There are 46 Olympians representing Hong Kong this year at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games , and the city couldn’t be more excited. Just two days ago, Edgar Cheung Ka-long delivered Hong Kong’s second-ever gold medal – and first in 25 years – after winning the fencing individual foil on Monday. His name and the hashtag #fencing has been trending in the region ever since.

Her success also marks the first time a Hong Kong swimmer has reached an Olympic final, and we have no doubt that everyone in the city has been cheering the freestyler on. Meet the 13-year-old Japanese skateboarder who just won Olympic gold So here’s what we know about the 23-year-old Olympic star. She’s been swimming since she was a toddler Haughey’s parents, who also loved swimming, taught their two daughters how to swim at the pool at their home complex, before later taking Siobhan and her older sister Aisling to a swim club nearby. There, Haughey started swimming lessons – at age four. The rest is Olympic history! She’s got the tattoo It’s probably the only tattoo that tiger mums would allow and, according to Haughey, it’s the only one she’d ever get. The iconic tattoo of the Olympic rings is considered a rite of passage for many Olympians, including archer Brady Ellison, gymnast Vanessa Ferrari and diver Tom Daley – who Haughey has also met.

But that won’t stop me from moving forward. #inked #oneandonly” 6 LGBT athletes who made history at the Olympic Games She landed a swimsuit collection with Arena Haughey became the first-ever Hong Kong swimmer to sign with competitive swimwear brand Arena in 2019, releasing a signature swimsuit collection ahead of Christmas last year, displaying the swimmer’s inspirational message in its designs.

Unfortunately for new fans of the hometown Olympian, the Arena x Haughey swimsuit was limited edition – but here’s hoping for a new issue? Which Olympic team gets the gold for most fashionable uniform? She’s a St. Paul’s and UMich alum Haughey studied at both St. Paul’s College Primary School and St. Paul’s Secondary School in Hong Kong, before continuing her tertiary education stateside at the University of Michigan. According to the university website, her expected major was psychology, but she was interested in studying at UMich specifically because a former swimmer had recommended one of the coaches at the school. 6 celebs who went (or nearly went) to the Olympics She’s got a global support network The 23-year-old continued her swimming training at Michigan even after she graduated. Due to Covid-19 lockdowns in the US, Haughey only returned to Hong Kong in June last year, but her UMich coach continued to train her via workouts conveyed to the swim department at the Hong Kong Sports Institute. The Sports Institute’s head swimming coach Chen Jianhong has previously thanked his American counterpart for the support. “With so many coaching staff working together at the Sports Institute, it can definitely have a good effect,” Chen said in May – and it’s clear from today’s performance his prediction was not unfounded.
