The schoolchildren from Taoyuan's Chuwei Elementary School were thrilled to meet their NBA hoops hero, and felt it was a dream come true playing basketball with Lin, China Airlines said.
China Airlines has been regularly sending its pilots and flight attendants to the school to teach English and conduct various activities in line with its commitment to help local communities. The Lin event was a special summer arrangement for the Chuwei kids to have fun at China Airlines' facilities at Taipei's Songshan Airport.
Lin arrived in Taiwan from San Francisco on a China Airlines flight on Aug. 14 for an eight-day visit. Taiwan is the first stop of his tour of Asia.
