HKBU Rowing Team shines at Jackie Chan Challenge Cup

浸大划艇隊勇奪成龍盃多個獎項

The HKBU Rowing Team recently competed with rowers from eight local universities at the annual “Jackie Chan Challenge Cup” Hong Kong Universities Rowing Championships 2016. The team achieved outstanding performance and successfully swept three gold, three silver and one bronze medals in individual and group contests. The brilliant performance of the HKBU athletes also won them the first runner-up title for the men’s overall, the women’s overall and the overall championship, the best result obtained in recent years.

With the support of the University’s Office of Student Affairs, the HKBU team went to Taiwan for a 10-day intensive training course before the competition. Moreover, additional equipment was purchased in order to enhance both the physical and technical training for the team members. The team expressed its hope for more students to engage in this sport to develop teamwork, carry on the HKBU spirit and strive for even better performance in the future.

浸大划艇隊日前參加年度「成龍挑戰盃」2016年全港大學賽艇錦標賽,與來自八間大學的划艇健兒一較高下,在男女子單人、雙人、四人及八人艇項目均表現出色,成功勇奪三金、三銀、一銅,並取得男女子和全場總亞軍,創下近年來的最佳成績。

在學生事務處的大力支持下,浸大划艇隊今年獲得大學資助,不但賽前到台灣進行為期10天的密集式訓練,並添置了新器材,有助加強隊員體能及技術訓練。划艇隊期望未來更多同學能參與此運動,培養團隊及浸大薪火相傳的精神,繼續為大學創出佳績。
