Some of the Sri Lanka sportsmen and women who have already completed their events will return home from today. But don’t be surprised if any Sri Lanka sportsman or woman writes their names in a few crooked Chinese characters when you request an autograph on their return to Colombo after the Guangzhou Asian Games.
Even the majority members of the 143-member Sri Lanka contingent who are still here, competing in their respective disciplines, have a good volume of fans. Several of them write a word or two in Chinese when local fans request them to autograph. That is because of some basic Chinese they have mastered during their stay at the Athletes Village.
