When I was small, there was a table near where I lived and I used to play table tennis with my dad. It was fun. My interest grew from there and I started joining the practice sessions. 'It was hard to adapt to the training when I first joined the Hong Kong junior team. When I was at the academy, I trained three days a week. That grew to six days a week, which was exhausting. 'In time I got used to it and found that my performance improved a lot. 'I like playing table tennis because the movement of the ball is very fast. I have to really concentrate in matches. The sport trains my speed, actions and reactions. I like this challenging sport. 'I'm now in Form Five and I'll be taking the HKCEE soon. That's why I have cut my training time in half. I know I need some time to return to peak condition after the exams are over. I might consider becoming a full-time player, but it depends on the results of my exams.' From his coach 'He's a very hard working player. He's very devoted and spends lots of time in table tennis. This drives him to improve quickly,' said coach Dong Lun. Ambitions 'I will strive to do my best at the Asian Junior Championships in Jaipur, India in July. I have to at least get into the semi-finals so that I can have the chance to represent Hong Kong at the World Junior Championship in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in December.'
