(Clearwisdom.net) On August 11, 2002, San Francisco Falun Gong practitioners took part in an annual sports meet of local residents of Chinese descent, which was held at a college in San Francisco. Their bright yellow exercise suits were quite eye-catching, and their good demeanor was praised by both participants and organizers. During the event, the practitioners took the opportunity to clarify the truth about Falun Dafa to the local Chinese people.

Participating in the activity as volunteers

One day before the sports meet, more than ten practitioners volunteered to help with the preparation work. Their good demeanor received organizers' praise. The practitioners got along well with local Chinese people, taking every possible opportunity to clarify the truth and introduce to them that "Falun Dafa is good," and "Falun Dafa is the righteous Fa." They also explained how such a good cultivation way is suffering from brutal persecution by the Jiang regime.

After the meet, the practitioners volunteered to clean up the site, and the organizers were quite appreciative.

Friendship first, competition second

Because the Dafa practitioners left such a favorable impression with the local Chinese people, we were permitted to hang large posters about Falun Dafa inside the stadium so that we could directly let people know the truth about Falun Dafa. In the meantime, we hung many Dafa truth-clarifying display boards outside the stadium, which proved to have a good effect also.

We took part in the tug-of-war contest and won third prize. We tried our best to show the kind nature of Falun Dafa through our sportsmanship and warmth towards the other participants.

Pure and beautiful art performances

We sang "Falun Dafa is good" and demonstrated Falun Gong exercises. We also performed fan and heavenly girl dances, and sang other songs. Our performance won warm applause from the audience and the host's high appraise.
