As a full-time athlete since 2004, she has brought Hong Kong honour in the international sporting arena with outstanding results, including gold medals in various competitions of the Asian Games in 2010, 2014 and 2018 as well as clinching gold at the World Championships in 2013 and 2019.   Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui also lauded Ms Lee’s excellent achievements in Olympic Games, bringing so much joy and surprises to the sports sector in Hong Kong.   He said that she has become a role model for Hong Kong athletes.   Mr Tsui also thanked Head Coach Shen Jinkang and his team for their great contribution to the cycling team.
