The 23-year-old was very effective in the 2018 Asian Games. In the opener, he got the win over host Indonesia. Relieving Chi-Kam Kenneth Chiu with two on, two outs and a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the 5th, he got Ranjani to ground out. In the 6th, he hit Adi Susanto, who advanced on a passed ball and a grounder by Hakeem Rahniady Putra Ady. Andospa Aldo Saputra hit a sacrifice fly but Leung recovered to fan Diva Reza Fabil. Hong Kong got both runs back in the top of the 7th, then Lai-Him Lam took over; the lead held to give Leung the victory. In his next outing, he again took over for Chiu, this time with a 4-4 tie, one on and two out in the top of the 8th against Thailand. He retired Alexander Clark on a grounder. In the 9th, he struck out the side (Phoomwut Wutthikorn, Naruephol Muangkasem and Joseph Daru), hitting the second batter of the inning (Suratit Faengsup). When Hong Kong scored in the bottom of the 9th, he improved to 2-0. Finally, he wrapped up a loss to Pakistan, relieving Lam with one out, the bases loaded and a 11-2 deficit and giving up a single to Umair Imdad Bhatti that turned it into a mercy rule loss. He got both of Hong Kong's wins in the 2018 Asian Games and tied Lam and Gordon Chun-Ming Chau for the team lead in appearances, while winding up with a 0.00 ERA. He tied Muhammad Usman and Yong-chan Lee for the tourney lead in wins. [8]
