The HKSI hosted the Open Day and the International Exchange Forum on Preparing Athletes for the 2016 Rio Olympics, sponsored by Mr Ming Wai Lau, on the second day of a two-day celebration marking the completion of the HK$1.8 billion Government-funded HKSI Redevelopment Project. The opening ceremony for the activities was officiated by Mrs Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor GBS JP, Chief Secretary for Administration of the HKSAR Government, in the presence of dozens of experts on elite training and scientific support from around the region and hundreds more sports supporters from the local community.
The Open Day offered the public an opportunity to visit Hong Kong's high performance training centre and better understand the dedication and commitment of Hong Kong’s elite sports stars through a series of exhibitions, demonstrations and talks. The public was also invited to join organised tours of the state-of-the-art training facilities at the HKSI and to try their hand in various sports. Details
