All eyes will be on Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin and Annie Au Wing-chi, who go head to head today, albeit with partners this time. The gold-medal race is already decided, with Hong Kong set to make it a clean sweep by adding all three doubles golds - men's, women's and mixed - to the four already won. The only question is which one of the Hong Kong combinations will win the top prize. The women's doubles will be between Chiu and Joey Chan Ho-ling facing off against Au and Ng Jia-yunn. Chiu has already won two golds, in the women's singles and team event. 'We are the only sport to make a clean sweep of all the gold medals at these games. Seven out of seven, and that is not too bad,' Hong Kong coach Tony Choi Yuk-kwan said.
