Gymnast Angel wins bronze in major tournament
Ms Angel Wong Hiu-ying, an alumna of PolyU’s Institute of Textiles and Clothing, recently won a bronze medal in the balance beam contest at the Artistic Gymnastics World Cup held in Doha. This is the first time for Hong Kong to clinch a medal in this event. Congratulations!
Taking part in the London Olympics in 2012, Angel was the first local female gymnast to qualify for the Games, and became the first Hong Kong athlete to have a balance beam move named after her.
Angel originally devoted herself to vaulting; however, knee injuries forced her to switch to balance beam competitions. The latest award is a great testament to her perseverance and hard work over the years.
