HKBU athletes shine at Tertiary Institution Taekwondo Competition

浸大健兒揚威大專跆拳道比賽

A seven-member team from HKBU took part in the Tertiary Institution Taekwondo Competition and won three championship, one first runner-up and three second runner-up titles. All team members were ranked among the top three in their respective categories.
 
HKBU athletes performed exceptionally in the individual events:
 
Champions
Ho Siu-yuen (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 2) - men’s 74-80kg Welter Weight 
Ip Chi-pan (Higher Diploma, Year 1) - men’s 54-58kg Fly Weight
Lin Siyi (Associate Degree, Year 1) - women’s 57-62kg Light Weight
 
First runner-up
Kwok Wing-lam (Associate Degree, Year 2) - women’s 57-62kg Light Weight
 
Second runner-up
Chen Tian (Science, Year 1) - men’s 68-74kg Light Weight
Mak Hei-yiu (Liberal and Cultural Studies, Year 3) - women’s 53-57kg Feather Weight
Leung Hei-suet (Associate Degree, Year 2) - women’s 46-49kg Fly Weight
 
Ho Siu-yuen was excited about winning the championship, especially as it was his first time taking part in a Taekwondo competition. 
 
Last year, Siu-yuen suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury and could not receive his usual basketball training. By coincidence, he tried taekwondo with his friend last September. He credited his excellent performance in the competition to his coach. He said taekwondo, like basketball, involves a lot of lower limb movements. For this reason, he had concerns about getting hurt again when receiving taekwondo training. In view of this, the coach adjusted the training scope and competition strategy which enabled Siu-yuen to score points with punches instead of kicks. 
 
Siu-yuen said that after he makes a full recovery, he will continue taekwondo training and try hard to improve his skills.

浸大今年派出七名學生參加香港學界跆拳道比賽,全部打入三甲,分別取得三金、一銀、三銅的佳績。
 
獲獎學生名單如下:
冠軍
何兆源(體育及康樂管理二年級)-男子74至80公斤沉量級冠軍。
葉志濱(高級文憑一年級)-男子54至58公斤蠅量級
林斯義(副學士一年級)-女子57至62公斤級輕量級
 
亞軍
郭詠琳(副學士二年級)-女子57至62公斤輕量級
 
季軍
陳天(理學一年級)-男子68至74公斤輕量級
麥浠瑤(通識及文化研究三年級)-女子53至57公斤羽量級
梁希雪(副學士二年級)-女子46至49公斤蠅量級
 
何兆源去年因為十字韌帶受傷,未能繼續正常的籃球訓練。在機緣巧合下,他於去年九月開始跟隨好友接觸跆拳道,短短四個月即取得冠軍,成績驕人。
 
兆源特別感謝教練的教導,「籃球比賽需要運球、走位等,有大量下肢動作,跆拳道亦一樣。我最初都擔心會再次受傷,幸好教練調整訓練及比賽策略,讓我可以用拳代替踢腿,爭取分數。」他表示,日後完全康復,仍然會繼續學習跆拳道,進一步提升水平。
