Bravo! The Final Show of PEK Unveils / Bravo!2016/17高彥鳴教授盃最終篇

(按此看中文版)

Minutes before the final competition of Professor Edmond Ko Cup 2016/17, Wong Cheung Lo Hui Yuet Hall has already been filled up by student residents sitting with their respected halls. Dedicated supporters didn’t mind sitting on the stairs with their neon-lit banners and hall t-shirts. If hall belongingness couldn’t be described by words this event would be the perfect picture to show it.

As the competition started, darkness of the auditorium giving all the spot light on to the stage and the performers. The solo performance was marked with such high energy start from a rap song “I” by WANG Yuhao (Chan Sui Kau Hall, Year 3, Environmental Policy). There was a great variety of songs that were performed from western ballad love songs to Chinese classic, from Canto pop songs to alternative rock. Not only vocal skills were apparent but their emotions took over the whole atmosphere.

Hall 7’s Edly WAI / 群萃堂的衞嘉宜

As amazing as the competitors were, the guest performances also took the auditorium by storm. CHAN Ying Chun (Hall 10, Year 4, Business Analysis) electrified the room when he showed off his juggling skills. Spinning, turning and tossing surely got everyone surprised. Savannah WEI (Jockey Club Humanity Hall, Year 1, Undeclared) and Ivana ZHANG (Alumni Civility Hall, Year 1, Computing Mathematics) performed “Come On, Get Higher” and mesmerized the audience with a touch of light acoustic.

It was amazing to see the crowd go from utter silence, showing deep respect and attention for the performance, suddenly roars and hall chants took over right after every performance.

The group performance was the main highlight – with complicated and synchronized dance choreography that has been practiced for weeks and hours, to the dynamic transition of their formations that looks like it has been planned intricately.

The group performances made the audience feel as if they were in a paid concert. Creativity was apparent in the way the performers mashed up multiple songs into one; doing their own rendition and adding a bit of themselves on to songs that we would normally hear on Spotify.

Final guest performers were, Mr. LEUNG Lappong, alumnus from Jockey Club Academy Hall, to the rock band of Sustain both doing their own versions of popular Cantonese songs.

Everyone held their breath, anticipated cheers rested at the back of everyone’s throat; Judges and important guests came up on stage to announce the winner. Taking the first place for solo performance was Edly WAI’s (Residence Tutor of Jockey Club Harmony Hall, Year 1, Juris Doctor) “Tian Xia Wu Shuang (天下無雙)”, that classic Chinese song with high pitched voice surely deserves this award. Sharing the Champion banner were CHEUNG Yuen Yan’s (Jockey Club Humanity Hall, Year 1, Undeclared) “Million Reasons” and HUI Ka Hang’s (Lee Shau Kee Hall, Year 1, Undeclared) “I Know You Are Sad (我知道你很難過). The announcement then moved to the group performance awards with Qoo&Nam of Alumni Civility Hall taking up the second place, The Puppets of Jockey Club Humanity Hall taking up the first place, and Seventh Harmony of Jockey Club Harmony Hall taking up the Champion.

The Final Show of PEK Cup was then unveiled. Scores from the PEK sports events were tallied up and the Trophy Cup was brought to the stage and the whole auditorium heated up. The second runner-up… Hall 10, the first runner-up… Jockey Club Humanity Hall, and finally the final Cup was given to Jockey Club Harmony Hall!

THAT WAS THE WRAP of PEK Cup 2016 – 2017! Congratulations to everyone who participated!

就在高彥鳴教授盃聯舍歌唱比賽開始幾分鐘前, 黃翔羅許月伉儷講堂已經坐滿了來自各個舍堂的應援團,甚至階梯上都坐滿了人。他們穿著自己舍堂的T裇,舉著霓虹燈橫幅,心無旁騖地為自己的舍堂加油喝彩。還有什麼比這更能體現宿生和舍堂之間深刻的羈絆呢?

