HONG KONG'S leading woman distance runner Maggie Chan Man-yee of Watson's Athletic Club showed her true class when she won two silver medals in the Chinese-Taipei CKS Cup & International Friendship meeting in Taichung City, Taiwan. Comfortably beaten by South Korean athletes on both occasions in humid conditions, Chan finished second in the women's 1,500 metres, clocking four minutes 29.41 seconds on Saturday and then ran a very respectable 17 minutes, 06.76 in the 5,000 metres after leading the race until the final 300 metres the following day. Chan's time easily bettered her own 17:14.20 Hong Kong record set just two weeks earlier. Korean runner Oh Mi-ja won the 1,500 metres in 4:24.98, while compatriot Kang Soon-duk took the 5,000 metres in 16:59.43. Chan again bettered the $10,000 Watson's Athletic Programme B Standard, this time in the 1,500 metres to add to the $10,000 won in the 5,000 metres two weeks ago. Chan's next competition will be at the Tai Po Sports Ground on June 11 when she has the opportunity to compete in either the 1,500 metres or 10,000 metres. But the meeting organisers' decision to run the women's 1,000 metres in the heat of the afternoon at 2.45 pm defies logic and will almost certainly restrict Chan to the shorter distance.
