Michelle Sng will be representing Singapore in the Women High Jump Open at the 76th Singapore Open Track & Field Championships 2014. Here’s is her profile awareness of our selected National Athletes for the competition.
Age: 27 years old
Coach: Chan See Huey
PB: High jump – 1.80m
How’s your preparation leading up to Singapore Open?
It’s been good. I’ve only just started training again this year, after stopping for almost 3 years so I’m still trying to get back into the groove of things.
What is your expectation in terms of results at Singapore Open?
I’m hoping to do a season best for Singapore Open.
Who do you look up to (eg idol, mentor) for inspiration?
I’ve always been a fan of Kajsa Bergqvist because she’s an amazing jumper (She’s only 1.75m and jumped 2.08m). I’ve also been following Blanka Vlasic’s comeback very closely and she’s been a real inspirational figure.
How did you get started in athletics?
In secondary 1, I represented my class in High Jump for sports day because nobody else wanted to participate in it. I realised that I wasn’t too bad at it and the school got me to take part in National Schools.
