Physical Education student tops at East Asian Squash Championships  

體育學生勇奪東亞壁球錦標賽冠軍

Joey Chan (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 1) competed in the East Asian Squash Championships as a member of the Hong Kong team and won a gold medal for the seventh consecutive year.
 
Joey said that the championships were previously held overseas but this year Hong Kong was the host, giving her and the team a hometown advantage. However there were still psychological hurdles to overcome so the training in the past few months focused not only on their playing skills but also on enhancing their mental strength.  
 
Most international competitions are divided into individual men’s and women’s events, or events for country and city teams. However in the East Asian Squash Championships the events are only for country or city teams. Joey said that with Hong Kong’s bigger team, there were opportunities for more comprehensive collaboration among her teammates, which generated a strong team spirit.  
 
Joey is now competing in the squash World Games in Poland and her goal is to become one of the top four players.
 

陳浩鈴(體育及康樂管理一年級)早前以香港隊成員身份參加東亞壁球錦標賽,連續七年勇奪冠軍。
 
浩鈴表示,錦標賽多年來都在外國舉行,今年由香港主辦,香港隊佔主場之利,但同時亦要承受一定的心理壓力。因此過去一段時間的訓練,除了提升隊員的比賽技術外,亦著力強化他們的心理質素。
 
她又指,一般大型比賽的賽事會分為男、女子組及國家或地區,但今次則只分國家或地區的方式進行,以致香港隊隊員數目較以往多,隊友之間有更多元化的合作,並建立更強的團隊精神,因此取得好成績。
 
浩鈴未有在賽事後放鬆下來,現正在波蘭參加世界運動會,並以打入四強為目標。
