1998 Department News

Philip Waldron, an M.Sc. student in the department of Physics and Astronomy, has just returned from a trip to Japan, where he competed in the World Championships in Pairs team GO. He and his team partner (Jean Waldron, his mother) lost their first game to a Japanese team, but won all their remaining games to win the "Foreign Minister's Cup", ahead of all the Western nations. They beat teams from U.S., Germany, Ukraine and Australia, and in claiming the Foreign Minister's Cup have advanced further than any previous Canadian pairs team in GO. They will be eligible to return to the World Championships next year, if they successfully defend their Canadian national title next year.

Congratulations to team Waldron on this impressive achievement.
