The Macau diving team has participated in the 10th Singapore National Diving Championships by invitation, winning a total of 11 medals over three days.
The competition was held between June 7 and 9 at the island country’s OCBC Aquatic Centre.
Team Macau deployed a hybrid team consisting of veterans and new athletes. Several new faces made it onto the podium during the three-day competition.
The team had a good start, as the first day of the series of contests saw Tang Hio Fong, a new face on the team, win a silver medal in the 3-meter Open Category Single.
On the second day, veteran Tsui Sut Kuan partnered with Tang to compete in the 3-meter Open Category Mixed Double, in which they secured a gold medal. Lei Ming Hin, on the other hand, won silver in the 16 to 18-year-old 3-meter Women’s Single. Leong Sut In won silver in the 10-meter, Tang won another silver in the 1-meter and newcomer Wu Hio Tong won bronze in the 1-meter.
Team Macau continued to perform well on the third day. Another new face, Ho Lok I, championed the 1-meter match for new female divers, while Leong and her twin sister Sut Chan got the laurel for the 10-meter Women’s Open Category. Lei won another silver, Tsui and Leong Sut Chan’s partnership secured them bronze and Lam Chi Hei also won bronze.
