It's up to you to choose to speak out, or to remain silent. And in the case of Hong Kong cycling coach Shen Jinkang, he has opted to listen to his masters, the Hong Kong Cycling Association, which has told him not to talk to the media. Why has he been muzzled? Because some members of the HKCA executive committee felt the mainlander was too liberal and open with his views.
