Item description for The Quest for Gold: Fifty Years of Amateur Sports in Hong Kong, 1947-1997 by S. F. Lam...

This is the first comprehensive record of amateur sports in Hong Kong. It tracks Hong Kong's sports pioneers through the early days of club and university sports, to the establishment of the Amateur Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, to Hong Kong's first participation in the Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games, and eventually to winning gold in the Olympic Games, as well as recent developments.

Interspersed in the text are historical documents and photos, anecdotes, personal success stories, and reports. The invaluable efforts of individuals and groups to promote and participate in amateur sports in Hong Kong, and the encouragement their example gives to athletes after them, are all recounted here. This is the story of Hong Kong's quest for gold.
