District Vocational Service Seminar

On January 7, President Mark attended District Vocational Service Seminar, hosted by our good friends at Rotary Club of Peninsula. The star speaker was Mr. Wong Kam Po (黃金寶), world champion cyclist and arguably one of Hong Kong’s greatest sporting icons at the turn of the century. Mr. Wong shared his upbringing, from a Shatin boy in a middle-class family to a cycling world champion, and all the frustration, tears, and hard work in between. Now fully retired from competitive cycling, Mr. Wong is devoting his energy and time promoting cycling and sports in general, and encouraging youngsters to chase their dreams by using his life’s history as guidepost. He is also spending a lot of time promoting Sports Legacy Scheme, a government-sanctioned scheme to help both student athletes and elite athletes who either are planning to retire or have retired to continue their involvement in sports by turning them into sports teachers so that they can continue teaching and spreading the positive values of sports and the spirit of olympism.