比賽開始了,聚光燈照亮舞台之上的表演者們,成為昏暗禮堂中最閃亮的地方。個人表演中最出彩的當屬來自陳瑞球堂的王宇豪(環保政策學系三年級)帶來的動感饒舌 —《I》。 個人表演曲目豐富多樣,從歐美抒情民謠,中式經典,粵語流行到另類搖滾樣樣俱全。而帶動全場氣氛的不僅是表演者們高超的唱功,更是充沛洋溢的情感。

嘉賓演出和唱歌比賽一樣精彩動人,贏來掌聲雷動;來自舍堂十的陳英俊(商業分析學系四年級)用他絕妙的雜耍表演讓全場氣氛燃到高點。令人眼花繚亂的旋轉與拋擲讓每個人都驚羨無比。魏珂(賽馬會敬賢堂/一年級)和張清源(校友樂禮堂/計算數學學系一年級)的小清新吉他演奏「Come On, Get Higher」更是繞梁三尺。

讓人驚訝的還有看著觀眾從完全的寂靜到每次表演結束時爆發喝彩。每個舍堂的加油聲都不絕於耳。

團體表演是這次比賽的最大亮點–那支看上去無比復雜,像是經過數周練習才能達到的整齊一致的編舞,以一種令人目眩神迷的方式呈現在觀眾眼前。

團體表演讓觀眾覺得自己仿佛置身於演唱會現場。歌者將幾首歌曲完美融合為一首,毫無保留地釋放自己的創意;獨特的演繹方式和歌唱中無可取代的自我表達,讓觀眾們聽到了平日在Spotify中播放的歌曲的另一種可能性。最後的嘉賓演出由賽馬會群智堂舊生梁立邦及搖滾樂隊Sustain傾力演唱,為節目掀起高潮。

接下來是大家屏息以待的賽果公佈。獨唱項目出現了雙冠軍,由演唱《Million Reasons》的張琬茵(賽馬會敬賢堂/一年級)和演唱《我知道你很難過》的許嘉亨(李兆基堂/一年級)共同獲得,以海豚高音主唱《天下無雙》的衞嘉宜(賽馬會群萃堂/法律博士一年級)則榮獲第三。團體表演的冠亞季分別由賽馬會群萃堂的Seventh Harmony、賽馬會敬賢堂的The Puppets 及校友樂禮堂的Qoo&Nam 獲得。

本年度的高彥鳴教授盃最後歸於群萃堂所有,可喜可賀!

Got Game? / 你看球賽了嗎?

The annual Professor Edmond Ko Cup (PEK Cup) inter-hall competitions have gone in a full swing with the first wave being the soccer competitions. I attended the Joint Sports Centre last Sunday (23 October) when our athletes brought us four exciting inter-hall battles. Each team sent five players (including a goalkeeper) for a 40-minute match. The schedule went as follows:

> Hall 11 vs HSBC Prosperity Hall (Hall 2) vs Chan S
> Hall 8 & Jockey Club Houseui Kau Hall (Hall 5)
> Lee Shau Kee Hall (Hall 6) vs Jockey Club Humanity Hall (Hall 1)
> Hall 11 vs Sir Gordon and Lady Ivy Wu Hall (Hall 9)

Let me recap some highlights for you for the first match! The first team entering the field in turquoise was Hall 11 followed by the navy-blue Prosperians. Both teams were in good spirit. Soon after the game has begun, Hall 11 scored the first goal after some chase. The Prosperians did not panic. Instead, they sped up the passing. Their striker accidentally kicked the ball too hard and fell as he passed. What touched me was the moment when a Hall 11 player helped him getting up and they patted each other as mutual encouragement and gratitude. Such spirit of respect and understanding filled the course with warmth.

The Prosperians then headed the ball straight in line. Unfortunately, their initial try was blocked by Paul TANG, the Hall 11 goalkeeper. At that instant, the Prosperians nabbed to attack the empty side of the goal. IN! The Prosperians got all excited and took a stranglehold of the momentum. Tang rocketed up, almost waved off the ball, and the Prosperians tied another score. The audience gasped as they witnessed Tang throwing himself against the shot. What a painful sacrifice! During the second halftime, the Prosperians kept attacking while Hall 11 also capitalized on their chances. After alternating rounds and rounds of attempt from both sides, the Prosperians grind its way to a 5:1 victory at last.

