Paralympic champion Alison Yu Chui-yee was a triple gold medal winner at the Wheelchair Fencing World Cup in Poland last week. Alison, 20, was competing for the Hong Kong team for the first time since her success at the Athens Paralympics last summer. The former student at Our Lady of the Rosary College hit the jackpot in Greece last year when she won four gold medals in women's wheelchair fencing events. In Poland, Alison won gold in the individual foil, epee, and teamed up with Chan Yui-chong to win the team foil gold. Chan was also a gold medal winner in the category B individual epee and foil. The Hong Kong squad of 10 were up against 10 nations, including strong contingents from China, Hungary and the hosts. 'We proved that we are the No1 fencing team in the world,' said Alison, who was the South China Morning Post 2003 Student Sportsperson of the Year and a Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards winner in March. 'It was a tough competition and our main rivals China have become very strong. It means there will be some very interesting competitions in the future and at the 2008 Beijing Paralympics especially. 'It's the first time we have competed since the Paralympics. I trained for three months to prepare for this as I have been studying for my A-level exams.' Alison plans to start university in September and study geography, after which she wants to be a geologist. The Hong Kong squad has some fresh faces, as several of the Athens Paralympic team members have retired from the sport. 'Our coach has said this is an evaluation period for us,' Alison said. 'There are some new young members who have a lot of potential. 'We are all very much looking forward to the challenge of the Beijing Paralympics in 2008.'
