How’s your preparation leading up to Singapore Open?

Preparation is good so far. Have increased the number of training sessions.

What is your expectation in terms of results at Singapore Open?

I am expecting to break my personal best for both my events.

Who do you look up to (eg idol, mentor) for inspiration?

Nigel Amos is my idol. It is because he earned a silver medal in London Olympics when he was just 18. He was one of the youngest competitor there. It shows that age doesn’t determine anything. That’s an inspiration, it teaches me not to be afraid to compete with those elder than me. To believe in myself.

How did you get started in athletics?

While I followed my dad for some training sessions, I got interested when I was training alongside. So I decided to take part in competitions.
