HKBU teams shine at inter-collegiate cross country race

浸大健兒於大專越野賽表現出色

HKBU athletes performed outstandingly once again at the Hong Kong University Sport Federation (USFHK) Cross Country Competition. They won the first runner-up prize in the Overall Championship, and first runner-up in the Men’s Overall Championship. In the individual events, Ngai Tin-yan (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 3) captured the silver medal in the Women’s Individual contest.
 
Tin-yan, captain of the HKBU women’s team, said that although 50 students took part in the tryouts this year, only 10 were recruited due to restrictions on team formation. Despite that, there was an overall renewal of membership which gave a big boost to team spirit. To pursue a better result, team members devoted themselves and took part in additional training; regardless of position, whether main runner or reserve, team members did their best in the competition. She added that every single team member or University team candidate is very important and valuable to the team.
 
After graduating this year from College of International Education of HKBU, Tin-yan continued her undergraduate study at the University. She was very excited to take part in the competition as a member of the University team again. She participated in eight competitions in November and considers this the most important event. Tin-yan said that self-confidence and setting one’s sights on producing a new personal best are keys to winning, which enabled her to focus on the event and gain other unexpected benefits.   

浸大運動員在大專越野賽中再度取得佳績,勇奪團體總亞軍和男子團體亞軍;個人方面,魏天恩(體育及康樂管理三年級)奪得女子個人亞軍。
 
身兼女子隊隊長的魏天恩表示,今年爭取加入大學代表隊的同學多達50人,但因編制所限,只可以錄取10人,競爭激烈。雖然團隊大換血,但士氣反而大振,組員為代表大學爭取好成績,經常自己再作額外訓練;不論正選或後備,都在比賽全力以赴。她表示,每一位成員及爭取加入校隊的同學都是非常珍貴的。
 
天恩今年由副學士升上浸大本科課程,並能夠再次代表大學出賽,她倍感振奮,即使十一月有八項比賽,但她視今次比賽為最重要的一場。她表示,取得理想成績,主要是具備自信心,並以突破自己為目標,專注的態度往往帶來意想不到的正面效果。
