DAVID GILBERT DRIVING A TRACTOR!

UK-China Sports Photo Exhibition

A special exhibition of sports photography was staged today in Beijing, marking the 50th anniversary of the establishment of ambassadorial diplomatic relations between the UK and China.

The UK-China Sports Photo Exhibition was organised by the UK Department for International Trade, with the intention to reflect on cooperation between the UK and China on sporting events, athletes and business stories, and look ahead to further cooperation in the future. Tom Duke, Deputy HM Trade Commissioner to China, attended the exhibition and made a short speech.

Several images from snooker events were included in the exhibition, including pictures from Ding Junhui’s victories at the China Open and UK Championship in 2005, as well as Ronnie O’Sullivan’s meeting with Liang Wenbo at the 2009 Shanghai Masters, and Yan Bingtao’s success at the 2021 Masters.
