Hong Kong’s first golfing Olympian, amateur Tiffany Chan Tsz-ching, says performing in Rio has boosted her confidence in her abilities and that she would like nothing more than to qualify for the Tokyo Games in four years’ time.

Chan saved her best for last in the final round of the women’s golf competition in Rio to finish in 37th place in the standings. The 22-year-old, a product of the Hong Kong Golf Association’s junior development programme and one of only three amateurs in the elite field, offset four bogeys with six birdies and signed for a four round total of 288 (four-over-par).
