Jacqueline Lai's Equestrian Showjumping campaign has successfully raised an impressive HK$482,100 (US$62,200), the highest to date on FringeBacker. Breaking all of FringeBacker’s fundraising records and setting the world’s crowdfunding record for a sportsman, Lai’s campaign has ended on 7 June, becoming probably the world's largest by an international athlete. With her campaign successfully funded, Jacqueline will be focusing on the outdoor season and readying herself for competitions, including the 12th National Games in September 2013.