From a layman’s interpretation, all matches are similar; yet, each and every one of them is meaningful in its own unique way. All soccer players profess the same belief to score a goal, ward off opponents’ shots, run, pass, defense, and offense. All games are made of the same fundamental ingredients and they all share the same goal. Yet the countless variations produced along with all those smart or careless moves spark the magical charm of soccer. What fascinates soccer fans is not about winning or losing, but the unspoken shared spirit and camaraderie among the athletes.

Let me announce the results as of today:

> Hall 11 vs HSBC Prosperity Hall (Hall 2) (1:5)
> Hall 8 & Jockey Club House vs Chan Sui Kau Hall (Hall 5) (1:3)
> Lee Shau Kee Hall (Hall 6) vs Jockey Club Humanity Hall (Hall 1) (4:0)
> Hall 11 vs Sir Gordon and Lady Ivy Wu Hall (Hall 9) (0:1)
> Jockey Club Academy Hall (Hall 4) vs Alumni Civility Hall (Hall 3) (1:3)
> Hall 10 vs Hall 8 & Jockey Club House (3:1)

No matter what the outcome is, what matters the most is how every player in every team has fought hard that they deserve equal respect and appraise. Let’s applause and cheer for them all!

一年一度的高彥鳴教授盃(Professor Edmond Ko Cup,簡稱PEK Cup)各種球賽今年也將進行得如火如荼,最先開始的就是足球啦。上星期日,聯校運動中心,運動員們為我們帶來四場精彩的對決。40分鐘的半場,雙方加守門員各有5位隊員上場,賽程如下:
舍堂十一 vs 滙豐業昕堂
舍堂八 vs 陳瑞球堂
李兆基堂 vs 賽馬會敬賢堂
舍堂十一 vs 胡應湘爵士伉儷堂
小編這就為大家重播第一場的賽況。最先上場的是身穿淡綠色隊服的舍堂十一球員,與身穿藏青色隊服的業昕堂球員,雙方隊員看起來都神采奕奕。球賽正式開始,經過短暫的追逐,舍堂十一先發制人射門成功,業昕堂的球員並沒有慌亂但是加緊了傳球的速度,不料用力過猛,將球傳出以後不慎摔倒,讓小編無比感動的是,舍堂十一的球員把他扶起來,互相輕拍一下表示鼓勵和感謝,儘管是對手,這樣的尊重和默契才讓比賽更多了點人情味。
業昕堂球員漂亮地用頭頂過球傳給隊友,臨門一腳,但被舍堂十一守門員鄧啟亮彈開,此時業昕堂另一名球員抓住時機攻擊球門空出來的一側,成功進球!業昕堂備受鼓舞,持續展開攻擊,再次射門,鄧啟亮飛起但是沒能擋住。只見啟亮直接把自己摔出去用身體擋球,觀眾看著都疼呀。下半場業昕堂始終保持進攻,而舍堂十一也不示弱,雙方輪流將球逼近對方球門前,在各種射門嘗試之後,這場比賽以5:1塵埃落定。

接下來三場小編就不詳細描述了。作為一個門外漢,小編對足球的理解就是,每場比賽都是相似的,每場比賽又都是獨一無二並且意義非凡的。每一場的球員都抱著相同的信念:把球踢進對方的球門,擋住對方的球,奔跑,傳球,防守,射門,本質上講,足球就是這麼目標直接而明確的活動,而它的魅力在於,不同的時間和空間點與這些動作的組合可以產生千變萬化的效果,精妙的,抑或烏龍的。而輸贏的魅力,運動員們于無聲中傳達出的精神與彼此間的情誼,更是讓球迷們深深著迷的地方吧。

最後跟大家匯報一下現時戰績:

舍堂十一 vs 滙豐業昕堂(1:5)
舍堂八及馬會樓 vs 陳瑞球堂(1:3)
李兆基堂 vs 賽馬會敬賢堂(4:0)
舍堂十一 vs 胡應湘爵士伉儷堂(0:1)
賽馬會群智堂 vs 校友樂禮堂(1:3)
舍堂十 vs 舍堂八及馬會樓(3:1)

不論比賽結果如何,每支隊伍每位球員都奮力拼搏過,應該得到相同的尊重和讚揚,請大家一起為他們喝彩吧!

