HONG Kong scullers made their mark at the Asian Championships in Seoul yesterday with two gold medals and a bronze in three finals. Kai Ramming landed the territory's first gold when he narrowly held off a strong finish from South Korean Jo Jun-hyung in winning the men's lightweight singles in seven minutes and 27.95 seconds. German Ramming, silver medallist in the same event two years ago, opened up a handy lead by the halfway mark and grimly hung on to edge the Korean by less than half a length. Japan's Hase Hitoshi and China's Shen Hongfei were third and fourth respectively. Women's lightweight sculler Ho Kim-fai faced little opposition in leading all the way for the gold in her final and also winning herself a new French-made boat worth $40,000. French boatmakers WM, who are hoping to promote the aerospace-designed craft in Asia, loaned the boat to Ho with a promise that it would be hers if she could win the gold. The East Asian Games gold medallist was hardly pushed as she led from start to finish, crossing the line in eight minutes and 16.73 seconds to beat second-placed Japanese Saito Rie by more than five lengths. Hong Kong also collected a bronze in the men's heavyweight pairs through Matt Richardson and Lui Kam-chi, who finished strongly to overtake Japan's Ueda Takeshi and Minowa Kazuyuki. China's Yang Wenzhong and Jiang Haiyang won the gold with South Koreans Ryu Jeong-min and Kim Kung-suk second. Coach Chris Perry was delighted by Hong Kong's success and expected more medals for his charges today. Perry said: ''We brought home three silvers and a bronze two years ago and this time we have broken through for our first Asian Championships golds.''
