40 Scholarship Athletes of the Hong Kong Sports Institute (HKSI) sat this year's Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination (HKCEE). Of them, 67% have obtained five subject passes, which included Chinese, English and Mathematics.

Among them, swimmer Fung Wing-yan and squash player Au Wing-chi have obtained the best results. Fung has brilliantly achieved 3A1B4C (25 marks) and will continue Form 6 in Diocesan Girls' School while Au attained 2B3C1D (19 marks) and will continue studies in Jockey Club Ti-I College. The encouraging result proves that although athletes have to spend more time and effort on balancing their study and training, they can still do well on both areas if they work hard and allocate their time wisely.

Squash player Au Wing-chi, who helped the girls' team to win the World Junior Championships last year, is quite pleased with her HKCEE results. "The life as an athlete makes me more self-disciplined and trains me to better allocate the time in both training and study," said Au. "I am confident that I can take care of both sport and study in the future."

In overall, 15 athletes have been admitted to Form 6 by their respective secondary schools for further studies, including rower Leung Chun-ming, squash player Chan Ho-ling, table tennis player Chan Yun-hang and windsurfer Kou Cheuk-ling. Besides, seven athletes including cyclist Szeto Hin-leong who has gained 13 marks, indicated that he decided to change to full time training a year ago due to his passion to sport.

Regina Chan, Athlete Affairs Manager of the HKSI, is satisfied with the results, saying, "Athletes have to pay extra effort in order to achieve good results in examination. They undertake long hours of intensive training and therefore only have limited time to study. They demonstrate the qualities such as determination, a positive attitude and the spirit of sport to those around them and to society."
