tournament will feature the individual championships.
