    News Content

    • Two days before the consultation on whether Hong Kong should bid for 2023 Asian Games end, a group of Hong Kong top athletes, led by cycling gold medalist Wong Kam-po showed their support for the Asian Games 2023 bid. They believed the Games would help improve facilities and raise morale of local talent.
    • Cyclist Wong Wan-yiu, who won the silver-medal while cycling with her broken rib, said hosting the games would encourage many athletes and help improve sports facilities. 

    Questions

    • Hong Kong was deeply moved by Wong Wan-yiu’s sportsmanship. We all took pride of her determination. But without a fair sports policy, it is hard to say the games will benefit to all athletes, and without a change in the institutions, it is hard to say the game will benefit the community as a whole.
