Statement from GGHK2022 on Hong Kong’s Achievements at Tokyo 2020 Olympics

On the back of the historic success for Hong Kong’s athletes at Tokyo 2020 Olympics, the Gay Games 11 Hong Kong 2022 team offers our huge congratulations to each of the medal winners for their euphoric triumphs this summer. 

Hong Kong is proudly celebrating Gold Medal success for Cheung Ka Long in the men’s individual foil, along with two Silver Medals for Siobhan Houghey in the women’s 100m and 200m freestyle, and three Bronze Medal wins for Doo Hoi Kem, Lee Ho Ching and Minnie Soo in the women’s table tennis team event, Grace Lau in the women’s solo kata, and Sarah Lee in the women’s track cycling sprint.

Their success is not only a resounding personal achievement in representing Hong Kong on the world stage, but also serves as an important springboard for next year’s Gay Games in November. Well done to the entire Hong Kong team for creating history in what was the city’s most successful ever Olympics!

As we look to ride the momentum from these monumental achievements, the first Gay Games in Asia will be yet another opportunity for us to show off Hong Kong’s increasing prominence in global sports at the world’s most inclusive sporting event in 2022. Across 36 sports, Gay Games looks forward to welcoming 12,000 participants from all over the world regardless of ability, background, sexual orientation, gender identity, race and creed. It’s never too late to pick up a sport today and compete next year. We’ve also added non-Olympic sports such as dragonboat, esports and trail running!

Do you dream of becoming a sports participant in a global sports event? This is your chance! Whether you have been playing your sport for 20 years, or just started, everyone is welcome! Any connection to LGBTQ is not necessary.

Pre-registration is now open for interested participants, so be sure to sign up for what will be a defining event to showcase the city’s sporting prowess from all walks of life. We offer special funding support with free registration for young people aged 18-25 from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Mainland China, and ASEAN member states. The same fee waiver is also offered to foreign domestic helpers, refugees and asylum seekers based in Hong Kong. More details are available at the Games web site gghk2022.com

Hong Kong, this is our time to shine and make world history together!
