Physical Education student claims bronze in Asian swimming championship

體育學生奪亞洲游泳錦標賽銅牌

Keith Sin (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 1) clinched a bronze medal in the 400m individual medley of the Asian Age Group Swimming Championship 2017 held in Uzbekistan.
 
Keith was pleasantly surprised he won a medal as he did not intentionally prepare or receive training for this competition. He said that in the past two months he had focused on training for the World Swimming Championship Budapest and National Games Tianjin which are marathon harbour races. As this competition was held indoors, he handled it with the strength he developed from his regular training.  
 
From the Championship he realised that there is a significant gap between his capability and the world standard. He said he will pay more attention to the small details of his daily life, such as adjusting his dietary habits and daily routine to make steady progress.
 
Keith began his undergraduate study at HKBU this year. He said he plans to devote his time to learning and will maintain close communication with tutors of the Department of Physical Education to see how he can best strike a balance between training, participating in competitions and his studies.    

冼展霆(體育及康樂管理一年級)於烏茲別克舉行的亞洲分齡游泳錦標賽勇奪400米銅牌。
 
展霆對獲獎喜出望外,因為他未有為賽事作特別的準備及訓練。他解釋:「之前兩個月集中應付的世運、全運會等大型賽事,都是屬渡海泳方式的馬拉松賽事;而今次錦標賽是泳池賽事,所以只能靠平日訓練累積的實力去應付。」
 
經過多場賽事後,展霆表示,必須加倍努力才可達至世界水平,日後會多注意細節,例如調節日常作息及飲食習慣等,力求進步。
 
今年首年入讀浸大學士課程,他會積極投入學習生活,與體育學系導師保持緊密溝通,妥善安排運動員訓練、比賽及上課日程,讓體育、學業可以同時平穩發展。
