Malaysian Lee Hung Fong is representing her country at contract bridge, which is making its Asian Games debut in Jakarta thanks to Indonesian organisers who feel their country has a strong tradition in the card game and are likely to be among the favourites.

Lee teaches bridge classes at the Royal Lake Club in Kuala Lumpur, Royal Selangor Club and Royal Selangor Golf Club and takes pride in the fact that she produces future bridge players.

“I am very, very happy to be there because I am the oldest member of the team and I hope I can get through with my teammates and hope we all enjoy the Games and have a good time,” Lee was quoted as saying by local media.
