Zhang Rui's Olympic dream came true yesterday when she qualified for the Beijing Games. Zhang defeated North Korean Hyon Ryon-hui 4-0 in the repechage of the Asian continental qualifying tournament at Shek Kip Mei Park Sports Centre to clinch one of the seven Beijing Games tickets on offer. Also through to the Olympics were North Korean Kim Jong, world number three Wang Nan of China and Haruna Fukuoka of Japan. Dang Ye-so, a former mainlander representing South Korea, and Thailand's Nanthana Komwong, booked their Olympic spots on Friday. Arriving in Hong Kong six years ago, the 29-year-old Zhang said she would have retired from the sport had it not been for the belief she would appear one day at the Olympic Games. 'I did not make it for the Athens Games in 2004 and since then my target has been set firmly on the Beijing Games,' she said. An exhausted Zhang vomited twice after her defeat to Wang in the first repechage round in the afternoon, but her determination to reach Beijing saw her through when she came up against Hyon. But her eligibility to represent Hong Kong at the Beijing Games hangs in the balance as she is several months away from meeting requirements for an SAR passport. In the men's competition, Japan's Jun Mizutani and Seiya Kishikawa, Yoon Jae-young of South Korea and Ri Chol-guk of North Korea qualified for the Games. Hong Kong's Cheung Yuk beat Taiwan's Chiang Peng-lung to stay in contention for the final Olympics berth. He will now need to beat Jang Song-man of North Korea today to reach Beijing.
