Physical Education student wins silver and bronze medals in international para-badminton competition

體育學生在國際傷殘羽毛球賽勇奪銀、銅牌

Daniel Chan (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 1) won a silver and a bronze medal in the singles and doubles events respectively in the international para-badminton competition held in Thailand.
 
Daniel is studying at HKBU under the Elite Athletes Admission Scheme, launched last year to help selected athletes pursue degree programmes at the University. He said that para-badminton is only a semi-professional sport in Hong Kong, and he used to worry about having to work, study and train at the same time while under financial and time pressures.  However despite this challenging environment, after one year Daniel has performed very well, not only continuing his studies but also increasing his training time, which has improved his skills significantly. Daniel is particularly pleased that his achievement demonstrates that his abilities are comparable to those of professional players around the globe.
 
Daniel thanked the support provided by the Department of Physical Education. The Department allowed him to have a flexible study plan, and delegated a teacher to provide him with useful advice, so he could strike a good balance between his studying and training commitments. Now he will devote himself to preparing for the Asian Games 2018 to be hosted by Indonesia. His goal is gain the top ranking in the para-badminton world.  
 

陳浩源(體育及康樂管理一年級)於早前在泰國舉行的傷健羽毛球賽中,勇奪男子單打銀牌及雙打銅牌。
 
浩源今年循精英運動員入學計劃入讀浸大,他表示,香港傷健羽毛球並非職業化,因此他要同時兼顧工作、學業和訓練,亦曾經擔心在經濟及時間壓力下,無法修讀大學課程。不過,面對各種挑戰,浩源反而更懂得分配時間,不但可以繼續學業,還增加了訓練時數,球技得以提升;而今次的成績正好證明他的水平與國際職業運動員不相伯仲。
 
浩源感謝體育學系的協助,學系不但有導師跟進運動員需要,提供實際的意見,更作靈活的課程安排,讓運動員可以在訓練及學習作最佳的平衡。他表示,未來會積極備戰明年在印尼舉行的亞運,並以取得世界第一為目標。
