Published in the South China Morning Post on race day (Sunday February 5, 2012).
Mok Kim-wing, 47, ran the Hong Kong half-marathon on February 5.
He is part of the “fearless dragons” team, which pairs blind and deaf runners in an unlikely duo.
Kim became completely blind when he was 13.
For the past year, Eric Yeung Yuk-wing, a deaf horse carer for the Hong Kong Jockey Club, has been his guide on several races.
Ten pairs from the "fearless dragons" will line up on the starting line of the 21 km- race.
The “fearless dragons” already plan to participate in the Kyoto full marathon in March and the Beijing marathon in October.
