Olympic champion Lee Lai-shan showed her rivals who the boss was by winning the third leg of the Zest Windsurfing Circuit at Cheung Chau against the best male and female board-sailors in the territory. Competing for the first time since winning gold at the Atlanta Games, the Cheung Chau-based windsurfer swept to victory leaving her closest rival Ken Wong Hop-hi to throw in the towel in the fifth and final race of the leg. 'She's much too good for me and she has proven she is not only the best female windsurfer in the world, but also the best windsurfer against the top men here,' he said. San San, as Lee is affectionately known, was surprised at the media and public attention she grabbed in her first competition in nearly eight weeks. Many had gathered to watch the territory's favourite daughter do what she is most famous for while others tried to obtain her autograph or a snapshot of her. 'I was surprised with all the attention I received but it didn't bother me at all,' San San said. 'I was quite happy to pose for photographs and to talk to people,' she said. 'I'm quite pleased that I have done well in my first competition since the Olympics. 'Everything went smoothly and I felt confident of winning the leg with each race. 'The conditions were quite good for racing as well. I enjoyed myself out there.'
