Physical Education student wins harbour race

體育學生渡海泳賽事奪冠

Keith Sin (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 1) completed the New World Harbour Race in 11 minutes, the fastest result among nearly 3,000 competitors, and won the championship in the Men Open (A).
 
Keith was satisfied with his performance in the race, which he considered challenging. He said that there were many changes to this year’s race, such as the new route from Tsim Sha Tsui to Wanchai and a shorter race distance by 500 metres, which meant more swimmers were able to join the race and led to increased competition. To prepare, Keith took a ferry ride for a site visit to learn more about the race venue. This helped ensure his best performance during the competition.
 
Keith won the championship title three times in four years. He will continue to work hard for the race next year, with the aim of clinching the top title for the third consecutive year.   

體育及康樂管理一年級學生冼展霆在新世界維港渡海泳賽事中,以全場最快的成績(11 分鐘)成功衛冕男子公開組(甲組)冠軍。
 
展霆對成績感到滿意。他表示今年賽事有不少改動,取勝的難度大大提高,例如採用全新賽道由尖沙咀游向灣仔,而賽道較去年短500米,讓更多泳手可以參與,增加競爭性。為了在比賽中能夠得心應手,他特別乘坐渡海小輪親身視察比賽環境,觀察現場細節。
 
今年是展霆第四次參加賽事,並三度奪得男子公開組冠軍。他強調,一定會繼續努力,期望明年可以三連冠。
