Three athletes who took part in Hong Kong's May 2 torch relay leg have spoken of the honour they felt at being chosen to run, despite having barely heard of the relay when they were small. Adrian Tam Wai-yeung, Yeung Chui-ling and Bjork Cheng Yuk-han - all in their 20s - said that as young children they did not realise there was a meaningful relay before the Olympic Games. 'I never thought the torch would be coming to Hong Kong,' Cheng said, adding that last time the relay was in town was almost 40 years ago, when the Games were in Tokyo. Fellow fencer Yeung said: 'When I saw windsurfing gold medallist Lee Lai-shan receive the honour [Games medal] on the television, I wanted to be part of the Olympics.' Yeung, Hong Kong's only women's epee Olympic qualifier, said now that her dream of participating in the Games had come true, she aimed to fulfil another: 'To get a medal is my target and dream, but most importantly, it is to do my very best. Nothing is impossible.' Tam, who plays basketball, said his parents were very proud of him, adding: 'They say I have brought honour to the family.' The trio - all students in Baptist University's physical education and recreation management programme - have represented Hong Kong in sporting events. But none expected to be chosen as one of the 120 Hong Kong torch-bearers, especially Cheng, who said the honour made her graduation year very special. After graduating, she hopes to get a job in recreation management, while Tam, who will finish his education diploma this year, is aiming to be a physical education teacher. After the Olympics, Yeung will return to Baptist University to complete her degree.
