LONG WAIT
After winning two gold medals at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens at age 19, he had to wait another 10 years before finishing on top of the podium at another major international event. He finally broke his barren spell with victory in the individual and pairs events at the 2014 World Championships in Beijing, People's Republic of China. "After winning the titles in Athens 2004, I put too much pressure on myself. I could not see any changes even though I trained very hard. I was about to give up, but I did not because I love the game. I love boccia." (news.gov.hk, 06 Nov 2016; paralympic.org, 04 Dec 2014)
