Team & Tim Klassen
Thanks for a great and professional looking site. I would,
however, like to echo the sentiments of Tim Klassen (Team
Manager - Team Canada) : where are the results? At least a
listing of the medal standings would be nice. I know the South
African team are proud of our 18 medals from a team of 18
athletes. Tim - beat that if you can!! ;-) I think it would
be nice to compare against other countries to see how we all
did and to set our sites for the next games in Japan.
Thanks again, webbies,
(badminton, golf, 5km walk veterans)

on the web-site and the coverage of the World Transplant Games.
These were my first games and I had a great time. It is wonderful
to be able to look back on the many memories which we will
have for a lifetime! I'm looking forward to my second games
in Kobe, Japan. See you there.

Thanks very much for all your contributions. It was great
having you all there and the site is fantastic. I`ve told
just about everyone I know to log on, but just one thing....the
UK team did a chant at the pool, but I can`t find it!! Any
help please!! A BIG hello to Team USA, Argentina, Uruguay,
Germany, France and literally anyone else who was there. Thanks
again for all your hard work - see you in Kobe
Lots of love

note to thank you for all your great work at the games. Your
site has captured all the sites and sounds of a great tournement
of life and laughter. Attached is a memory of mine at the

great photographs and memories.

the gang at Transweb and to all the participants in Budapest
It is now post-games and I am back in Toronto and back at
the office. Just taking a little re-visit to the Games via
the site and wanted to express my thanks and congratulations
to everyone involved - the athletes, supporters, and the Transweb
people. You all were winners and a real joy to deal with and
be around. My only problem is that I cannot access any results
via the webpage. Any ideas or suggestions?

to wish all the athletes in Budapest 'Good Luck!' My Mum (Jean
Roberts) is representing Great Britain in her first World
Games and we are all delighted and very proud of her achievements.
Unfortunately, the media here choose not to cover such a worthy
event and so it is only through Transweb that we can experience
some of the fun and excitement which is taking place in Hungary.
So keep up the good work Transweb and Good Luck to the 'Auld
Yin' in the swimming!

congratulations athletes! I just received a single lung transplant
on January 31, 1999, and hope that I too can compete in the
Transplant Olympics being held in Orlando, Florida. I do know
that if I can't compete by then, that I will definitely be
there as a spectator to cheer you all on! After all, you are
all winners! Best Wishes,

I wish we could have come this year, but a move from Mn. to
Ky. prevented it. We will be with you in Orlando & Chiba,
Japan, God willing. Go Transweb!!!!

finally find your site - there isn't a link form the NKF page
to you but the office let me know your URL - maybe you can
get them to put a link up so others can find you. Keep up
the great work. How about some pics of our U.S. team and individual
athletes - I didn't see any coverage of them in the Opening
Ceremonies collection. And a BIG Hi to TeamSoCal!!!! Cheers,

It is now 20:15 hours, September 6, 1999, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan,
Canada, and I just logged onto the website. What a great idea
to transport information on the games to everyone (or at least
everyone who has a computer and an internet connection). Good
luck to all the participants and a special good luck to all
those representing Canada. For all those Canadian football
fans, Hamilton defeated Montreal, Saskatchewan defeated Winnipeg,
and, Edmonton defeated Calgary (a free gift from Calgary who
refused to kick a field goal to tie the game, but, instead
chose to gamble at the one yard line on the last play of the
game, and, guess what, they blew it).

to raise awareness of the need for donors. Your photographers
seem to have the gift of capturing the spirit of both the
Games and the generosity of the Hungarian people.

Bonjour les Suisses, Bonjour le reste du monde, Je voudrais
tout d'abord souhaiter à vous TOUS plein de succès aux athlètes
ainsi qu'aux organisateurs de ces Jeux mondiaux. J'espère
que vous rapporterez beaucoup de médailles dans le pays. Je
penserai tous les jours à vous en vous tenant les pouces et
regarderai tous les jours vos prouesses et vos résultats sur
le net. Donnez-moi de vos nouvelles par e-mail si vous le
pouvez. Donnez-moi également la date et l'heure de votre retour
à Zurich. Peut-être que je viendrai vous réceptionner (si
vous ne rentrez pas au compte-goutte!!). Envoyez-moi des messages
car j'ai déjà des remords de ne pas être venu avec vous. Alors
à bientôt par e-mail et le bonjour à toute l'équipe. Suzanne

Hi to all
aussies in Budapest for the Transplant Games... Best of luck
in all your relevent sporting events, we saw the opening ceremony
on the web, looks like the weather was kind and everyone had
a ball. As we will be logging into the website each day, please
give us a wave if you can
To the Jones family from Sydney ...... we saw Brett holding
the Australian banner Good luck to all and our best wishes

to everyone there at the World Games. Through Transweb's efforts
we back home are able to follow you over there and I must
say feel like we are missing out on a really fun filled event
by not being there in person. The opening ceremonies' music
and dancing (not to mention the home town hospitality) looks
and sounds wonderful (through the sight and sounds of the
Transweb website). Have a really great Games. The service
you are doing in educating the world of the success of the
organ transplant process can be measured in the lives saved
through the increased donations that follow you. Keep up the
good work, Ellie, Bob, and the whole web team - we are depending
on you and I have to say, the first day's efforts are wonderful....

all in Budapest! I just finished listening to the "Parade
of Athletes" and the "Opening Ceremonies Address" and I have
to say it made my eyes misty. I felt like I was there and
I was really wishing I was. These are the first games I have
missed since Singapore, due to circumstances unrelated to
health, and when my Canadian Team members were preparing to
go it was heartbreaking. But to be able to read the updates
and to listen to events is just fantastic. A job well done
to all of you. I am looking forward to each days events and
feeling like I am there with everyone. Keep up the good work
and if you see a crazy Canuck please say hi for me and good
