A delegation from the Hong Kong Olympic Committee may visit Beijing in June. It is understood that A. de O. Sales, president of the Amateur Sports Federation and Olympic Committee, will lead a group to Beijing for talks with their Chinese counterparts. Hong Kong Olympic officials yesterday refused to comment, but it is believed plans are under way for Sales to lead a delegation to Beijing before the handover. Talks are expected to revolve around the territory's name in sporting events after the handover. While Hong Kong is guaranteed sporting autonomy after July, it is still unclear whether the territory will continue to be referred to as Hong Kong or fall in line with China's demands and change their title to Hong Kong, China. Meanwhile, China re-affirmed Hong Kong's post-handover autonomy during a meeting of National Olympic Committee heads in Pusan. Vivien Fung, of the Hong Kong delegation, said a leading Chinese sports official, who she declined to name, re-assured representatives Hong Kong would continue to enjoy separate sporting status. 'He told the guests that Hong Kong would be autonomous and that China cannot interfere with the Hong Kong Olympic Committee,' said Fung. The official also said that Sales would remain as Hong Kong's Olympic chief. He said China does not have the authority to question Hong Kong's sporting leadership.
