Compilation of Jackson’s pre-debut interviews as a fencing athlete
Jackson: My name is Jackson. I am a fencing athlete. I will participate in Sabre fencing in the Youth Olympic Games. I am currently in the 11th grade of American International School.
Jackson: I started practicing fencing when I was 10. I first represented Hong Kong in 2008 at Italy’s World Youth Championships.
Jackson: I competed this April in Asia’s World Youth Championships. I placed first in Asia. That’s why I’m able to go to the Youth Olympic Games. I have a lot of confidence I will be able to enter the top 8. But my main goal is to enter the top 4 and receive a medal.
Jackson: The most memorable competition was this year’s World Youth Championships. Knowing that I achieved my goal and I’m able to go to the Youth Olympic Games, and that I was the first from Hong Kong’s southern district to enter the top 10 in the Youth Championships.
Jackson: My hobbies are playing basketball, swimming, and dancing. My favourite movie is ‘The Hangover’.
Jackson: Hi everyone. I am sabre fencer Jackson Wang. 2010 Singapore Youth Olympics Games exclusively on Young Post, yp.scmp.com.

Jackson: Why’s it like this?
Jackson: It looks like it’s good quality. Oh my god. It’s really okay. It’s really okay. Where’s Youth Olympics?
