Lee Lai-shan's Olympic preparations have gathered momentum with the Hong Kong windsurfer leading the field with one day remaining in an international Regatta at Hilton Head, South Carolina. The 25-year-old Lee, a genuine medal contender for the Olympic windsurfing event in Savannah, Georgia - south of Hilton Head - was taking part in her first competitive event since arriving in the United States last week. According to Dennis Chau Wai-keung, of the Hong Kong Windsurfing Association, national coach Rene Appel is not overly concerned about the results. 'Although San San is in the lead, Rene said the results are not important,' said Chau, who is keeping in touch with Appel via E-mail. 'He is more concerned with her technique and the need to get some competition in. I don't know how strong the competition is, but it is unlikely that her main Olympic rivals are taking part.' Chau said there was another competition, the North American Continental Championships, scheduled for later this week, which would be the last event before the Olympics start. But he added that Appel has yet to decide if Lee will enter the race. With less than the month before the Olympic windsurfing event starts, Appel is doing everything he can to make sure Lee will be in prime physical and mental condition.
