Fung lost the use of his legs as a child after contracting a virus which damaged his spinal cord (Actue Transverse Myelitis in 1994 with paraplegia).[4][5] At age 15, he began practicing wheelchair fencing at a national training facility in Hong Kong (Hong Kong Sports Institute). After the 2004 Paralympic Games he relearn to walk with lower limbs sensation deficiency and retired from fencing.[2]

In the months leading up to the 2008 Summer Paralympics in Beijing, Fung coached Japanese wheelchair fencer Toyoaki Hisakawa in preparation for the games.[2][6]

In recent years, he started participating in wheelchair marathon. He completed his first full marathon in Osaka, Japan in 2011.[7] Then in 2012, he completed the Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon and was the first local wheelchair racer to complete the entire course.[8] In 2013, he won the wheelchair half-marathon for the same event.[9] He hopes that the increasing profile of wheelchair events locally can provide more opportunities and choices to the athletes with disabilities in Hong Kong.[10]

EducationEdit

Fung Ying-ki studied at Kiangsu-Chekiang College (Shatin) during his early years and he received a B.A. with honors in Physical Education and Recreation Management from Hong Kong Baptist University (香港浸會大學) and a MEd in Sports Biomechanics from National Taiwan Normal University (國立臺灣師範大學). He is also a graduate of the first cohort of Master in Physiotherapy degree (MPT) in Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 2013. He is a current PhD candidate at Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Faculty of Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong (香港中文大學).

In 2010 summer Fung Ying Ki received a Postgraduate Travel Award from International Society on Biomechanics in Sports, and he is commission member of Hong Kong Association of Sports Medicine and Sports Science from 2010–2012. Meanwhile, he is one of the classification committee member of International Paralympic Committee (IPC) from 2010–2014.
