The Swimming Team participated in The Community Chest Wheelock Swim for Millions 2016 at Repulse Bay Beach on 30October 2016. Our team, represented by Mr. Allen Che, Mr.Pierre Lui, Mr. Robert Sit and Swimming Captain Mr.TC Chan, managed to come 17th in spite of the fierce competition among the 61 participating corporate relay teams.
Ms. May Tam, Ms. Helen Ho and Swimming Convenor Ms. Vicky Man also represented the Law Society in the Golden Kilometer Race of this event. Toughness and tenacity were demonstrated in this race as participants were required to swim for 500 m and run for around 100 m on the beach before they dived into the water again to complete the remaining 500 m swim.
Swimming Convenor Ms. Agnes Chan and her brother also won the champion in the Family Relay Race.
Our team spirit in this race was extended in memory of our late team member Mr. Kevin Ng, who represented the Law Society and his firm King & Wood Mallesons to participate in the same event in previous years. Kevin unfortunately passed away on 9 August 2016 due to an unexpected medical condition during a hike. The Community Chest Wheelock Swim for Millions 2015 was the last team event in which Kevin participated with our team. The Swimming Team thus dedicated this event to honour Kevin as our “Teammate Forever”. Mrs. Claire Ng, Kevin’s mother kindly came to support our team at the event and brought us the swimming cap no. 37C used by Kevin last year.
The Swimming Team has regular practices every Wednesday from 9 to 10 pm. Interested members may contact Mr.Robert Chan of the Law Society Secretariat for more information. We welcome you to join us in our regular practices!
Mr. Allen Che
