The Chinese Olympic heroes will be parading in Hong Kong from Saturday 29th, after they went to Chengdu to support the victims of the recent earthquake. They will then go on to Macau, where they will also give match exhibitions. Some local politicians have voiced their concern that this tour from Chinese athletes back from the Games will bring a rise in Chinese nationalism a few days before some local elections where the pro-Beijing party might benefit from the Olympic spirit and win the elections.

The Chinese athletes, including Zhang Ning and Lin Dan, will be giving a match exhibition on Saturday 30th at 10:30 in Hong Kong’s Kowloon Park’s Center.