Persistence, Struggles and Passion / 堅持、拼搏與熱情

It was the 16th of October. The beautiful sunshine had predicted what a lovely day it would be for the Professor Edmond Ko Cup (PEK Cup) Inter-hall Athletic Competition 2016/17. 
 
It was easy to be affected by the excitement in the air. All seats in the spectator stand of Joint Sports Centre were occupied. The loud and passionate cheering from different halls rang across the venue. Everyone knew that the “competition” had already started by the first yell. Yet each hall still managed to respect its rivals without interruption. Young athletes warmed up by the tracks and those who had just finished a race sat around and rested.  The endless sweat and heavy breath couldn’t hide the passion on their faces.
 
The major events in the afternoon were the Inter-hall 4 x 100m relay, 4 x 400m relay, and 1,500m track. As soon as the pistol went off, our hall representatives rushed along their lanes like a dozen of shooting arrows. Spectators fixed their eyes on the running figures and cheered for them ceaselessly. The cheering teams yelled out their hall slogans ever so loudly as the athletes approached the finishing line. “Look! That person is so fast! He was 70 metres behind and now he is catching up!” Their yells seemed to have infused energy into the athletes. All 4 x 100m relays finished within 2 minutes. It was not only a demonstration of amazing speed, but also about the unspoken coordination and strategies among teammates.

I interviewed some athletes off track to learn about their inspiring stories.
 
HUI Ho Yin, a Year 3 Business Analysis resident from Alumni Civility Hall, was taking a rest with a bandage on his left foot. “I got injured when I did Thai boxing the other day.” He told me.
“Are you still going to participate in the relay? “ I asked as he massaged his foot in pain.
“Of course, I’ve just finished the 4 x 100 and I will be participating in the 4 x 400 later. I was running faster than our back-up runners so I don’t want to get cold feet. My feet hurt after the 4 x 100 so I am taking a rest now. This may be the last time I participate in hall relays. I truly hope I can be known by more people!”
Hall 10’s women’s team for 4 x 100m Relay: Jemmima Richard GONSALVES, Maria KRUTOVA, Anatasia STULBA and CHEN Yiran. / 舍堂十4 x 100米接力跑的女子隊隊員Jemmima Richard GONSALVES、Maria KRUTOVA、Anatasia STULBA 及陳怡然。
 The women’s team of Hall 10 in the 4 x 100 relay was consisted of three foreign girls and one Chinese. They were Maria KRUTOVA (Year 3, Information Systems) and Anatasia STULBA (Year 3, New Media) from Russia, Jemmima Richard GONSALVES (Year 1, Mechanical & Biomedical Engineering) from India and CHEN Yiran (Year 2, Energy Science & Engineering) from China. They gave a high-five to one another after the relay as a pat on the back. “Of course we were nervous. We were representing our halls!” The girls said, “What motivated us were the support from our teammates and the cheering from our hallmates.”
 
LEUNG Man Wan (Year 3, Chinese) from Sir Gordon and Lady Ivy Wu Hall participated in the 1500m event. When asked whether she felt nervous, she said, “Sure I was because I was afraid to be the last one, but the result was not too bad. I ranked 4th in the group. I’ve just recovered from a fever so I worried about falling and fainting. I just kept telling myself to keep running because I didn’t want to walk to the finish line. That would be too pathetic. If I couldn’t be the fastest one, at least I could try my best.”
 
