Families, supporters and members of Chicago's Korean-American community gathered on Jan. 23 for a send-off dinner for the Illinois delegation to Team USA. The K.H. Kim Taekwando group dazzled the audience with their skill. At the end of their demonstration, one member nearly touched the ceiling as he leaped up and kicked open a big paper ball! A banner unfurled, wishing the Illinois athletes good luck at World Games. What a great send-off surprise!
