FOUR of last year's winners - Robyn Lamsam, Willy Chan Lee, Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin and Jackie Lee Chun-kit - head the list of 38 teenage athletes being nominated for the 1994 Hong Kong Junior Sports Stars Awards. The annual awards is to honour the territory's outstanding under-18 athletes for their achievements in the previous year. The other two 1993 recipients were Maggie Chan Man-yee and Cheung Sai-ho. Both middle distance runner Maggie and footballer Sai-ho have turned 19, but the former has been nominated by the Hong Kong Amateur Athletics Association for the senior awards this time. The 1994 winners will be announced next week but swimmer Robyn, tennis ace Willy and squash prodigies Rebecca and Jackie are strongly fancied to win the trophies again. Robyn, a freestyle specialist who is also very strong in the butterfly, broke Hong Kong records 18 times in 1994. She holds all the national freestyle records, both long course and short course, from 50 metres to 800 metres, and also has the 200 m butterfly record to her name. The highlight of the year for 17-year-old Robyn was at the Hiroshima Asian Games when she won a silver medal in the 4 x 100 metres freestyle relay and a bronze in the 50 metres freestyle. Willy, an aspiring tennis professional, is now the No 1 woman player in Hong Kong with a world ranking just outside the top 500. At junior level, her world ranking is 65th and seventh in Asia. Rebecca, the undisputed Hong Kong junior women squash champion, has made her mark in the open ranks by lifting the local women's Grand Prix crown and making the semi-finals at the East Asian Championships in Manila. Jackie also had a string of very encouraging results at international level - the most notable being that he was the only Asian player to reach the quarter-finals at the World Junior Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand. The La Salle College student, who turned 18 this month, also won the under-19 events at both the Hong Kong junior Closed and Open championships. It will be very difficult to predict the other two winners, but the leading contenders must be rowers Tsang Hau-yuk and badminton player Tam Kai-chuen. Like Robyn, Hau-yuk is another Asian Games medallist - partnering Malina Ngai Man-lin to a bronze in the women's double sculls event in Hiroshima. Shuttler Kai-chuen made his mark at the Commonwealth Games in Victoria, Canada, when he came home with a bronze in the mixed team competition. Others with an outside chance of winning include gymnasts Lee Tak-ming and Wong Ka-li, windsurfer Cheng Hing-lun, footballer Wai Kwan-lung, rower Kwong Wai-lun, tennis player Jason Sankey, triple jumper Pauline Lee Po-lin and triathletes Daniel Lee Chi-wo and James Endicott. The Hong Kong Sports Association for the Mentally Handicapped also put forward two nominees, Lee Wai-yin and Lai Chi-shing. Woman athlete Wai-yin, 17, won four gold medals at the Special Olympics in Indonesia last October - in the 200 m, 400 m, long jump and 4 x 100 me relay. Chi-shing also bagged four medals at the Indonesian meeting when he won the men's 400 m, long jump and 4 x 100 m relay. He finished second in the 200 m event. The remaining nominees are Leung Siu-pan (athletics); Liu Kwok-wa (badminton); Cheung Kam-chau and Yau Ka-wai (basketball); Tang Ming-fai (canoe); Tam Tsz-wang (cycling); Lau Kwok-kin and Tong Sze-ki (fencing); Yeung Ching-kwong (soccer); Lee Ching-ngan and Ng Siu-tong (handball); Christopher Marshall (hockey); Olivia Duncan (netball); Siu Yin (orienteering); Rudy Chung Sing-fook (tennis); David Carroll and Carole Ren (ice-skating); Lai Mei-bo (softball); Wong Yuk-chiu (table tennis); Cheng Ka-ho and Mui Suet-ying (wushu).
