Hong Kong's Chan Wai-man moved from seventh to fifth overall yesterday as the young sailor completed races nine and 10 in 14th and fifth place respectively in the women's mistral at the 10th National Games With the final race held today, Chan, 20, will be facing an uphill task for a bronze medal as she is 17 points behind third-placed Li Ling of Shandong. In the men's mistral, Cheng Kwok-fai continued his consistent form yesterday when he finished sixth and fifth. The 21-year-old remained eighth in the overall standings, but the points between the fourth and eighth position are close enough that anything could happen after today's last race. 'The conditions here are difficult and a bit tricky,' said Hong Kong coach Rene Appel. 'Almost every sailor has had some bad results. Other than one or two races competed under extreme conditions, Cheng has maintained a high level of consistency and that's why he can occupy a top overall position,' In the leading pack, defending champion Zhou Yuanguo of Liaoning and two Guangdong sailors, Yao Fukwen and Li Mingdong, are in a tough battle for the gold medal. Hong Kong's Ho Chi-ho (15th) and Chan King-yin (17th) remained in mid table of the 39 participants.
