Day 4 – 2nd July at the World Masters Athletics in Tampere Finland saw Willie Kung bag a bronze medal for Hong Kong in the M60 Long Jump. Fantastic achievement by Willie. In the W40 200m heats Grace Tong broke the Hong Kong age group record in 30.36 secs. Way to go Grace!
In the M40 200m heats good solid performance by Charles Wong in his first World Masters Athletics Championships, gaining valuable experience. Jackie Ho was seeded in the A final of the M60 5,000 and ran a very quick 19 mins 39 sec for an overall placing of 14th out of 27 runners. Great result by Jackie. Jackie still has the M60 1,500 metres and M60 Half Marathon later in the week.
Peter Lam M55 rested his sore hamstring and gave the 200m a miss to concentrate on the 400m. Today Day 5 no Hong Kong athletes competing.
Note: Mon 4th July is a rest day for all athletes whilst the WMA general assembly takes place.
You can watch Day 5 events in the main stadium live. Mainly 200 semi and final and Javelin. Starts at 2.30pm hkt.
