Physical Education student excels in Spanish Para-Badminton International 2017

體育系學生於西班牙殘疾羽毛球比賽創佳績

Daniel Chan (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 1) clinched one silver and two bronze medals in the Spanish Para-Badminton International 2017.
 
In the mixed doubles category, Daniel fought into the final round and eventually gained a silver medal. Winning all games in the preliminary round, he proceeded to the semi-finals in both men’s singles and doubles where he was beaten by Korean athletes but managed to earn two bronze medals. 
 
Daniel sincerely thanked HKBU for its comprehensive support which enables him to strike a good balance between training, taking part in competitions and his studies. He said, “Members of the Department of Physical Education fully understand and consider athletes’ individual circumstances so that we can participate in training and competitions without any concerns. I can manage my schedule well as lecturers are kind enough to explain to us the objectives, expected level of knowledge and workload of every single course. They also help us catch up with the study progress through various channels after we take leave.” He will focus on his studies for the remainder of this semester, as he will take part in a number of badminton competitions in the second half of this year. 

體育及康樂管理一年級陳浩源早前於西班牙殘疾人士羽毛球比賽中,憑著卓越表現,勇奪一銀兩銅獎牌。
 
浩源在混合雙打小組賽,成功擠身決賽並摘下銀牌;而在男子單打及雙打賽,他均以全勝姿態打入淘汰賽,其後在兩項四強賽敗於韓國選手而取得銅牌。
 
浩源感謝大學對他的支持,讓他可以同時兼顧運動員訓練、比賽及學業。他說:「體育學系了解及體諒運動員的情況,讓我們可以無後顧之憂地參與集訓和比賽。當選科時,導師會解釋各個課程的目標、程度、工作量等,使我們可以選擇合適的科目組合;請假回來,導師亦會利用不同方法協助我們追回課業進度。」他表示,本學期餘下時間將全部投入學習,以便下半年參加多個大型比賽。
