Months of planning, weeks of coordination, and days of rehearsals all led to these few hours. Management, employees, volunteers, and security personnel all fixated at the monitoring station behind the grand stage made for this very moment, the statement of welcome by Nike veteran Craig Cheek, Vice President and General Manager of Greater China, and the start of Nike Festival of Sports. Cheers went out even before Cheek finished a word. In between the presentations and performances by local act like MC Hot Dog, the applause would become a ceaseless, deafening backdrop as the 2 hosts brought each special guests: LeBron James, Amare Stoudemire, Kyrie Irving, and Chris Bosh. On the Nike SB side, there was Paul Rodriguez, Eric Koston, followed by Shane O’Neill and Omar Salazar. The most fervent acclamation came, however, when star 110 meter hurdler, Liu Xiang, joined LeBron James on stage, in this celebration of sports. Nike Festival of Sports will continue on till Sunday.
