A full breakdown of all Hong Kong’s athletes in action on Monday, August 20
The 2018 Asian Games are finally in full swing in Indonesia. It’s a crucial day of action for several of Hong Kong’s teams with a few of the squad’s big hitters beginning their campaign on day two.
Hong Kong’s men’s football team are in action later today against hosts Indonesia. It will be fantastic atmosphere at the Patriot Chandrabhaga Stadium with both sides needing a result to progress automatically as one of the top two teams, joining Palestine in the last 16. A point will suffice for Kenneth Kwok’s side, while the hosts need a win to leapfrog Hong Kong into second place. It’s sure to be a fiery atmosphere.
Kenneth To King-him represents one of Hong Kong’s best hopes in the pool and he starts his Asian Games in the 200-metre individual medley this morning. Elsewhere in the pool, Camille Cheng Lily-mei flies the flag for the women in the 100m freestyle.
There’s growing hope that Hong Kong’s rowers can deliver a medal in Palembang. Lee Ka-man goes off this morning in the women’s lightweight single skulls before the men’s lightweight eight race in their heat later in the morning.
Hong Kong’s men’s team face a tough task in the quarter-finals when they take on China at 3pm.
