SIX local bodies have joined specialised training programmes initiated by the Hong Kong Sports Institute for next year's major multi-sport events. The windsurfing, fencing, badminton, judo, gymnastic and physically-disabled associations will be given use of the Institute's facilities and technical expertise in their quest for honours at next year's Commonwealth Games in Canada and the Asian Games inHiroshima, Japan. Institute chief executive Paul Brettell said wushu, cycling and canoeing are also interested in joining the programme and he called on more associations to make use of the scheme. The programme is made possible by a $100 million Government donation. ''The programmes have only just started, but have been very successful,'' Brettell said. ''The money is now available for us. It is a very good initiative, which gives us the opportunity to do the things we always wanted to do for the major games. ''I hope more associations look to joining the programme when they see the benefits.'' Brettell has repeatedly said that next year's two major games should not be for athletes looking to gain international experience. He said Hong Kong should be looking to win medals. In the past, money, or the lack of it, was used as an excuse. But he feels sport in Hong Kong is now adequately served in terms of finance. ''The only problem is the time factor,'' said Brettell. ''Money is not the issue. ''There is not the time nor the culture for athletes to pursue sport in Hong Kong, though it is gradually changing for the good. '' Meanwhile, the Institute have made two appointments as they edge closer to integration with the Sports Development Board. Former Hong Kong athlete Simon Tse has been appointed coach development manager and he will be assisted by new development officer Kenneth Liang. Tse and Liang will be working under new technical director Dennis Whitby, formerly director of coach development at the SDB. ''Both Tse and Liang are qualified physical education teachers with wide-ranging coaching qualifications and experience,'' Whitby said. ''Improving the level of coaching is vital to the future of sport in the territory.''
