HKSAR’s High Jump Athlete
Cecilia Yeung Man-wai, Hong Kong Women’s High Jump record holder, has been representing Hong Kong since 2016. In April 2017, she set Hong Kong’s women’s high jump record of 1.88 m and won a silver medal at the Asian Championships the same year. Under her belt is an even longer list of international awards, to name but a few: Asian Indoor Games 2017 Bronze Medalist, World Universiade 2017 finalist, All China Games 2017 the 5th Place, Asian Games 2018 the 5th Place, and Asian Athletics Championships 2019 the 5th Place.
As a graduate with a double-major degree in Marketing and Business Design & Innovation at the University of Hong Kong, this young top star of track and field is also active in enlightening the public with her speeches. This year’s theme, REstart, strikes a chord with Cecilia as she will share with us how her sports injury transformed her into who she is today, a professional athlete, together with a model and an inspirational speaker.
