Tokyo Olympics: One China, three flags - Beijing's pursuit of Olympic dominance ramps up

Tokyo: As China won the first of its four Olympic gold medals on Friday, President Xi Jinping was addressing a politburo meeting in Beijing.
The meeting’s goal was to discuss modernising China’s military, a long-held ambition of the Chinese leader.
“We should do a good job in arming officers and soldiers with the thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics and ensure that the army is absolutely loyal, pure and reliable,” he said. “A strong country must have a strong military. Only a strong military can ensure national security.”

Can Olympics medalists afford a flat in Olympic station? EJINSIGHT

They won Tokyo Olympics medals, but they might not afford a flat at the Olympic station.
Olympics gold medalist and fencing king Cheung Ka-long and swim queen Siobhan Haughey with two silver medals manage to reach the top of the sports world, but they might have trouble keeping up with the escalating home price in Hong Kong.
Right, Cheung and Haughey would get HK$5 million each as special bonus, thanks to Henderson Land. Cheung would receive another HK$2.5 million from a charitable foundation of Lam Tai-fai, Hong Kong Sports Institute chairman.
That would put Cheung on par with the other Asian winners, most notably heavy weight champion Hidilyn Diaz, who took home around 52 million pesos (US$1.04 million) for winning the first-ever gold medal for the Philippines.

Olympic success gives Hong Kong an emotional lift in hard times


Jul 31, 2021
The light red flag with the five-petaled bauhinia flower does not represent a country. But Hong Kong, the Chinese territory where political and civil rights have been battered in recent months, is enjoying its strongest-ever showing at the Tokyo Olympics, capturing gold in fencing and two silvers in swimming.
The three-medal haul is the first time that Hong Kong, which was returned to Chinese rule by the British in 1997, captured more than a single medal at the Olympics. On Friday, swimmer Siobhan Haughey won her second silver of the Games, in the women’s 100-meter freestyle, following a victory in the 200-meter freestyle event Wednesday.

Hong Konger gets 9 years jail in first national security case
The former waiter is the first person to be convicted under the controversial national security law. He isn't the only one falling foul of Hong Kong's tightened grip on civil liberties.
Tong Ying-kit is the first person jailed under Hong Kong's controversial National Security Law
Judges in Hong Kong sentenced on Friday the first person convicted under the controversial national security law in a watershed ruling that will have long-term implications for the city's judicial landscape.
The legislation was passed as part of a prolonged government clampdown on Hong Kong's mass pro-democracy movement. But critics argue that the measure has been used to restrict civil liberties.

Hong Kong jails man, 24, for nine years under national security law


protest slogan “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times”.
The incident took place on 1 July 2020, less than 24 hours after the national security law was enacted, as thousands of Hongkongers took to the streets in protest and were met with a heavy police response. Tong maintained the collision was accidental.
In sentencing, the judges found his crimes to be serious and secessionist in nature and not mitigated by his status as breadwinner for his family, or his remorse, given he had pleaded not guilty.
“We consider that this overall term should sufficiently reflect the defendant’s culpability in the two offences and the abhorrence of society, at the same time, achieving the deterrent effect required,” the sentencing said.

Our athletes-Hong Kong's glory EJINSIGHT


A Hongkonger
July 29, 2021 10:11
A historic Olympic Games it indeed has been – the first Summer Olympics to have been postponed by a whole year; the first to have been held during a worldwide pandemic, with masks adorned and social distancing measures adopted for the opening ceremony; the first in which Bermuda and the Philippines won a gold medal, and where Turkmenistan won their first ever medal.
‘Tis also one of the – if not the – best-performing Olympics for Team Hong Kong. Whether it be the fencing legend Cheung Ka-long (Gold), the dexterous and incredible swimmer Siobhan Haughey (Silver), or, indeed, the many who – whilst less favoured by the Gods of fortune and having narrowly missed out on the sweet prizes – are no less talented and deserving of recognition as their peers. Hong Kong’s athletes have done us proud – they’re certainly stars in our eyes.

Bermuda
The Atlantic island of only 65,000 people ― they could all fit into the Olympic Stadium in Tokyo ― has its first gold medalist after Flora Duffy won the women's triathlon on Tuesday. She is one of only two athletes representing the self-governing British territory at the Tokyo Games. Duffy had to put up with wind and driving rain to win her gold as a storm moved up the Japanese coast. ''I was Bermuda's first medal hope in many years. I wanted to achieve this for myself and my country. I was overwhelmed,'' she said.
