SEVEN-UP San San was in sparkling form yesterday as she won three races in a row to clinch her first Asian Games gold medal. Windsurfer Lee Lai-shan won her seventh successive race to nail the gold medal in the women's mistral event. It is a provisional result at the moment but San San will be opening the magnum of champagne after today's remaining two races in the 10-race series for nothing can prevent her from winning. Even if San San lost both races, she would still finish with the gold as her lead is unbeatable. However, as a mark of respect for the rest of the field in her event and also so as not to distract her teammates in the other events, San San was not celebrating yesterday. 'I'm happy. But I must stress that this is still a provisional result,' said the Atlanta Olympic gold medallist and current world number one yesterday. Coach Rene Appel was more forthcoming, describing the victory as a 'huge relief'. 'It has taken nine years, a long time in coming and she deserves it,' said Appel. San San capped a fine day for Hong Kong which began with Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin winning the silver medal in the women's squash event. Hong Kong now have a total of seven medals - a gold, a silver and five bronze. San San has now won everything there is to win in the world of windsurfing. She began the day three penalty points in front of main rival Huang Ying of China. By the end of the day, she had forged a decisive seven penalty-point lead. Whichever way you add up the mathematics of a complicated scoring system, there is no chance of San San losing from this position - you could get a better price on a donkey winning today's International Cup at Sha Tin. San San finished first in all three races yesterday after an extra race was added on to make up for one postponed earlier in the week. She determinedly swept around the box-shaped course, as if to make up for all those previous lost opportunities. At the past two Asian Games in Beijing and Hiroshima, in 1990 and 1994 respectively, San San was pipped to the gold and had to settle for silver. But this time she has been in dominating form. 'She has been totally dominant here. 'It is good to see that she has clinched the gold medal before the event has finished,' said Appel. The Hong Kong camp is undecided if San San will race today or not. She doesn't really have to and Appel was ambiguous about her presence at the starting line. Chinese rival Huang had a dismal day. She finished with one third place and two second-place finishes which put her out of contention. 'I have lost the medal,' said Huang, referring to the coveted gold. While San San was completing a famous win, fiance Sam Wong Tak-sum saw his slim lead in the men's lightweight raceboard event slip. Wong had shared the lead with South Korean Ok Duck-pil at the start yesterday. But at day's end, Wong had slipped two penalty points behind China's Zhu Yuangguo, who stormed to first-place finishes in all three races. Wong managed two second slots and a poor third place in the final race. He faces a tough time to get back into gold medal-winning position today. 'Our strategy tomorrow will be to win the first race and then see how the others pan out,' said Appel. Hong Kong has another medal hope in the men's heavyweight event with Tang Luen-chan lying in fourth place.
