Hong Kong fans are in for a treat with five teams bound for the Olympic Games stopping over for acclimatisation and a series of warm-up matches before heading for Beijing. The Great Britain men and women, the New Zealand men and women as well as the Canadian men's squad, will train in Hong Kong and play among themselves, as well as against the Hong Kong national teams in the next few weeks. 'We will get the chance to watch some top-quality players,' said Sarinder Dillon, president of the Hong Kong Hockey Association.
