2008 Macau Galaxy Entertainment International Marathon

December 7, 2008

Galaxy Entertainment Group Marathon Team (GEG Marathon Team), led by Vice Chairman Mr. Francis Lui, achieved the best results since its formation. The glorious team won both the first and third positions in the Female Mini Marathon Category B and also swiped the Public and Private Entities Group Trophy for the fourth year running.

Galaxy Entertainment Group has also been committed to sport development in Macau. Aside from being the title sponsor for the Macau International Marathon for five consecutive years, it also brings together a large group of employees to take part in the Marathon. This year's team of over 200 persons included front-line staff from different departments and also senior management. Vice Chairman, Mr. Francis Lui, together with his son, completed the Mini Marathon. The presence of Mr. Lui greatly lifted the spirits of the GEG Marathon Team, encouraging the team to achieve best results ever.

Mr. Lui is delighted to have the opportunity to participate in sports together with his staff and to encourage communication between each other. “I am delighted to see the team spirit amongst everyone, and the GEG determination to succeed encouraging everyone to reach the end point” said Mr. Lui.

Group Chief Operating Officer, Mr. David Banks, who participated in the Half Marathon again this year, and Director of Human Resources and Administration, Ms. Eileen Lui, are proud of the team's excellent achievements this year. Ms. Lui further encourages all employees to continue participating actively in sports to build a balanced lifestyle.

GEG’s front-line staff stole the limelight in the Female Mini Marathon Category B by winning the first and third positions. The champion is Ms. Adhkari Shanti Devi, a security supervisor of GEG's Waldo Casino. She has always loved running in marathons but missed last year's marathon due to a leg injury then. Ms. Devi is exhilarated with her first position in this marathon, since her return from her injury. The second runner up is StarWorld Casino dealer, Ms. Lam Hang Lei, who's participating in a Marathon for the first time. This debutante is also part of the award-winning GEG Dragon Boat Team. Spurred by their achievements today, both Ms. Devi and Ms. Lam will continue optimally manage their time between work and sports.
