WTOC 2016: Hong Kong



Present in the last five editions of the World Trail Orienteering Championships, the Hong Kong team performed modestly once again. The most positive achievement was in the TempO, where Hong Kong placed two elements for the first time ever into the Final and Kwok-Wai Cheung, finishing 18th, got the best result ever of an Hong Kong athlete in this format. The goal continues to focus on the experience that one can take from a high level event like this, even more when Hong Kong has just been appointed to organize the World Trail Orienteering Championships in 2020.

+ It's hard not to elect Kwok-Wai Cheung as the great figure of Hong Kong in this Championships, especially after the 18th place achieved in the TempO final.

- Taking part in the Championships for the fourth year in a row, Chi Hin Luk got in Strömstad his worst result ever in PreO. Also the performance in the TempO race was below the expectations, getting him away from the final.
