HKBU students win awards at Triathlon Asian Cup

浸大同學參與三項鐵人亞洲杯賽勇奪獎項

In the recent Hong Kong Life ASTC Sprint Triathlon Asian Cup 2017 (Tertiary School Relay), five students of two teams from HKBU finished first runner-up and second runner-up in various sections of the race, including 375m Swim, 15km Bike and 2.5km Run.

Winners of the first runner-up prize are:
Swim and Bike: Ching Ho-kwong (Higher Diploma, Year 1)
Run: Hung Tsz-him (Associate Degree, Year 1)

Winners of the second runner-up prize are:
Swim: Wong Suet-wing (Associate Degree, Year 1)
Bike: Crystal Lau (Associate Degree, Year 1)
Run: Ngai Tin-yan (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 3)

This was Ngai Tin-yan’s first triathlon race even though she has been keen on long distance races (more than 20km) for some time already. She said: “The fast rhythm and sprinting required in a 2.5km run is a huge challenge for me, both physically and mentally. I consider this an opportunity to exceed myself.” She believes the triathlon race provided an invaluable chance to experience team spirit.

浸大學生最近參與「香港人壽ASTC三項鐵人亞洲杯2017」大專接力組,包括375米游泳、15公里單車和2.5公里跑步賽事,當中兩支隊伍共五位隊員奪得亞軍和季軍。

獲得亞軍的隊員包括:
游泳及單車:程浩光(高級文憑一年級)
跑步:熊子謙(副學士一年級)

獲得季軍的隊員包括:
游泳:黃雪詠(副學士一年級)
單車:劉允陶(副學士一年級)
跑步:魏天恩(體育及康樂管理一年級)

其中一位得獎同學魏天恩是首次參與三項鐵人賽事。擅於長跑(20公里以上)的天恩說:「是次比賽的2.5公里跑步,節奏和爆炸力都有別於長跑賽,對我來說在身體和心理上都是很大的挑戰,正因如此我可以挑戰自己的能力。」她認為參與三項鐵人賽的機會非常難得,讓她體驗團隊精神。
