Hong Kong teenager Tsui Chi-ho became the fastest young man in the country when winning at the National Youth Championships in Yichun, Jiangxi province, yesterday. The 19-year-old sprinter beat Chen Qiang of Guangxi in the 100 metres final in a personal best of 10.39 seconds, only two-hundredths of a second outside Chiang Wai-hung's nine-year-old Hong Kong record. Tsui then steered his team to a gold medal in the 4x100m relay, breaking the Hong Kong junior record with a time of 40.51 seconds. The other team members were Ho Man-lok, Ng Ka-fung and Chan Kei-fung.
