Eurasian rider Brian Cook says he feels 'gutted' after finishing seventh in the men's downhill mountain biking final, four years after winning the bronze in the same event at the last Asian Games in Bangkok. The 24-year-old Cook qualified the fifth fastest in the morning segment, but failed to improve on that placing when he struggled in seventh place in an event that was dominated by the South Korean and Japanese racers. 'I don't really know what happened. I thought I had a good run. But competition is much higher than it was four years ago. I'm really disappointed,' said Cook. 'I was fifth fastest in qualifying and I really felt that I went okay in the final. I had a clean run and somebody told me after the race that I was second fastest half way down. But something must have gone wrong. I guess I didn't go fast enough.' The race was won by South Korea's Chung Hyung-rae in three minutes, 54.33 seconds. He finished ahead of Japan's Takashi Tsukamoto, who clocked 3:54.80. Third was Japan's Ryo Uchijima on 3:34.89. Cook crossed the line in 4:10.020, which was almost two seconds slower than his time recorded in qualifying. Cook added: 'My coach said there was nothing wrong with the timing equipment. I didn't want to be a bad sport so I let the result stand. I am just a bit gutted now. This race only happens every four years. I won't have many other chances to do well in the Asian Games. 'The competition has become stronger. The Japanese and Koreans this time sent two racers instead of just the one they sent to the last Asian Games. I guess we have to train more. The race has gone more technical and the riding is determined by fitness too. In Hong Kong, we only have one or two courses and we only race four times a year. If we want to train, we have to go overseas and that can be very expensive. It's a bit unfair for us.' Hong Kong's other entrant in the event, Tsui King-man, finished in eighth place in 4:10.870 in the nine-man field. Meanwhile, Hong Kong wushu exponent, Li Fai, didn't perform as well as expected when she was lying in third position in the women's taijiquan two events combined event. Li, who is one of the favourites for gold in this event, tallied 9.45 points after the first round of the preliminaries behind Myanmar's Khaing Khaing Maw, who tallied 9.5 points. Singapore's Liew Yin Yin was just behind on 9.46 points. 'I'm not really worried because it is still early days and a lot of things could change between now and the final [tomorrow]. I would give myself 90 marks for my routine. A lot of the judges like a more physical approach to the routine. I prefer a physical approach too. I hope to do better,' said the 33-year-old wushu gold medal prospect. Hong Kong's To Yu-hang fared better in the men's changquan three events combined event. He tallied 9.35 points to be lying in second place in the preliminary event with a realistic chance of a medal. Leading the event was China's Yuan Xindong on 9.46 points, with the Philippines' Arvin Ting on 9.3 points for third place. In equestrian, Hong Kong's Aram Gregory finished seventh in the individual dressage aboard Loki II. The event was won by Choi Jun-sang aboard Dancing Boy, with Suh Hung-kyun on Anycall finishing second to complete a one-two for South Korea. Third was Japan's Naoki Hitomi on Sion's Boy.