WONG Ka Man (Year 3, Information Systems), who is also from Sir Gordon and Lady Ivy Wu Hall, took part in the 4 x 100m. She wiped off her sweat with a towel, still displaying high energy after the relay, “ The result was a little bit disappointing because I didn’t play as well as I expected. It was normal to feel nervous when we stepped onto the track. I tried to relax and focus on running. I think the most important thing for athletes is the spirit: we never quit halfway even though we may end as the last person crossing the finish line.”
 
The women’s team from Chan Sui Kau Hall won the championship of the 4 x 100m relay. So how did the champion team feel? Natalie TSE (Year 1, Applied Social Science), FUNG Tsz Wing (Year 2, Chinese & History), YEUNG King Ting (Year 1, Applied Social Science) and CHUA Yan Ching (Year 2, Social work) all spoke at once, “Actually we were not so nervous as we were there for each other. As we ran, the only thing in our minds was the constant reminder of not tripping over! Our team members are excellent! Two of us are good at cross-country and rugby. One of us actually tripped accidentally during practice and injured her knees terribly.” “Well, it still hurt when I ran, but I didn’t want to slow down the team speed. That’s the kind of pain I can tolerate!” The four girls collapsed into laughter, enjoying the satisfaction and and happiness they gained from the win. 
 
I must say our athletes are most respected for their pursue for excellence, spirit and efforts, as resonated by our Vice-president (Student Affairs), Prof. Horace IP, “I felt the power of youth and the spirit of struggle from these young athletes. They have taken more efforts than others to strike a balance between studying and training. They have to manage their time well and develop a team spirit. The mental well-being is highly important. I think any experiences as athletes are greatly beneficial to self-development.” And this is exactly the deep meaning underlying the Athlete Meet.

10月16日,天朗氣清,陽光明媚,看天氣就知道今天是個好日子,對啦,大家準備已久期待已久的高彥鳴教授盃舍際接力跑比賽開幕啦!快隨小編去現場看看吧!

剛踏進聯校運動中心,馬上就被這種熱烈又緊張的氣氛感染。二樓的觀眾席早已被佔滿,各個舍堂氣勢十足地喊著口號,為運動員們加油打氣,大家互相暗暗較著勁兒,但還是默契地此起彼伏,對嘛,尊重對手要從啦啦隊做起。跑道上有運動員在練習和熱身,跑道旁的休息室周圍三三兩兩坐著剛比完賽在休息的運動員們,他們雖然跑的滿頭大汗,但神色之間看不出疲倦,反而神采奕奕。

下午的主要項目是舍際4 x 100米、隊伍4 x 400米接力賽與1,500米等田徑賽。發令槍一響,仿佛觸動了某根弦,運動員們像利箭一般飛出去, 觀眾們緊緊盯著場上那幾抹小小的卻堅定的身影,心被他們牽引著,不停為他們讚歎:「你看,那個人好快,剛才落下70米轉眼就要趕上了!」在接近終點時,啦啦隊更是為運動員們搖旗吶喊,他們的加油聲真的為運動員注入了能量,兩分鐘左右的時間便完成一組的4 x 100米的比賽。接力賽不僅考驗速度,更考驗彼此的默契和戰略部署,如何交接,哪位運動員負責哪一棒等等。

Run, run, run! / 跑跑跑!
Runner. / 跑手。

在場下,小編有幸採訪到一些運動員,聽著他們的故事,每個人都讓小編感動又振奮。

小編遇見校友樂禮堂許浩賢同學(商業分析系三年級)的時候,他左腳上纏著紗布,正在養傷。「這個啊,是前幾天打泰拳的時候傷了神經。」

「那你還要上場嗎?(看著很痛)」

「當然要啊,我剛跑完4 x 100,一會還有4 x 400要跑,因為在選拔的時候我的成績比後補選手要好,所以想堅持一下,不想臨陣退縮吧。跑完4 x 100腳痛的厲害,所以休息一下。這也許是我最後一次代表Hall參加比賽呢,我想讓大家認識我!」

