HKBU cross country teams excel in relay competitions

浸大越野隊揚威接力賽

HKBU cross country teams performed well in the PUMA Hong Kong Youth Relay and the Panasonic Pacers Charity Easter Run.  
 
A total of two HKBU women’s teams took part in the PUMA Hong Kong Youth Relay 2018. Associate Degree Year 1 students Crystal Lau, Law Tsz-kwan, Fung Hiu-nam and Wong Suet-wing were the members of the winning team. Meanwhile, the other team, with members Ho Hiu-tung (Sport and Recreation Leadership, Year 2), Yip Chui-yee (Physical Education and Recreation Management, Year 3), Fong Ching-ha (Higher Diploma, Year 2) and Lin Qianlan (Associate Degree, Year 1), was the first runner-up.
 
Yip Chui-yee, the captain of the team, said that although the two-kilometre race in Central is not too challenging for long-distance runners, it enables team members to accumulate valuable competition experience and familiarise themselves with the route. Their coach enhanced training on short-distance running and team members also practised more in their free time in order to obtain an excellent result. 
 
In the Panasonic Pacers Charity Easter Run, the team that comprised Ngai Tin-yan (Physical Education and Recreation Studies, Year 3), Lau Tsun-ling (Physical Education and Recreation Studies, Year 4), Lee Wing-yan (Higher Diploma, Year 1) and Lee Yuk-lam (Associate Degree, Year 1) won the championship title. 
 
Ngai Tin-yan, the captain, said the team gained fruitful competition experience. To start with, the route was challenging, secondly every runner was required to run only one kilometre, therefore the competition tactic was different than the one they usually employ for long-distance races. Moreover, other institutions appointed elite athletes to join the competition which made it more competitive. Tin-yan attributed the win to teammates’ strong sense of commitment and engagement during the preparation for the race. 
 

浸大越野隊先後在PUMA青少年道路接力賽及Panasonic飛達慈善復活跑取得佳績。 
 
浸大派出兩隊女子組合參加PUMA青少年道路接力賽,由副學士一年級學生劉允陶、羅芷君、馮曉楠及王雪詠組成的隊伍勇奪冠軍;而何曉彤(運動及康樂領袖學二年級)、葉翠儀(體育及康樂管理三年級)、方靜霞(高級文憑三年級)及林倩嵐(副學士一年級)則取得亞軍。
 
隊長葉翠儀表示,今次比賽路段為中環海旁的兩公里馬路,對長跑跑手來說距離不算長、難度不算高,但可以累積比賽經驗,以及了解一些不常跑的路段。為此教練特別加強短距離訓練,而隊員亦自行增加練習,因此取得佳績。
 
至於魏天恩(體育及康樂管理三年級)、劉峻崚(體育及康樂管理四年級)、李穎欣(高級文憑一年級)及李育霖(副學士一年級)的團隊則於Panasonic飛達慈善復活跑取得冠軍。
 
隊長魏天恩表示,今次比賽具一定挑戰性,首先路徑有一定難度,而且每人只須跑一公里,跟長跑的策略完全不同,加上其他大專院校都派出精英參賽;幸好隊員具有相當使命感,亦積極備戰,終擊敗不少強隊,奪得冠軍。
