The Hong Kong squad won silver medals in both the boys and the girls team events in the Subic Bay International Asian Cup and ASTC Junior Championships in the Philippines yesterday. Hong Kong finished second to Japan in both events, which featured a 750m sea swim, 20km bike ride and 5.3km run. The teams failed to win individual medals in the junior categories although Joyce Cheung and Leanne Szeto finished fourth and fifth in the girls race. 'Given the extreme conditions, the team did well,' said national coach Ruth Hunt.
