HKBU athletes shine at World University Woodball Championship

浸大運動健兒揚威世界大學生活木球錦標賽

Two students of the Physical Education and Recreation Management (PERM) programme excelled at the World University Woodball Championship 2016 in Taipei. Lau Yu-ki (Year 5) won a gold medal in the Men’s Team Stroke Event while Liu Tsz-yan (Year 2) won bronze medals in the Women’s Team Stroke Event and the Women’s Single Fairway Event. 
 
This was Tsz-yan’s first time in the competition as a member of the Hong Kong Team. “I strove very hard in my training to improve my capability and finally was selected as a member of the Hong Kong Team. Due to the shortage of training venues, all team members treasured every training session, which not only strengthened our skills and strategies, but also improved our psychological state during the competitions,” she said. 
 
Tsz-yan was happy about winning these valuable prizes, which have motivated her to aim for higher targets. Now, she is in training for the Hong Kong intercollegiate woodball competition to be held in March next year and is looking forward to taking part in another World University Woodball Championship.   
 

體育及康樂管理學生在世界大學生活木球錦標賽取得佳績。五年級學生劉于祺在男子團體桿數賽中取得金牌,而二年級學生廖芷茵在女子團體桿數賽及女子單打球道賽中取得兩面銅牌。
 
今次是芷茵首度以香港代表隊身份參加比賽,「在過去一段時間,我十分努力地參與訓練,提升自己水平,終於如願入選入香港代表隊。因為香港木球練習場地不足,所有隊員都十分珍惜每一次訓練的機會,期望可以改善我們的技巧、比賽策略,以及心理質素。」
 
芷茵對取得兩面獎牌感到高興,希望未來取得更大成就。她現時已積極投入新一輪訓練,備戰明年三月份舉行的香港大專木球賽,並期待能夠再次參與世界大學生活木球錦標賽。
