Hong Kong table tennis star Wong Chun-ting on Monday settled for the bronze medal in the men's singles event at the 19th Asian Games.
He was defeated 4-2 by Wang Chuqin of China in the semi-finals.
Wong lost the first two games to his opponent, but came back to win game three with a score of 15-13.
Wang then won the fourth game 11-5 to take a commanding 3-1 lead.
But the Hong Kong player did not go down without a fight, taking the fifth game 11-5 to narrow the deficit.
It was a see-saw battle in the sixth game, with Wang prevailing 11-9 for a berth in the final.
There is no bronze medal match, so Wong will share the podium with South Korea's Jang Woojin, who lost to Fan Zhendong of China in the other semi-final.
Wong told HOY TV that there is still room for him to improve.
"I am very happy but I think my performance could have been better especially in the beginning. I am more satisfied with my playing in the middle to end. I don't think I handled crucial plays too well. I wasn't steady enough," he said.
This is Hong Kong's only table tennis medal at this year's Asian Games.
