Pole-vaulter Choi Sin-ting made a plea for more resources after she broke the Hong Kong women’s record by clearing 3.4 metres at the Inter-city Championships on Sunday. A flight attendant, the amateur athlete smashed the old mark by 10 centimetres at Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground but admitted there is still a long way to go. “You won’t be able to compete in Asia if you cannot clear like 3.9 metres,” said the 26-year-old, who converted from the high jump in 2009. “There are only three sets of proper equipment in Hong Kong and the pool of competitors is small. Most of the time we cannot even have a domestic competition because we can’t find three participants. We need more resources before we can develop it properly.” Yu Xinxin of Zhejiang won the event at 3.6m while Choi was second. In the men’s javelin, Yu Chi-siu broke the Hong Kong record with a throw of 63.98m, second behind Zhejiang’s Wu Yibing at 66.47m.
