Australian/New Zealand RoboCup Junior 2009 success (note of local interest!)
While congratulations are due to all the competitors who managed to get to Graz Austria and compete to the best of their ability, special Tasmanian congratulations are due to Google supported Yaya Lu, entered as "RoboKid". Paired with the marvellous Japanese team "Rock On", she shared first place in the Rescue Superteams event. This the first time an entrant representing Australia (even if she is a New Zealand passport holder) has achieved a world first in the difficult World RoboCup Junior Primary Rescue event.
Congratulations also to Tasmania’s Google supported "REMWIZ" who gained the Collegiality award in Primary Dance.
