How’s your preparation leading up to Singapore Open?
It has been well but challenging from having to juggle work and sports.
What is your expectation in terms of results at Singapore Open?
To achieve a good time will be ideal. however, It will be more realistic to walk my best and enjoy the race as I prep towards next year’s Asian racewalking champs and SEA Games.
Who do you look up to (eg idol, mentor) for inspiration?
All athletes have their inspiring stories. So, everyone is motivating one another in a way. Personally, I draw strength from my personal dreams and targets.
How did you get started in athletics?
I was introduced to racewalking when I was in secondary school. at one of its annual sports day, I refused to run, so my teacher coerced me to participate in the walk race. From there, there was no turning back.
