Trevor Lunn MLA said: “This is great news that a second Olympic team has decided to train in Northern Ireland ahead of the Games. Hopefully we will see more international sport stars train here. I hope that this announcement will inspire local children to one day be Olympic stars themselves.
“It is great news for Lisburn both in terms of the money that it will put into the local economy and by the relations that it will create with China.
” I have no doubt that local people will show our renowned hospitality to these athletes and make them feel at home.”
