Timothy Fok Tsun-ting (born 14 February 1946 in Hong Kong), GBS, JP, the eldest son of Henry Fok, is a Member of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong, representing the Sports, Performing Arts, Culture and Publication functional constituency. While he is not affiliated with any political party, he is viewed as agreeing with the conservative "pro-China" wing of LegCo, and is a Member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Biography[edit]

Education[edit]

Fok was educated at Millfield, England, and the University of Southern California.

Affiliations and politics[edit]

Fok is a member of the International Olympic Committee; President of the Sports Federation and Olympic Committee of Hong Kong; Vice-President of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA); a Member of the 2008 Olympics Coordination Commission; President of the Hong Kong Sports Writer Association; Vice President of the Organising Committee of the 2008 Olympics and Paralympics Equestrian Events (which he is credited with bringing to Hong Kong); Vice President of the Hong Kong East Asian Games Organising Committee; and President of the Hong Kong Football Association.

Fok represents the Sports, Performing Arts, Culture and Publication functional constituency in the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. He is not affiliated with any political party, but is aligned with the conservative "pro-China" wing of LegCo, and is also a Member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

In 2010, his performance as lawmaker was criticised. Catholic Monitors rated three legislators, one of which was Fok, as less than satisfactory for failing to raise motions or amendments throughout the entire Legco year.[1]

Family[edit]

He was married to former Miss Hong Kong Loletta Chu. The couple, who have three sons, announced their divorce in September 2006,[citation needed] more than five years after their marriage was reported to be 'crumbling'.[2]

His two sons, Eric and Kenneth, have attracted media attention due to their relationships with Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi and Olympic diving gold-medalist Guo Jingjing, respectively.[3]
