Tiffany Chan and Sophie Han have been nominated in the Cathay Pacific 2019 Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards, the results of which will be announced at the Awards Presentation Ceremony on March 24 at the Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Tiffany Chan features in the Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards list, whilst Sophie Han has been nominated in the Hong Kong Junior Sports Stars Awards, as well as in a new category introduced this year, the Hong Kong Sports Stars Breakthrough of the Year Awards.
Now in their 20th year, the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong Sports Stars Awards’ primary objectives are to encourage Hong Kong athletes and teams to strive for excellence; to provide role models and inspiration for young people, and thus help to promote local sports development; and to encourage more
community involvement in sports.
With the Tokyo Olympic Games rapidly approaching, Timothy Fok, GBS, JP, President of the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China, announced the slogan and logo for this year’s Awards as “Road to Tokyo – Go Hong Kong Team!”
“Besides promoting the [Olympic] Games, the logo represents our support of Hong Kong athletes on their quest for Olympic qualification,” said Fok at the Public Voting Announcement Press Conference.
Tiffany Chan, an EFG Global Sport Ambassador and Hong Kong Golf Club Ambassador, recently remarked: “I have been on the LPGA Tour for two full seasons and feel like I made a lot of progress in 2019. My focus now is on making the step up and qualifying for all the major events as well as the Olympics, where
I think I can really contribute positively to the Hong Kong team.”
“The Hong Kong Sport Stars Awards celebrate excellence, progressiveness and an unyielding can-do spirit – values that Cathay Pacific shares and embraces as cornerstones of our new brand platform ‘Move Beyond’,” added Edward Bell, General Manager, Brand, Insights & Marketing Communications of
Cathay Pacific. “Our Hong Kong athletes exemplify these ideals, never ceasing to push the boundaries as they strive for success.”
