The Hong Kong men fencing team at the Olympic Games in Tokyo does not only consist of newly crowned gold medallist Cheung Ka Long, but also Lawrence Ng Lok Wang who happens to be a former child actor.

The 21-year-old – who is making his Olympics debut – started acting in TVB drama since he was seven years old.

He is usually cast as the younger version of the main character in shows like Last One Standing (2008) and Brother’s Keeper (2015).

After appearing in more than 30 TVB dramas, Ng stopped acting after his role in the 2015 TV series Raising The Bar.

Around this time, Ng had decided to concentrate fully on fencing, a sport he first took up when he was seven years old.

In an interview with a Hong Kong newspaper back in 2015, when Ng was competing at an Inter-School Fencing Competition, he shared that he trains for four hours, five times a week to hone his skill.

He even credited his acting experience for boosting his confidence in fencing competitions.

Ng, who was then 16, was quoted: “I had a role in a TVB drama called Brother's Keeper a few years ago. I was stressed out because everyone was looking at me.

“I told myself to stay calm and act well. I believe acting made me braver and tougher in fencing competitions."

Ng will enter the Olympics ring on Aug 1 in the men’s foil team competition with gold medallist Cheung.
