At the Summer Universiade, four athletes won 2 gold and 2 bronze medals, making them eligible for a total of HK$1.3 million in cash awards. A further HK$2.22 million was given to the 18 athletes who wrapped up the NG with a historic count of 2 gold, 7 silver and 7 bronze medals, more than double the number of medals won at the last National Games.
