Hong Kong's leading rower Law Hiu-fung is not taking this weekend's Asian Machine Rowing Championship 'too seriously' but will still be disappointed if he finishes outside the top three. Law, a semi-finalist in the Athens Olympics singles sculls, will take part in men's individual lightweight 2,000 metres and men's lightweight pairs 2000m with So Sau-wah at the Kowloon Park Indoor Games Hall. 'The competition is not particularly significant in terms of preparing for the upcoming competitions. But I do want to get into the top three and see what level I am at among the Asian rowers,' Law said. Top rowers from seven Asian countries are competing. Held in Hong Kong for the first time, rowers from Japan, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Macau and Singapore will compete against their hosts in lightweight and open classes for men, plus four other categories for women and mixed crews. Law said he would be aiming to break his own Hong Kong indoor rowing record of six minutes and 27.3 seconds for the lightweight 2,000m event. The Hong Kong Indoor Championships will be held concurrently with the Asian event. More than 1,400 rowers have entered the competition and eight cash prizes of $1,000 will be awarded to the four male and four female rowers who come closest to the respective world records and to anyone setting a new Hong Kong record.
