Fenella Ng Kar-loc became the only Hong Kong athlete to win Asian Games medals in different sports after winning two silvers in the rowing competition in Bangkok. Fenella had won a bronze medal in the 4 x 100 metres relay in swimming four years ago in Hiroshima and she made a successful transition to rowing after bagging the women's heavyweight single sculls and the lightweight sculls. 'Without the technical support and the support from Hong Kong people, I wouldn't have done it,' Fenella said. 'The Asian Games went smoothly and most of the Hong Kong athletes performed very well. Winning these two silvers will give me the incentive to achieve higher goals,' she said. Fenella was a serious rower only four years ago when she retired from swimming although she said she had to go through a lot of pain and sacrifices before winning her rowing medals. 'It has not been easy for me over the last year when I really put in the work to train seriously for Bangkok. But I received some good encouragement by doing well at the World Rowing Championships [Cologne], where I finished sixth in the A final,' she said. Fenella was forced to accept second place behind China's Zhang Xiuyun in the lightweight sculls but she rowed better in the heavyweight sculls - of which she is at a distinct advantage - holding onto a silver medal despite a late challenge from Japan's Junko Kano.
