An epic journey to the Competition

Angelo Xiang Yu, winner of the Senior 1st Prize in Oslo 2010, experienced the journey of a lifetime to arrive in time to compete through the chaos of the Icelandic volcano eruption in April 2010.

After a few days on tenterhooks waiting in Reykjavik Angelo made it to Trondheim by flying in the cockpit of an Iceland Air flight and then took an overnight bus to Oslo to arrive just in time to perform in the first round, and he then went on to win the Senior 1st Prize!
