BILLY Kwok Sze-wai stole the spotlight from his more illustrious Hongkong squad teammates by being the only local swimmer to get among the records in the Hongkong international invitational age group competition. The Indonesian competitors dominated the three-day championships at the Kowloon Park pool by topping the medal tables with 43 golds to Hongkong's 23 and the Tokyo Swimming Centre's 13. It was Kwok who produced an impressive individual performance to keep the territory's colours flying with a five-medal haul - three golds and two silvers. The 14-year-old underlined his potential by breaking the meeting record for the 200 metres individual medley with a time of two minutes and 20.93 seconds, clipping 1.09 seconds off the old mark set by China's Wu Gang last year. He followed it up with another top class effort, this time in the more demanding 400 metres medley event when he lowered the Hongkong junior record set by Arthur Li Kai-yin. Li set the national mark of five minutes and 1.37 seconds five years ago. Kwok captured the gold in five minutes and 0.46 seconds, but it was not good enough to beat the meeting record held by Japan's Munetake Kanou. The St Joseph's College pupil, however, was not totally happy with his overall performance at the gala. He said: ''I did some personal best times, but I'm confident I can go even faster if I had prepared for this meeting. ''The Hongkong team are in the middle of endurance training at the moment, and we are not training for speed. It's lucky I had a couple of days off to taper for this meeting.'' But head national swimming coach Bill Sweetenham was extremely pleased with Kwok's showing and was full of praise for the highly promising youngster. ''In terms of talent, Billy is as good as you will find anywhere in the world,'' said Sweetenham, former head coach of the Australian Olympic team. ''But he is at a crossroad where he must decide whether he wants to be king of Hongkong or step up into the international arena. ''He has to shift his gears up in terms of training and it takes a lot of commitment to make this very big step.'' Sweetenham's assistant Chan Yiu-hoi, who will take the Hongkong team to the East Asian Games next month, was happy with Kwok's efforts but added he was also impressed by Snowie Pang Wan-yiu and Robyn Lamsam. Both Pang and Lamsam are preparing for the East Asian Games and have not interrupted their training for the invitational meeting, and yet they each bagged two golds. Lamsam, Hongkong's star woman swimmer, triumphed in the 50 metres and 100 metres freestyle events for 15-to 17-year-old girls, while Pang scored in the 100 metres and 200 metres breaststroke races in the same age category. Other Shanghai-bound swimmers who won gold medals at the meeting were Katie Lau King-ting and Caroline Ng Ka-yan, both competitors in the girls' 13 and 14-year-old division. Lau triumphed in the 100 metres butterfly event, while Ng scored in the 400 metres freestyle. Another Hongkong representative in the same division to walk off with a gold medal was Maggie Hui Mei-ki, in the 50 metres freestyle. A double gold medallist was Fong Lik-sun, winner of the 200 metres butterfly and 200 metres backstroke events for boys 13 and 14. Local swimmers also successful in the same category were Brendan Leung (400 metres freestyle) and Michael Scott (100 metres breaststroke). Tam Chi-kin won the 100 metres breaststroke for boys 11 and 12 and Alex Wong Chu-hei triumphed in the 200 metres breaststroke event for boys 15 to 17 years.
