The people of Hong Kong also love the Olympic Games. A subway station has its walls decorated with paintings of all the city's Olympians and sports stars as a way of commending their achievements. They include Lee Lai-shan, Hong Kong's first gold medal winner for sail boarding at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games, Lee Wai Sze, the bronze medalist for women's track cycling at the London Olympic Games, as well as cyclist Wong Kam-po, two-time gold medalist at the Asian Games.
