CE congratulates Hong Kong table tennis athletes on winning bronze medal in team event at Tokyo Olympics

     The Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, today (August 5) wholeheartedly congratulated Hong Kong table tennis athletes Lee Ho-ching, Doo Hoi-kem, Soo Wai-yam and Zhu Chengzhu on winning a bronze medal in the Table Tennis Women's Team competition at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. This is the fourth medal won by the Hong Kong, China Delegation in this Olympic Games, and the second time the Hong Kong, China Delegation has won a medal in a table tennis competition of the Olympic Games, following a silver medal-winning performance in the Athens Olympics in 2004.
     Mrs Lam said, "I'm moved by the great perseverance and tenacity displayed by the Hong Kong table tennis team in the competition. Though they have gone through ups and downs in their previous competitions, they continued to demonstrate solidarity. Their full engagement in the team competition deserves our great respect. I'm delighted by the success of the team led by Li Ching, the coach, who was one of the silver medallists in the Men's Doubles of the Athens Olympics. It shows the great tradition of our athletes who pass the baton to the younger generations.

     "This Olympic Games has entered the final stage. I hope Hong Kong athletes can continue to achieve outstanding results in the remaining competitions and bring glory to the city."
