It’s the last time for form six relay runner and DGS student Rebecki Chan Yee-ki to compete in the Inter-School competitions, and she said it was very touching to hear her fellow students' cheers. She keeps reminding herself to try her best to leave no regrets. 

Ken Chan of DBS was also happy to win in his final year. He said the competition is tough this year with outstanding runners from rivalry school La Salle College, but the result is better than he expected and he's thrilled.
