Schoolgirl Alison Yu Chui-yee looks set to win her first Senior Hong Kong Sports Star Award at the annual ceremony at the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai tonight. The 20-year-old Form Seven student at Our Lady of the Rosary College hit the jackpot at the Paralympics in Greece last year when she won four gold medals in women's wheelchair fencing events. Alison won a junior award in 2001 and 2002, but failed to clinch the senior award last year despite being world champion and top-ranked wheelchair fencer. Tonight, she is in contention to finally collect one of the eight coveted trophies and a $30,000 cash prize. 'These awards are how the Hong Kong people show their respect to local athletes - I hope I can win one,' said Alison. 'I think table tennis duo Ko Lai-chak and Li Ching will both win one, and Lee Lai-shan will win one too.' Trophies and more than $450,000 in prize money will be handed out to the best athletes selected by a judging panel, the sports press and the public. Online voting will influence four of the six categories at Hong Kong's 'sporting Oscars'. Usually the public has a say only in the Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards, the most prestigious category, but this time their choices will influence who wins in the junior and team sections, and a new entry - Team Only. Students Sze Hang-yu and Tang Yik-chun are popular contenders to win junior honours at the prestigious event attended by elite athletes, celebrities and senior government officials. Eight athletes will receive the Senior Sports Star Award, while six will be honoured in both the junior and potential sections. As well as a cash prize, the six winners in the junior category will each receive a round-trip, economy-class ticket to any Asian destination from Cathay Pacific Airways. Other strong contenders in the junior category include Tania Mak so-ning and Ricco Chan Ye-ko (triathlon), Annie Au Wing-chi (squash), Lai Wai-ling (table tennis), Wong Wai-hong (badminton), and Liu Nga-yin and Lau Wan-tat (handball).In the seniors, Fan Chun-yip (football), Wong Ho-yeung (boxing), Wong Kam-Po (cycling), Rebecca Chiu Wing-yin (squash) and Marco Fu Ka-chun (snooker) are expected to claim honours.
