Winning praise from the very top

The following is issued on behalf of the 2009 East Asian Games (HK) Ltd.:

     The President of the International Olympic Committee, Count Jacques Rogge, had nothing but praise for the way Hong Kong had organised the Opening Ceremony of the Hong Kong 2009 East Asian Games.

     After witnessing the spectacular opening ceremony at Victory Harbour on Saturday night, Count Rogge said he would rate it as one of the best opening ceremonies he had seen, "I have seen many opening ceremonies in my long career with the Olympics.  And this deserves a gold medal."

     "It was an absolutely smashing and brilliant opening, very nice choreography, very original, creative, and probably the nicest backdrop you can ever dream of." He was speaking as a guest at the "China Night", a cultural programme of the East Asian Games.
