Six medals for Hong Kong's Paralympic stars at Rio
Hong Kong athletes enjoyed a successful Paralympics which was held on 7 - 18 September, returning from Rio with two gold, two silver and two bronze medals.

Leung Yuk-wing (boccia, mixed individual BC4) and Tang Wai-lok (swimming, men's 200m freestyle S14) took the golds.

Tang's stunning win in the Olympics Aquatics Stadium was a new Games record as he touched in one minute 56.32 seconds. The 19-year-old was just a fraction off the world record (1:56.27) and just missed out on another medal when he was fourth in 100m backstroke.

"I am so happy to have won the gold medal," said Tang, who was sixth in the 200m at the London Paralympics. "This is not only my personal best but also a Games record. I have never thought of it."

His achievements saw him fly the flag for Hong Kong at the closing ceremony.

In boccia, veteran Leung returned to the top of the podium after winning an individual gold in Athens 2004, beating Samuel Andrejcik of Slovakia 4-3 in a close final.

Leung won gold in Athens 2004 and silver in Beijing four years later.

"I feel very happy to get a gold this time," said Leung. "I did not win anything at the London 2012 Games and so I had to review my performance and worked hard again."

"Two years later I got two golds in the world championships and now I have made it again in the Rio Paralympics."

"I am so happy. The final was not easy as I was trailing two points in the first game, but fortunately I was able to get back to the table point by point."

There were three medals for the wheelchair fencers, Yu Chui-yee with silver in the women's individual foil category A and Chan Yui-chong with bronze in the women's epee category B.

Chan and Yu also helped the epee team take silver with Justine Charissa Ng. The trio missed out on gold after China beat them 45-35 in the final but improved on the bronze they won in London.

Yu had 9 medals under her belt before Rio and had been unbeaten in the foil since Athens. But Rong Jing of China was too strong in the final this time, beating her 15-8. She said,"I have tried my best in every match. My hard work and effort still paid off though being the runner-up. Thank you for all your support to the Hong Kong team."

Hong Kong's other medal was won by Ng Mui-wui in table tennis as she reached the semi-finals of the women's singles - Class 11.
