Trying, trying, flying - If at first you don't succeed . . . eight-year-old Tong Ho-man demonstrates his determination as he joined more than 2,500 people at yesterday's kite-flying day at the Hong Kong Sports Institute in Sha Tin.

The event featured demonstrations by instructors of kites depicting traditional images such as dragons, fish, centipedes and swallows. After taking part in kite-making workshops, participants had the opportunity to send their own kites skywards, and trophies were presented to those with the most imaginative designs.
