Yiu Says

My nickname is...

Christy.

I’m inspired by...

my coaches’ encouragement and esteem.

In my bag...

I always have a fitness watch with GPS and a heart-rate sensor, KT tape, Nike shoes, pants, socks and a bra-top.

On my day off...

I love to read, write and go to the movies.

If I wasn’t an athlete...

I would be a nurse.

I want my legacy to be...

that I brought honor to Hong Kong, achieved a high ranking and broke the 20-year-old marathon record.
