After the Diamond Sedan Competition, renown wheelchair marathon-racer Ajmal Samuel and marathon-runner Chong Hiu-yeung were invited to participate in a 200-meter friendly match. The public was able to witness a fun and inclusive running race.

The Diamond Sedan Competition could not have been possible without the help of over 60 volunteers. Among them, 10 have spent the past half a year to plan, promote, organize and execute the Competition. All volunteers held the view that the Competition can extend the mission and spirit of Diamond Cab barrier-free taxi transportation and to let wheelchair users live a sparkling life.

Last but by no means least, the Organizer would like to express sincere gratitude to all sponsors, partners, supporting organization, volunteers and popeyes for their active participation. The Competition has been an unforgettable experience for wheelchair users and allowed many audience to feel our passion in creating a more inclusive society. See you next year!




Diamond Cab barrier-free taxi service has successfully finished over 22,500 wheelchair user orders in the past year. In 2012, we will further promote the slogan “Brilliant Life with Diamond Cab” by organizing innovative touring events for wheelchair users.

Sedan Chair is the popular transportation means in 50s-70s in Hong Kong but it was replaced by vehicles which carry passengers with engines instead of manual power.


"Diamond Sedan" revitalizes the old Sedan Chair with trendy and cool design labeled as "One Person Taxi for Wheelchair User" which can also carry wheelchair users by manual power with safety in high standard. Diamond Sedan is dedicated to serve the wheelchair users in areas not accessible for wheelchairs and improve their social life in Hong Kong.

Diamond Sedan

Diamond Sedan Competition is the ever first innovative event to promote ultimate barrier-free experience with Diamond Cab. By organizing this competition with great fun, the social need of wheelchair users and barrier-free culture will further be fertilized to make significant and positive impact for rapidly ageing Hong Kong.
