14 August, 2008 – The Hong Kong men’s table tennis team lost 3-0 to Japan this afternoon in their final group D game and it means they can no longer win a gold or a silver medal in Beijing.
The opening two singles matches were lost 3-1, while match 3, the doubles, ended in a 3-2 victory for the Japanese. Hong Kong’s team of Ko Lai-chak (高禮澤) and Li Ching (李靜) squandered 6 match points in that contest.
They won a silver medal at the 2004 Summer Olympics.
