田徑運動員謝彩玉
 

彩玉在兩歲時曾患感冒發燒,家人初不以為意,但自此後發覺彩玉走路較同齡的小朋友慢,初時以為是她身體虛弱所致,但情況每況愈下,身體開始乏力,於是家人將她送入醫院。但留院十多天,經過多次的檢查卻找不到原因。出院後,彩玉雖然經過不同的治療,但情況沒有太大的進展,至入學後的一次智能測驗,始得悉彩玉小腦受損,影響手腳活動能力,同時智力也受到影響,需要入讀特殊學校。

入學後多姿多采的校園生活令彩玉眼界大開,除了學習到不同的生活技能外,亦有機會參與不同的興趣活動及運動:唱歌、跳舞、游泳、跑步…而最後她更經學校選拔進入了本會的田徑隊。「或許因為她知道自己步履不穩,很羡慕其他小朋友可以靈活行走,所以特別喜歡跑步吧!」媽媽說。

彩玉自開始田徑運動後,關節能力得到改善,走路較以前更「穩陣」;以往沉默寡言的她,亦變得開朗和活潑起來。加入田徑隊短短幾年,彩玉已擁有多次的海外賽事經驗,並先後到韓國和澳門參賽;雖然今次是第一次出戰世界賽,但她仍充滿信心,期望能爭取佳績。

還記得彩玉在接受訓練的初期,面對眼前的跨欄是感到恐懼的,但在教練和媽媽的鼓勵下,她成功地跨出第一步;衝破障礙,除了要克服自己的心理關口,還需要身邊人的支持。

 
 

Choi Yuk had a fever when she was two years old. At first, the family did not pay much attention to her after recovery but then discovered she walked slower than other children. They thought it was because of her physical weakness. Yet, her condition got worse and was then admitted to the hospital. After staying in the hospital for over a week, causes to Hoi Yuk’s condition were still unknown. She had received different therapies after being discharged from the hospital but no progress was resulted. No sooner an intelligence quotient test was taken then the family found that Choi Yuk’s cerebellum was damaged by that fever. This not only affected her mobility coordination, but also her intelligence. Thus, she had to go to special school.

Choi Yuk started her colorful life in the special school. Apart from living skills, she also had the chance to join various activities and sports, such as singing, dancing, swimming and running. Finally, Choi Yuk even became our athletic team member through school selection. “Maybe she knows she walks unstably and envies the others can walk swiftly so she is particularly fond of running!”said Mrs. TSE.

Since entering the athletic team, Choi Yuk’s joint was improved and so was her walking posture. Changes can also be found in her character like she had changed from quiet into a cheerful and outgoing girl. Being part of the team for a few years, Choi Yuk is experienced in competing overseas and had been to Korea and Macau for competitions respectively. Although this is the first time for her to go to the World Games, she is still full of confidence and will strive for the best results.

Choi Yuk was afraid of overcoming the hurdle in front of her when receiving training at the initial stage. However, with the encouragement from coach and Mrs. TSE, she set out her first step successfully. This fully illustrates that apart from overcoming one’s psychological barrier, the support from family and friends also serves as an important factor to overcome obstacles ahead.
