Hong Kong's fastest man, Chiang Wai-hung, crossed the finish line in 44.88 seconds with little effort to bring victory to the SAR national relay team at a schools' invitation race held at Sham Shui Po Sports Ground on Wednesday. When one of the fastest juniors in the SAR - Law Kai-tui, a 15-year-old student at Chong Gene Hang College (CGHC) - challenged Chiang in the final stretch, the powerful sprinter merely put a spring in his stride to stay ahead. The race formed part of the ongoing Joint Schools Athletics Training programme organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the Education Department, and the Hong Kong Amateur Athletics Association (HKAAA). The SAR relay team, comprising Chiang, To Wai-lok, Tang Hon-sing and Ho Kwan-lung, joined HKAAA coaches to give 487 students from 39 schools training tips in seven track and field disciplines. The relay was the finale of the day, and featured teams from CGHC, Yu Chun Keung Memorial College, Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Secondary School, Choi Hung Estate Catholic Secondary School, Fung Kai No.1 Secondary School and Mong Kok Worker's Student School. CGHC boys finished second behind the Hong Kong national team, the best of six school teams, with a speedy 45.22 seconds, but fell short of beating their school record. 'We want to beat the school record one day,' said Chu Wing-yat, 18, the team's oldest member. 'Today was the first time we've raced together, so we just wanted to get our baton passing right,' added Wing-yat. Baton-passing errors cost the Hong Kong team dearly at the Asian Games, where they failed to make the final. 'It was very frustrating not to qualify,' said Tang. He said the most important things for young sprinters to focus on were body balance and co-ordination, and skills. Tang said the national team is now preparing for the Hong Kong Athletics Kings Championships later this month.
