Wong Gets Silver Medal With Broken Bones

Hong Kong cyclist Wong Wan-yiu was wedged in an epic pile up during the women's 20 kilometer cycling points race at the Asian Games.

The cyclist was in second place when she touched the wheel of leader Liu Xin and triggered the event. Wong suffered a broken rib and a dislocated arm after being run over by other contestants.

Three of the athletes could not carry on racing, but Wong hopped on a replacement bicycle and finished the remaining 37 laps despite her pain. The heroine got a silver medal.

Wong was determined to finish the race as this was her last chance to gain enough points to succeed for the London Olympics. She said to Apple Daily that "you have to be willing to sacrifice in order to achieve anything; it's all give and take."
