Wheelchair fencing took root in Hong Kong in the early 1980s. Within a short span of 20 years, Hong Kong wheelchair athletes had worked themselves to world-class standards. In the Sydney 2000 Paralympics, the Hong Kong wheelchair-fencing team captured 4 gold, 2 silver, and 2 bronze medals. These were the best results ever achieved. In order to understand this phenomenon, perceptions of possible factors associated with this were explored. These factors include: Perceived Positive Outcomes, Organizational Support and Family Support.
