Veteran Wong Kam-po is training hard to make his Olympic dream come true Veteran cyclist Wong Kam-po is grasping every precious moment to be well-prepared to clinch the Olympics crown and complete his world-class competition gold medal collection. The achievements of Wong, 35, have not declined with age, as with many other athletes. In contrast, he is in top condition and claimed victory at both the World Championships and World Cup recently. According to his coach Shen Jikang, Wong is very fit and this year provides a golden chance for him to complete his Olympic dream. Wong is a hot favourite for Hong Kong's second Olympics gold medal. The opponents in Beijing will be no strangers to Wong, but he has not slackened. He has looked at the videos of past Olympics and hopes to find out a pattern. He would analyse every opponent and think of a strategy for each of them. Wong came sixth at a test event held in Beijing in January. Although he is expected to finish in the top 10 at the Olympics, his real aim is the gold medal. Wong will be taking part in his fourth Olympics in the mainland capital. 'I do not consider it as my last Olympics. I enjoy competitions and if I am allowed, I would like to compete for Hong Kong until I'm 40,' said Wong. 'I'd like to set a good example for young cyclists and try my best to help them.' Wong ran the last leg of the Hong Kong Olympics torch relay earlier this month. 'It was a great honour to be part of the torch relay, but I was especially proud to be the last torch-bearer,' Wong said. It has given him greater motivation to fight for the gold medal in Beijing. 'I felt really emotional when I held the torch and lit the cauldron,' said Wong. Shen said Wong's training was geared towards winning a medal in Beijing. In order to familiarise himself with the Olympics circuit, Wong is negotiating with mainland officials to let him and another Beijing-bound female local rider, Wong Wan-yiu, to train at the Olympics velodrome. 'It looks promising,' said Shen. 'We hope to have the training stint in Beijing later this month or next month. The sooner we get there to train, the better results we are going to achieve.'
