On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to extend my warmest welcome to all fencers and officials for participating in the IWAS Asian Wheelchair Fencing Championships 2016.
We are delighted that around 70 athletes and officials from 9 countries and territories are in Hong Kong taking part in this Asian wheelchair fencing event. Fencers are going to strive for excellence as gold medalists of individual events will gain a place in the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, which will definitely be an exciting moment to be remembered. The Organizing Committee is endeavored to facilitate the best competition platform for athletes to perform their best in the 4-days competitions.
The hosting of the IWAS Asian Wheelchair Fencing Championships 2016 would not be possible without the enthusiastic support from the Hong Kong Government and Hong Kong Fencing Association, as well as the local community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all supporting organizations, technical officials, and volunteers for their contributions and commitment to ensure the success of the event.
I wish all the participants best of luck in the competitions and a memorable stay in Hong Kong.
