Exhibition on Olympic Games extends to August 20
*************************************************


Due to a favourable response, an exhibition on the Olympic Games being staged at the arcade (adjacent to the indoor pools) at Kowloon Park will be extended until August 20 to let more people know about the Games.

The exhibition, entitled "Two-year Countdown to the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games - Exhibition on Olympic Games", which is co-ordinated by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has run from 9am to 9pm daily since August 6. Admission is free.

An LCSD spokesman said, "As those who have gone to the exhibition found it interesting and informative, we have decided to run the exhibition until August 20, enabling more people to have the opportunity to go to the exhibition and learn about the Olympic Games."

The exhibition panels feature a brief introduction to the Olympic Games, 28 Olympic summer sports, achievements and highlights of the National Teams of China and Hong Kong Teams in the previous Games and the preparation for the equestrian events.

The history of the Olympics on video and the footage of China and Hong Kong athletes winning medals will be shown.

Visitors will be able to use the computer kiosks installed at the exhibition to surf for information on the Beijing Olympics, the 2009 East Asian Games and related websites.

Olympic memorabilia, such as mascots, first day covers and pins, will also be displayed.
