Gong Yani started her career as a synchronised swimmer when she was six years old. Originally from Wenzhou, in Zhejiang, her father believed she would have the chance of a better life if she joined the team. Her life since then has been through many ups and downs as she has struggled to progress to the senior team and have a shot at competing in the National championships. Her ultimate goal is to join the Chinese Olympic team. Coming back from a career threatening injury Yani is now captain of the Hunan Provincial team and working hard towards her goal.

In the second Drone and Phone special episode Rory Mackay from www.wildhongkong.com takes us on an adventure across Hong Kong’s biggest island.
This week Drone and Phone takes a diversion back to biking the beautiful Lamma Island in southern Hong Kong. Shooting the original episode, where David Ogg takes us through biking safety, was cut short by rain so here we return with him to finish the job.
Please note David is an experienced mountain biker and riding at speed down these trails can be dangerous for both the rider and walkers. In the making of this video we sent someone in advance to check the paths were clear of walkers which we would also recommend for anyone seeking the trill of speed on these paths.
