Adventure racing's new face, Tsang Siu-keung, nicknamed 'Stone', 26, won the Tung Chung leg of the Sprint Adventure Race series last month in his debut. The 'adrenalin junkie' is ready for another race in Sai Kung today. When and how did you start doing adventure racing? Running has always been my interest. I began with marathon and distance running two years ago. I didn't take part in any adventure racing until last March when my senior at work asked me if I was interested in adventure racing. He recommended I take part in it. It came as a surprise that the first time I tried it I won. Were you surprised at your winning the last race in Tung Chung? Yes, I was. The last race attracted many good runners such as Mark Williams. He was very fast. I was surprised that I could surpass him. But I guess it was the route -the two-kilometre river gully - which made me a champion, as I am better at running on it. I think I won't be so lucky next time. As a Chinese, do you think there is a physical disadvantage racing against Westerners? Compared with Asians, Western athletes may have a stronger physique. But Asians are better at running long distance and the marathon. The same is true for adventure racing. When it comes to longer distance and river gullies, who can hold up longer wins the race and Asians tend to fare better in this respect. Apart from adventure racing, do you like other sports? I love many kinds of sports since I was small, like soccer, running and hiking. I am a paddler for Hong Kong Fire Service dragon boat team, too. I do sports whenever I have free time. Do you plan to compete in more adventure races? Yes, I guess so. I compete not really because I love winning. I think in adventure racing I can always find new challenges. I love taking on a challenge and overcoming it. How do you relax? I like going to the cinema. Occasionally I will go hiking and camping with friends.
