Career

Despite having made her international debut at the 2004 Pacific Alliance Championships, Wong's success came mostly from winning silver and bronze medals on vault at World Cup meets. She also won silver on vault at the 2008 Asian Championships in Doha and the 2012 Pacific Rim Championships. She did compete at World Championships in 2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011, but did not qualify for the all-around or event finals. In 2011, she won bronze on vault at the Universiade in Shenzhen, China. She managed to qualify as an individual gymnast for Hong Kong at the London Olympic Test Event in January 2012, but did not make the all-around or event finals at the Olympics.

She continued to compete after the Olympics, placing fourth on vault at the Cottbus World Cup. She competed at the World Championships in Antwerp, Belgium, but missed the all-around and event finals. A week later, she competed at the East Asian Games in Tianjin, China, where she placed sixth on vault. That December, she placed fourth on vault at the Toyota International.

In 2014, she placed seventh on vault at the Cottbus World Cup in March. Later that month, she won bronze on vault at the Doha World Cup. She competed at the Asian Games in late September, placing seventh on vault. In October, she competed at the World Championships in Nanning, China, but did not make the all-around or event finals.
