She served as a student ambassador, and she also has several outstanding sporting achievements to her name. Nicole was the captain of the HKBU swimming team for four consecutive years, and she led the team to participate in training sessions and different competitions.    Nicole started swimming training when she was a child, and as a result, she was familiar with the daily routine of intensive training in the early mornings before heading to campus for her classes. She said that apart from improving her physical fitness, sport has also helped her develop a positive and persevering attitude. Nicole is grateful for the opportunities and trust that she received during her studies at HKBU. She has now been hired as a secondary school physical education teacher, and she is determined to help her students nurture their own talents.   Nearly 100 tertiary students from different institutions competed for the Outstanding Tertiary Student of Hong Kong award, which was organised for the first time this year. Candidates had to go through two rounds of interviews and a public vote. Ten winners were then selected by the organiser. The event aims to discover, praise and nurture tertiary students with potential who care about society and show concern for the future development of the Greater Bay Area. It also promotes whole-person development and heightens the students’ sense of national identity. 2021.10.19 20211018_2 HKBU outstanding athletes share their Olympic journeys at homecoming event Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) held the “Homecoming Gathering for HKBU Athletes in Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games-cum-Social Sciences in Dialogue” today (18 October) to commend Sarah Lee Wai-sze, Daniel Chan Ho-yuen, Chan Chung-wang and Ho Yuen-kei for their exemplary performances at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.   Sarah Lee, a bronze medalist in the Women’s Sprint at the Olympic Games, and Daniel Chan, a bronze medalist in the Badminton Men’s Singles WH2 event at the Paralympic Games, are students of the Bachelor of Arts in Creative and Professional Writing programme and the Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education and Recreation Management programme, respectively.   Chan Chung-wang, a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education and Recreation Management programme, competed in the Men’s 110m Hurdles at the Olympic Games, whereas Ho Yuen-kei, an alumna of the Bachelor of Social Sciences in China Studies programme, participated in the boccia competitions at the Paralympic Games.   At the event hosted by HKBU’s Faculty of Social Sciences, Dr Clement Chen Cheng-jen, Chairman of the Council and the Court, and Professor Alexander Wai, President and Vice-Chancellor of HKBU, presented the “HKBU Olympian and Paralympian Appreciation Award”, which included a cash prize of HK$150,000, to each of the four outstanding athletes in recognition of their achievements at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.   In his welcome address, Professor Alexander Wai said that the four athletes are fighters who have shown great perseverance.
