Hong Kong’s Ng Ka-fung said he needs more time to take what he learned from Asia’s fastest man Su Bingtian before it shows on the track. A day after winning the 100 metres at the Hong Kong Athletics Series 2 meet in a pedestrian 10.71 seconds, Ng, who has spent the past three months training with Su in Shenzhen, finished 200m in third place on Sunday at Tseung Kwan O Sports Ground.

It will take some time to make it work on the track.” Ng will have another chance to show the training across the border has made a difference at the third leg of the series at Wan Chai Sports Ground next weekend. A good time could be the difference between competing at the World Championships in Oregon in July or staying at home. With none of the city’s athletes getting close to the qualifying mark, the Hong Kong Association of Athletics Affiliates may send one wild card entry to compete in the United States. So far, Ng and marathon runner Christy Yiu Kit-ching are heading the race for selection, but several who are training overseas, such as hurdler Vera Lui Lai-yiu and long jumper Chan Ming-tai, are also in with a chance. Hong Kong sprinter Ng Ka-fung to train with China’s track star Su Bingtian “It would be great if I can take part in the World Championships as this will be an invaluable experience,” Ng said. “All the hard work and effort will pay off if I can go to Oregon but still I have to see.” Simon Yeung Sai-mo, chairman of the selection committee, said a decision would be made in June based on an internal points system and other factors, including injuries. “He [Ng] had such an opportunity to work with the fastest man of Asia and we all want to see how it works for him,” Yeung said. Ng, who will be 30 in October, said age was not a factor and planned to continue focusing on both the 100m and 200m, although he acknowledge the intensity of his training was not as high as it used to be. “Maybe I cannot sustain high-intensity training as I did during my younger days but as long as I can adjust the programme and avoid getting injured, it should be fine,” he said. While wanting to break his own 100m record, Ng also wants to set a new one at 200m. In the women’s 200m, Lao Wing-yan came first in 27.14 secs in a race that did not include top sprinters Leung Kwan-yi and Chan Pui-kei. To Yuen-kwan also failed to improve her Hong Kong record in the women’s discuss with a best throw of 41.55 metres. She set the record 42.75 in Series 1 two weeks ago. “I feel a bit tired after the shot put on the first day and could not finish my action in the best position, hopefully I can do better in next week’s Series 3,” To said. Chung Wai-yan won the women’s high jump in 1.71 metres, with Hong Kong record holder Cecilia Yeung Man-wai and Tiffany Tang Yi-ching both training in Portugal.
