Young athletes will have a chance to improve their personal bests in the second round of the Watsons Water Hong Kong Junior Elite Athletic Championships at Wan Chai Sports Ground this weekend. Sprinters Tang Yik-chun and Leung Hau-sze will be the ones to beat in their events, while middle-distance runners such as Leung Tat-wai, Man Siu-kit and Roseda Lo will hope to improve on their fastest-ever times. Pang Ying-kit looks to be the favourite in the boys' Grade C high jump, while Ng Hei-man and Ruth Fielder will battle it out in the girls' Grade A 5,000 metres. The championships comprise four legs. The first leg was held in January, while the next two are in October and November. The event is organised by the Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association (HKAAA). To encourage more participants, the four rounds of the championships fall on non-exam months. Now, there is an HKAAA event for almost every month of the year where Hong Kong's most promising young athletes can test themselves against each other. Apart from the championships, there are four rounds of the Athletic King race, the Summer Initiation Athletic Meet and the Open Meet. More competitions mean more opportunities for young people to measure their abilities, see how far they can push themselves, and gain familiarity in challenging conditions. This weekend, athletes will compete in four age groups from Grades A to D. Points will be awarded to the top eight competitors in each event, while the top three will receive medals. After the four legs, athletes with the highest number of points will receive trophies.
