Fung Jin Jie, from Sec 2C made his debut performance for VS today. He participated in the C-Boys Chang Quan 1st International Routine and Cudgel 1st International Routine. After a stunning Chang Quan routine, Jinjie eclipsed the competition with a score of 8.56 with the nearest closest score bieng only a 8.38. He would have gotten a 8.66 but harsh judging penalized him a 0.1 for a missing transition movement.
In the end, he had to settle for Silver as a later competitor score 8.60. It was a near miss for Jin Jie as he would have definitely cliched the Gold if not for that deduction.

But in the words of Jin Jie's father "It's not important whether you win or lose; it's knowing what you did wrong and how to improve that matters and make a strong comeback."

And what a comeback he gave! In the later Cudgel event, Jin Jie confidently swept Gold with a 8.26, with the closest being 7.91. Granted that there were only 5 competitors in total for the Cudgel event but each individual out there was giving their best and there was no room for complacency even in a event with less participants.
