Colin Jackson, British Olympic 110-metre hurdles champion and record holder, visited the Sports Institute in Sha Tin to give the SAR's top athletes a coaching session. The event was part of a promotion organised by a watch company. During Jackson's short stay in Hong Kong, he managed to share his experiences with young local athletes. SAR hurdles record holder Tang Hon-sing was thrilled when he got the chance to run with Jackson at the institute. Tang said he was excited to receive tips and learn the secrets of Jackson's success from him. 'He advised me to stay relaxed and take it slowly when going over the hurdles. 'It's the first time I have met him face-to-face. I have seen him on TV before. He looks confident and full of energy in competitions,' Tang said. Jackson said he was happy to meet Hong Kong athletes and thought they had potential. He advised the athletes to be enthusiastic about the sport. 'The key to success is to keep practising and be enthusiastic about the sport. If they are not enthusiastic, they will have no motivation or interest to make any progress,' he said. Jackson established a world record of 12.91 seconds in 1993 for the 110 m hurdles. The 32- year-old has taken part in three Olympic Games. He won a silver medal at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, but finished fourth at the 1996 Games in Atlanta. At the 2000 Sydney Olympics, he has set his sights on gold. 'Next year will be my last chance to win a gold medal. I think I can do it because I'm in top form and running well now.' Jackson finished off his visit at the institute by signing hats and T-shirts for fans and young athletes.
