HKBU student breaks four records in Hong Kong Powerlifting Championships

浸大學生打破香港健力錦標賽四項紀錄

Wong Man-ting (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 4) recently won the championship title in the female junior group at the Hong Kong Powerlifting Championships and broke four records – Squat, Bench press and Deadlift in Female 57 KG Junior Group and Squat in Female Open Group.
 
Powerlifting is not a popular sport among women. Man-ting did not take part in this sport until she studied at HKBU. She gained professional guidance from schoolmates which significantly improved her performance and gradually raised her interest in powerlifting. “From powerlifting, I can understand my limits and think of ways to achieve a breakthrough,” she said. To gauge her level of strength, she took part in the competition and has had intensive and focused training for a period of three months before the competition began.
 
This was the very first time Man-ting joined the Hong Kong Powerlifting Championships organised by the Hong Kong Weightlifting and Powerlifting Association. She was excited and happy about her performance and sincerely thanked her schoolmates for their encouragement and guidance which has motivated her to keep on advancing in the sport. 
 
Man-ting is planning to turn her passion for powerlifting into a career and is working hard to become a teacher or trainer upon her graduation. 
 

黃敏婷(體育及康樂管理四年級)在香港健力錦標賽2016打破四項紀錄,包括女子57公斤青年組賽事的蹲舉、臥推舉及硬舉項目,以及女子公開組的蹲舉,更勇奪女子青年組總冠軍。
 
健力運動較少女性參與,而敏婷因為入讀浸大後,到大學運動館健身時,得到體育學系同學的指導,改善表現,漸漸喜歡舉重運動,她說:「從舉重中,我可以了解自己的限制,再思考如何突破自己。」為了了解個人實力,敏婷遂報名參加比賽,並於比賽前三個月開始積極備戰,針對比賽要求,鍛練相關動作。
 
香港健力錦標賽由香港健力舉重協會主辦,敏婷首次參賽即取得佳績,她感謝同學們的勉勵及指導,推動她不斷改進。她計劃畢業後,投入健身或相關教學工作,將興趣發展成事業。
