(8 votes, average 5.00 out of 5)

Hiu Ying Angel Wong, Hong Kong's top gymnast, is looking forward to spending the holidays with family after a successful year, which included winning two World Cup medals.

IG Online continues its yearly holiday series, bringing you the scoop on what the world's best gymnasts will be up to at the end of 2010!

After a rewarding year during which she earned two World Cup medals, Hong Kong's Hiu Ying "Angel" Wong told IG she looks forward to sharing her good fortune as always with loved ones this holiday season.

"I think Christmas is a lot about 'giving,'" said Wong, who won bronze medals on vault at the World Cup of Doha (Qatar) in March and the World Cup of Ghent (Belgium) in September. "I enjoy the whole process of Christmas shopping and wrapping the presents, but most of all I love to see people's faces when they receive my gifts. To see them happy makes it all worthwhile."

Wong, who was born in Hong Kong but lived in Australia from age 1 to 10, said she plans to enjoy the holidays with close friends.

"We don't really have any family traditions for Christmas," said Wong, who finished 11th all-around and sixth on vault at last month's Asian Games in Guangzhou. "But I remember we always put up and decorated a Christmas tree back when we were still in Australia. However, there just isn't enough space in Hong Kong! This Christmas I'll probably celebrate with friends, since the rest of my family will be in Shanghai and Australia. "

Wong said the holidays in Hong Kong encourage an exciting combination of lights, people and energy.

"It really is spectacular during Christmas and New Year's Eve in Hong Kong," she told IG. "At night it's amazing, with all the Christmas light displays. It gets really crowded, but I guess the more, the merrier at Christmas!"
