In-person Event (By invitation only) / Online webinar

Organizer: UChicago Yuen Campus in Hong Kong


Vivian Kong is a two-time Olympian, and she firmly believes in promoting the Olympic values and creating social impact through sport and “unity in diversity”. After competing in the 2016 Rio Olympics, she was further inspired by the power of sport to contribute to humanity and peace.

Vivian is grateful for the opportunity to represent Hong Kong in her athletic endeavors, but she is also aware of her duty to utilize sports as a platform to have a more impactful voice in society. Now, she hopes to use her public profile to raise awareness of social issues and continue to support the charities she is most passionate about.

Join one of Hong Kong’s rising stars and a symbol of Hong Kong’s future in sport and society on our upcoming Trailblazer Forum, Friday, December 2, 2022 at 4:00pm.
