    Many a year ago I competed there in inter-school competitions. Will be a damn shame to lose - especially to use a trivial 'concept'. By all means, revamp and upgrade. But I hold very little hope for this 'trendy and novel' replacement (which no doubt comes with lots of lovely new offices and/or unaffordable flats above)

    You 're never wrong, are you? Even when it's in black and white. You're now twisting to say a sports ground isn't a sports ground unless it has an athletics track?

    That's the common theme for sports ground designated by the LCSD.

    Leisure and Cultural Services Department

    It's also part of the original story.


    The Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association said on Wednesday that it was "shocked, disappointed and most concerned" about the government's plan to demolish the Wan Chai Sports Ground, warning that it will have a "devastating and long-lasting effect" on the development of the athletics in Hong Kong.

    You're an impressive troll. Even if you were talking about athletics only, which has you clearly weren't - there are two existing much closer athletics tracks any rational person in Central would choose over a sclepp out to Kai Tak.
