HK marathon gets 'M' Mark

The Major Sports Events Committee today announced that it has awarded the "M" Mark status to the 25th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon to be held on February 12.   The committee's Chairman Wilfred Ng said the event will add colour and vibrancy to Hong Kong, like all other "M" Mark events.   “The 'M' Mark events showcase Hong Kong's capability to host world-class events and enhance Hong Kong's position as a centre for major international sports activities.   “These events also allow the general public to enjoy and participate in high-level competitions and nurture a sustainable sporting culture in the community,” he added.   Launched in 2004, the "M" Mark system aims to help local national sports associations organise more major international sports events and nurture them into sustainable undertakings. http://dlvr.it/Sj0HBF

HK to scale new heights

A new year represents new beginnings. Having gone through an exceptionally challenging year, we all look forward to a fresh start in the new year. This year, because of the epidemic, the Government urges members of the public to reduce gatherings and enjoy a quiet Spring Festival. Yet, with technology bringing people closer together, we can extend festive greetings to relatives and friends living here and abroad and express our care for senior family members and citizens through various means.       This year is the Year of the Ox. The ox is a symbol of diligence and perseverance. I believe that as long as we stand united and work together with perseverance, Hong Kong can certainly rise above all challenges, emerge stronger and scale new heights.       I wish you all a harmonious, auspicious and healthy Year of the Ox.   This is the translation of the Lunar New Year message delivered by Chief Executive Carrie Lam on February 11.
