Another Hong Kong Sports Stars Award was pocketed by the men’s sevens squad on Monday night. It was another feather in the cap for rugby but how I wish the accolades were handed out for winning a gold medal at the Asian Games.
The world's second largest multi-sports event, the Asian Games, will start on Friday, September 19, in Incheon, South Korea. The 16-day extravaganza will bring together nearly 10,000 athletes in the biggest sporting event next to the Olympics. A total of 439 gold medals will be up for grabs in 36 sports, including all 28 at the Summer Olympics, with China overwhelming favourites to again dominate the Asiad.
