[quote]The 2009 World Games will open July 16 with the ceremonial passing of the flag by two German-Taiwanese brothers living in Taiwan. The passing of the flag symbolizes the passing on of the sporting spirit to Taiwan from Germany, the host of the last World Games in 2005, according to the Kaohsiung Organizing Committee.
The German boys, born to a German father and a Taiwanese mother, live in Sindian City in Taipei County. The older brother, Albert Gesk, is a sixth grader at Shuang Fong Elementary School in Sindian while the younger one, Emil, is a second-grader.
Both boys were born and raised in Taiwan and are being educated in the local school system. They speak Chinese better than they speak German. Both said that they like Taiwan.
Apart from their participation in the World Games opening ceremony, the most exciting aspect of their mission is the trip to southern Taiwan for some fun activities, they said.
