Let's start with a question today. What do you think of sports diplomats - you know, those people who like wearing white blazers and going to events such as the Olympics, but don't seem to actually do very much? Hong Kong's one and only Winter Olympics competitor - a short track speed skater if that means anything to you - has just returned from Sochi having failed to qualify in the preliminaries of his event. He has spoken to local media, and points out that there were no less than six 'officials' from the Hong Kong Sports Federation & Olympic Committee riding the gravy train in Russia. Six? Holding one speed skater's hand? (and apparently they didn't even do that). Here's my question: so how is the money being divvied out? Competitors, or Officials? And is anyone aware of anything similar in other sports - like, a little closer to home? Food for thought.
