Hong Kong boccia player Leung Yuk-wing to fight for bronze| 31 Aug 2021 7:31 pm
Hong Kong boccia player Leung Yuk-wing will fight for bronze in the BC4 individual event tomorrow after losing to Pornchok Larpyen in the semifinals.
He will be playing in the bronze medal match tomorrow morning against China’s Zheng Yuansen, after Zheng lost to 24-year-old Slovakian Samuel Andrejcik 2-5 in the other semifinal.
In the match against Larpyen, who snatched bronze in both the individual and pair events in the 2016 Rio Paralympics, Leung made two critical mistakes in the penultimate end which made him suffer a two-point deficit into the final end.
Leung, competing in his fifth Paralympics, lost the game 3-6.
He will also be competing alongside Vivian Lau Wai-yan on Thursday in the BC4 pairs event.
