Veteran cyclist Wong Kam-po is gearing up to be a star at his fifth Olympics - and a young fan inspired by his fighting spirit tried to give Wong another stellar honour. Henry Tsang Chun-man, a Primary Three pupil, was the judge's choice of winner in a Commercial Press competition to name an asteroid. He picked the cyclist after seeing his medal-winning performances on TV. 'I have drawn Wong Kam-po cycling his way to the little star and many aliens are welcoming him,' Henry said. 'When I see him on television, I think he has an undaunted spirit. I think he's excellent, so I chose him.' The nine-year-old does not have sporting ambitions of his own but wants to become an academic, studying space - although he still sees Wong as an inspiration. Wong, 39, has won international honours including three individual road-race gold medals in the Asian Games and was the first Chinese cyclist to win the 15 kilometre scratch race at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Spain in 2007. He will participate in Saturday's road race, one of the first events at the Games after the opening ceremony on Friday, and plans to carry on competing for Hong Kong after he turns 40. Unfortunately for Wong, he was not the overall winner of the star-naming competition and wil not be lending his name to asteroid 26738, discovered by local astronomer Bill Yeung Kwong-yu in 2001. Wong was pipped at the finishing line when the decision was put to a vote of 200 of the 800 primary school children who took part in the competition. The winner was Li Shichen, a Chinese herbalist of the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), who classified herbs in the epic Compendium of Materia Medica. His name was put forward by 11-year-old Angel Poon Hiu-ping, who said the herbalist had made a great contribution to Chinese medicine and saved many lives. Yeung has discovered more than 2,000 astronomical objects since 1999.
