Double happiness for Hong Kong paddlers
The Hong Kong women's team are one step away from finishing top of their group at the world team championships in Moscow, after they recorded a 3-1 victory over highly fancied South Korea in group C yesterday. It was double happiness for Hong Kong as the men's team finished first in group D after defeating Austria 3-1. Although they lost to Belarus 3-1 later the day, it did not affect their top ranking with four wins and one defeat in the group stage. They now advance to the quarter-finals. The Hong Kong women only need to beat fifth-placed Ukraine today to finish top of their group for an automatic berth in the quarter-finals.
