Q) What are your hopes, dream and target this SEA Games?

I will do my best and hope to put up a good performance at the games.

Q) How’s your preparation for the SEA Games?

It is getting on well after my recovery from a foot injury.

Q) What are some of the biggest challenges in your sports career so far leading to SEA Games and your athletics career?

For the past few years, it has been getting support for my event and being alone at competition most of the time. Also, managing the cat callings and negative responses from the general public about racewalkers.

Q) How did you specialise in your particular event? Why this event, what’s the attraction?

I was introduced to the walk by my PE teacher in secondary school and i continued after that. Racewalking is not just a sport to me; it has taught me many lessons about life.

Q) Who is your coach, tell us more about him/her. Also a mention of your previous coaches.

1. Ms Jayamani – Fitness coach. Ms Jaya has been coaching me since i started racewalking. She was a multiple Sea Games Gold Medallist and currently holding the national record for the 1500m and 3000m run.

2. Mr Tanaball – Technique coach, He used to represent Singapore at SEA Games.

3. Mr Hansen Bay – Mental Skills coach

4. Mr Akira – He was one of my secondary school’s coaches together with Ms Jaya.

5. Mr Lim Tiang Quee – He was my polytechnic’s coach, a decorated athlete and coach.

Along the way, i also receive guidance from other coaches (such as Mr Joe Goh, Mr MKS Rajan and Mr Subra) in the fraternity. Not forgetting the support from SSI.

Q) Do you take care of your nutrition and diet? Your opinion on supplements and food.

I don’t have a strict diet regime but I try to avoid deep fried food. Supplements are good to complement our daily diet as they help to provide nutrients where our daily food intake may not contain.

Q) Aside from athletics, what else interest you? You could say the other part of your life beyond athletics.

I enjoy sports in general and travelling.

Q) How do you fit in your training/competing with your family and studies/work?

Time management and constant communication with my family so that they get a better understanding of what I do.

Q) Share with the readers, some aspects of your training regime.

I train up to 10 times a week.

My first training session starts at 6am. By 9am, i will be in office. I will start my second training session after work.

Q) What are your long term athletics goals?

To break the national 50km Walk Record.

Q) What advice do you have for young aspiring athletes?

Be in this (sport) because you love it, not simply because you are good at it.

Athletes’ final push for medal glory

13 May 2015 – 39 of the 74 Singapore Track & Field SEA Games 2015 athletes headed to Taipei this morning to participate in the Taiwan Open, as part of their final preparations leading up to the 28th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in June 2015.

Led by SEA Games athletics team captain Kenneth Khoo, the Singapore contingent will take on athletes from 14 other countries, including 400m Olympic gold medalist LaShawn Merritt.

The competition will be held on 15 and 16 May 2015 in Taipei City.

400m sprinter Khoo is looking forward to the Taiwan Open where he will be seeking to fine tune his preparations and has targeted season best timings as he approaches his fifth SEA Games in June.

“This being the final competition before the SEA Games, I am hoping to achieve my season bests in both the individual 400m and the 4x400m relay with the rest of my teammates.

“I think we have all trained hard the last couple of months for the Games in June and we are confident and looking forward to putting on a good show in front of our fellow Singaporeans who we hope will come out and cheer us on.”

One other key member of the traveling contingent will be Assistant Team Manager Morales Menon, who has also been appointed for the same role when the SEA Games kicks off in less than a month’s time. With Singapore Athletics putting out the largest contingent in SEA Games history, Morales knows that he has a huge responsibility on his hands.

He said: “My job is to assist the Team Manager, Mr Lawrenz Sim, to ensure all the Singapore athletes are focused on their individual events while also ensuring that we fully comply to the administrative tasks before and after each event. Having 74 of Singapore’s top athletes under our care is a huge responsibility, but it is also a great opportunity to learn on the job and hopefully motivate them to a good medal tally.”

This will be the final competition for the Singapore athletes before they are set to do battle on home soil from 5 to 16 June 2015 at the newly minted National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub.
