Four top local women swimmers have qualified for the London Olympics – and expressed hope they will beat their Hong Kong records while there.
Stephanie Au Hoi-shun will participate in 100m and 200m backstroke events in London, Sze Hang-yu in the 200m freestyle, Natasha Tang Wing- yung in the women’s marathon swmming (10km) and Hannah Wilson in the 100m freestyle and 100m butterfly.
Au, who took bronze in the 4x100m relay along with Sze and Wilson at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, said she is confident of breaking her own records during the Olympics. Au also won four medals – including a bronze in the 400m freestyle – at the 2009 East Asian Games.
Tang, who is ranked No 1 in Asia, said: “I hope that I will reach another height at the London Olympics.”
