Sonic 4th Anniversary party
The party was successfully held at PCCW Recreational Club on 16 December 2007. We have almost 70 members and friends showed up! Our head coach Kenneth Yip did an amazing job to host the party and bring up the atmosphere. The long lucky draw seemed like an never-ending game! Hope everyone enjoy the party and have a wonderful evening. Check out our photo album for the happening!
Ivan Yeung was crowned as "The most outstanding Sonician award" in 2007 season. He is a very promising triathelete in Sonic and he is the only one in Sonic finished the entire Duathlon, Aquathon and Triathlon race series locally while some were podium finished. He brought valuable club point to the club. His performance is unbeatable and deserve a credit. "The hints is very simple, just strict with the club's training." a 28 years-old said and he is now preparing for his first 70.3 Ironman China in April.
Sonic is now 4 years old, let's keep it moving!
