Young Hong Kong athletes were recognised for their outstanding achivements at the 16th A.S. Watson Group Hong Kong Student Sports Awards. This year, 883 student sports elites from Hong Kong primary, secondary and special schools were honoured, in a ceremony that was livestreamed for the first time so that winners could share their joy with friends and family members. Over 85% of Hong Kong schools now take part in the awards, and promote a “Yes I can!” spirit that has helped keep young athletes motivated during the past year. Daniel Chan, one of Hong Kong’s top para badminton athletes, who has secured a spot in the Tokyo Paralympic Games, spoke at the awards ceremony about his journey from life-changing traffic accident to becoming Hong Kong’s top wheelchair badminton player. He encouraged students to remain positive in the face of adversity and fight to realise their dreams.

Proof that you are never too old to learn, and never too young to volunteer!
