HK & Olympics 2012: First Medal in the Games

Hong Kong won its first medal in the games on Friday in women’s cycling, with Sarah Wai-sze Lee taking bronze.  This is the first time Hong Kong has won a medal in cycling, and is only its third medal in all Olympic history! 

Interestingly, gold went to Great Britain and silver to China — so the flags that went up also had some meaning —  as we all know Hong Kong was handed back from Great Britain to China in 1997. 

Though I am cheering on the USA in any and every sport, I have found myself getting pumped on behalf of Hong Kong, rooting them on whenever they are televised and hoping the best for my adopted country.  On Sunday, I admit I got into table tennis, rooting Hong Kong’s men’s team as they defeated Japan to go into the semi-finals! 

Go Hong Kong!
