Time is running out for Wong Kam-po to gain precious access to the Olympic track venue in Beijing as he chases points race honours. Hong Kong coach Shen Jinkang said yesterday he was negotiating with mainland officials for both the veteran rider and Wong Wan-yiu, who has qualified for the points race in the women's field, to train at the Olympic velodrome prior to the Games. 'It looks promising,' said Shen. 'Wong is a popular athlete in China and they welcome us. But there are some details that have to be sorted out such as security and allocation of usage time as the China team will be training there as well. 'The sooner we can get there to train, the better the result we are going to achieve.' Shen said Wong's training was geared towards a medal in Beijing, and it would boost his chances considerably if he could familiarise himself with the Olympic circuit. 'We hope to make the training stint in Beijing later this month or next month, depending on when we can obtain approval,' said Shen. 'It will be impossible to conduct any training there from July as they need to close down the venue for the final preparation work for the Games.' Wong (pictured), who will be racing in his fourth Olympics, was still in high spirits after wrapping up the Hong Kong leg of the Olympic torch relay last week. 'It was a great honour to be part of the torch relay, but I was especially proud to be the last torch-bearer,' said Wong, who resumed his preparation for the Beijing Games in Longgang yesterday. 'I felt really moved when I held the torch and lit the cauldron.'