舍堂十女子4 x 100米接力隊伍是三個外國女孩和一個本地女孩的組合,由來自俄羅斯的Maria KRUTOVA(資訊系統系三年級)及Anatasia STULBA(新媒體系三年級)、印度的Jemmima Richard GONSALVES(機械及生物醫學工程系一年級)和中國的陳怡然(能源科學及工程系二年級)組成。她們的感情很好,跑完下場之後擊掌合照,互相鼓勵:「會緊張的,畢竟代表的不是自己,而是整個舍堂,不過在場上我們不是一個人,還有隊友並肩作戰,拉拉隊也給了我們很大勇氣。訓練的時候都在晚上,今天太熱了,發揮不太好。」

胡應湘爵士伉儷堂運動員梁文韻(中文系三年級)參加的是女子1500米賽跑。被問到上場時是否緊張時,她回答:「緊張呀,怕跑最後一名,不過結果還好啦,我這一組第四名。前一段日子生病,現在剛剛好,所以怕自己暈倒,就跟自己說,要堅持著跑到最後,停下來走到終點太難看了。如果速度不是最快的,那麼就拼耐力吧。」

同樣來自應湘堂的王嘉敏(資訊系統系三年級)參加的則是女子4 x 100米接力。她用毛巾擦著汗,剛剛結束比賽但是仍舊活力十足:「結果有些失望啦,發揮的沒有預期好。上場有點緊張的,所以跑步的時候放空自己,什麼也不去想,分神只會限制實力的。運動員最重要的就是一種精神吧,哪怕最後一名,也絕對不可以中途放棄。」

Brian CHAU, Natalie TSE, Will HAI, and Natalie CHAN CHOW from Chan Sui Kau Hall showed care to their fellow athletes and cheering members by grabbing a boxful of ice-creams and goodies after the races. / 陳瑞球堂的周厚仁、謝凱蕎、奚霆威和周詠殷發揮大愛,在賽後跑到鄰近的便利店裡搜購了一大箱雪糕雪條和零食,以慰勞在烈日下努力發揮的跑手們和啦啦隊。

作為高彥鳴教授盃今年第一炮賽事,陳瑞球堂的女子4 x 100米隊伍勇奪冠軍。作為冠軍隊伍是怎樣的體驗呢?小妮子謝凱蕎(犯罪學系三年級)、馮子穎 (中文及歷史系二年級)、楊景婷(應用社會科學系一年級)和蔡仁靖(社會工作系二年級)七嘴八舌地說:「不是很緊張呀,因為隊友們都在,比賽時候想的只是不要跌倒!我們的隊員很優秀的,其中兩位分別擅長越野跑和橄欖球。因為其中其中一位隊員在訓練時不小心摔倒,膝蓋現在還是觸目驚心的傷口。」「嗯,其實跑的時候有些痛,可是不能連累隊友們呀,所以忍忍就好了。」四個女孩子笑成一團,她們樂觀陽光,也有得了冠軍的喜悅和滿足。

採訪下來,小編深深覺得,運動員們最了不起的是,他們的追求,他們的精神,他們的付出和辛苦。採訪中,副校長(學生事務)葉豪盛教授對運動員們更是讚不絕口:「看著這群年輕人啊,我感受到了青春,能量和拼搏,參與支持的學生十分的熱烈。運動員們是很不容易的,他們要兼顧讀書和訓練,時間管理很重要,他們需要有團隊精神,需要良好的心理素質去參與競爭,反過來說,人生中有一段運動員的經歷對這些品格的養成和以後的發展也是很有好處的。」我想,這也是運動會更深層次的意義所在吧。

最後,跟大家通報一下最關心的舍際比賽的名次:

  • 4 x 100米【男子組】:冠軍賽馬會群萃堂(Hall 7),亞軍胡應湘爵士伉儷堂(Hall 9),季軍舍堂十一(Hall 11),殿軍賽馬會敬賢堂(Hall 1)。

  • 陸運會最佳參與獎:冠軍舍堂十一(Hall 11),亞軍李兆基堂(Hall 6),季軍校友樂禮堂(Hall 3)。

恭喜恭喜!
