The overall winner of the 10th Chinese Bridge competition held in London on 19 March is Peter Dolby, a 4th year undergraduate from Chinese Studies at the University of Edinburgh who, after a long day of competition, was awarded first prize by Chinese Ambassador Liu Xiaoming.
This nationwide heat saw the three Edinburgh students each gain a place in the top ten. The Chinese Bridge competition has been running for ten years but this is the first time that Edinburgh has sent students to compete.
Accompanying the students were He Jin, one of the Institute`s Chinese language teachers who teaches all three students, and Wang Shunqing recently arrived co-director.
In addition to a cash prize,Peter will go forward to the global competition which will take place in Beijing in July 2011.
