What about Brazil? Both Olympic Games and World Cup in a few years--time to samba. If they also get 2020 EXPO, it will be like a grand slam. But hey, Guangzhou is bidding for 2020 EXPO too, let's hope Guangzhou can win it despite that 2010 EXPO is held in China.

50,000 students invited to Asian Games
11 August 2010
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

Less than 100 days from the opening of 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, the Guangzhou Asian Games Organizing Committee (GAGOC) on Tuesday extended an invitation to 50,000 Hong Kong students to come and see the games.

"The idea is, Hong Kong students can come to Guangzhou to watch competitions on weekends when they don't have classes," said Fang Daer, director of marketing of the GAGOC. The Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong will meet with schools to discuss how the 50,000 complimentary tickets should be distributed, said Secretary General Peng Chung.

Incentives are being dangled before Hong Kong athletes. The GAGOC says it will give any Hong Kong athlete who sets a world record at the games a diamond worth 100,000 yuan. An Asian record breaker will be awarded a diamond worth 50,000 yuan.

The 16th Guangzhou Asian Games are scheduled from November 12 to 27. Preparations have entered the final stages. Organizers say all venues will be ready no later than the end of September.

The largest ever Hong Kong delegation of over 500 athletes will compete in 34 sports at this year's Asian Games, according to Peng.

Peng believes many Hong Kong sports fans will want to see the competitions in person, since the two cities are just across the water from one another. He predicted ticket sales will be strong.

Ji Lei, deputy administration manager of the Ticketing Division of the GAGOC estimated that about 90,000 tickets, accounting for about 3 percent of the total, will be allocated for sale to Hong Kong fans. He stressed the amount is to be adjusted according to the demand.

The price range goes from 10 to 400 yuan, except for A-level tickets for the finals in badminton and basketball, which are 600 yuan, Ji said.

The tickets will be sold by China Travel Service (HK) Limited (CTS). The agent has already designed different packages, including Asian Games tickets, accommodation and tourism attractions, said Chen Wenjie, director and deputy general manager of CTS.

Most Hong Kong people probably are unaware that public sales of Asian Games tickets already has reached the end of the second round. Ji noted that sales were good and nearly 10 percent of the total available tickets were already sold. The second round of sales limited to the opening and closing ceremony will close on August 15. Tickets may be ordered through the official ticketing website, with final distribution determined by lottery.

China eyes dominance in athletics at Asian Games
10 August 2010
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

BEIJING - Chinese Athletics Administrative Center chief Feng Shuyong has vowed the national team will continue its dominance at the Asian Games by topping the medal tally and the overall rankings in November.

"The goal is to be No 1. That's for sure," Feng said in Shandong on Sunday at the close of the National Athletics Championships, which also served as the national qualifiers for the upcoming Asian Games in Guangzhou.

China's athletics team has topped the medal tally at the continental event since the 1986 Seoul Games. It finished 14 gold medals ahead of the second-place nation at the 2006 Doha Games, just as it did four years earlier in Busan.

Feng also said China is assembling a 70-member team from the results of the national championships.

"The top two finishers in every event here are eligible for the Asian Games. But that does not mean they have locked up tickets to Guangzhou because we may not send athletes to some events that we are not good at," said Feng, who is also the head coach of the national squad.

Former world champion Liu Xiang, who is still nursing a foot injury, did not take part in Shandong. However, he is still expected to compete in Guangzhou.

Another star name expected to represent China at the Asian Games is Bai Xue, the reigning marathon world champion who won a gold medal at the 2009 Berlin World Championships.

"Like what bothered us in previous Olympic Games, we don't have many world-class athletes," Feng said, "As a result, we have to continue pinning our hopes on key players."

Athletes to get cleaner air
17 August 2010
China Daily - Hong Kong Edition

GUANGZHOU - Guangzhou is using a variety of high-tech measures to ensure air quality is up to scratch for the upcoming Asian Games.

As of September 1, owners of large-sized vehicles, such as limousines, are ordered to use the highest national standard of gasoline, which pollutes less.

The city's environmental protection bureau has set up 29 checkpoints to monitor automobile emissions along with four mobile units. Since August 1, the bureau has also carried out checks on vehicles' emission control systems to make sure they are working correctly.

About 30 percent of the total 9,300 government cars and the city's police officers' cars will be off the road from October 12 to December 22, in order to decrease pollution emissions, said Li Zhuo, director of the motor pollution control office, Guangzhou environmental protection bureau.

Meanwhile, all construction sites in the city, except those with special authorization, will be asked to stop building from the end of September to the end of December, said Zhang Guangning, secretary of Guangzhou Party committee.

In November, the city usually registers its worst air quality due to the colder weather, which makes it more difficult to monitor pollution.

Jian Jianyang, director of the pollution control division at the environmental protection bureau, said factories that pollute excessively will have to limit their production during the Games and will not be allowed to return to normal production levels until December 20.

The highly-polluted capital of Guangdong province began to look into improving its air quality after it won its bid to host the 16th Asian Games in July 2004.

"It's not just an emergency package to limit the air pollution," said Jian. "It's a long-term measure and we see the Games as an opportunity to achieve it quicker."
