Physical Education student shines in Japan Para-Badminton Open 2017

體育系學生揚威日本殘疾羽毛球比賽

Daniel Chan (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 2) clinched a silver medal in the men’s singles and a bronze in the doubles in the wheelchair category of the Japan Para-Badminton Open 2017.
 
Daniel was satisfied with the result as there were 22 competitors, six of them full-time athletes. Daniel entered the competition in his capacity as student and still managed to perform well, maintaining second place in the world ranking. Daniel thought this result was satisfactory and he is now devoting himself to new targets—the Tokyo Paralympic Games in 2020 and fighting for the top rank in the world.
 
Besides the lecturers of the Department of Physical Education, Daniel would like to thank his classmates: “I sometimes have to skip lessons in order to take part in various competitions; my classmates always help me take notes. During courses on sport technique, in areas such as gymnasium, swimming, dancing, my teachers and classmates are always on hand to offer their kind assistance. Without their support, learning would be a big problem for me.” 

體育及康樂管理二年級陳浩源同學早前於日本殘疾人士羽毛球公開賽中,在輪椅組男子單打獲銀牌,又在雙打取得銅牌。
 
浩源滿意成績,因為今次22位球手實力強勁,其中六位更是全職運動員,而自己身兼學生身份,仍然能夠取得理想成績,保持世界排名第二位,可見技術水平已見穩定,對自己有所交代。他會積極為爭取世界第一及2020年東京傷殘奧運會作準備。
 
除了體育學系導師外,浩源亦特別感激同學的幫助。他說:「為了參加比賽,我有時不得不缺席課堂,同學會幫我抄筆記;在一些技術課時,例如體操、游泳、舞蹈等,又會從旁協助。沒有他們,我的學習生活會艱難得多。」
