11 June 2015 – Singapore’s new sprint queen Shanti Veronica Pereira ended the Lion City’s 42-year wait to win her first Southeast Asian (SEA) Games gold medal in the 200m on Wednesday at the new National Stadium.

Roared on by a vociferous crowd decked in red and white, the 18-year-old charged out of the blocks and turned on the afterburners in the last 100m to claim gold ahead of Filipino Kayla Richardson (23.72s) and Vietnamese sprinter Nguyen Thi Oanh (23.92s).

Her time of 23.60s rewrote the national record she set during the Heats in the morning (23.82s) and made her the first female sprinter to win the event since the legendary Glory Barnabas achieved that feat in 1973.

Speaking to the media after her race, the youngster could barely hide her excitement as she thanked everyone who has helped her on this amazing journey.

“This feels so amazing! I’m so happy,” she exclaimed. “I didn’t know I was going to win, but I did. I can’t describe how I feel right now. I wanted a medal definitely, my goal was a medal and I knew who I was racing against (Kayla).”

While she came out of the bend in front of the chasing pack, Shanti was not always sure if she could hold off her competition, but explained that she just started to “cheong” and it worked out well in the end.

She added: “It was just trying to catch whoever was in front of me, whether it was the Philippines, or whoever… I was a bit scared because the Malaysian girl seemed to be getting a little ahead of me a little bit, so I started to Cheongand it really worked!

“My game plan was just to have a good start and not go so fast on the first curve and to keep up with the person next to me and hopefully have more energy at the end.”

Having claimed the 100m bronze medal a day earlier, Shanti was quick to thank her coach for making some minor tweaks to her style.

“I knew that in the heats, I did slow down a little bit, so I was really hoping that I could do even better in the finals. Yes I have (been working on having a more explosive start), it’s the thing that my coach has tried to work on the most among other things.”

There was more good news for the host nation when Zhang Guirong continued her reign as the Southeast Asian queen of shot put with a throw of 14.60m. It was her six consecutive gold medal which means no other athlete has taken the title away from her for the past decade.

She finished ahead of Thailand’s Sawitri Thongchao (13.62m) and Areerat Intadis (13.31m). Singapore’s Hannah Lee finished a commendable fourth.

Over in the Women’s 400m Hurdles, Dipna Lim Prasad set a new personal best with a time of 59.24s to claim the silver, while Vietnam’s Nguyen Thi Huyen struck gold with a Games record (56.15s).

Wendy-Enn-DP

Name: Wendy Enn

Height: 1.60m

Weight: 53kg

Date of Birth: 5 March 1994 (21yrs)

Personal Best(s): 12.19s (Women 100m, 2013 Series 3)

Career Highlight(s): –

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

New personal best for individual event and hopefully a podium finish in the 4x100m with the team.

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

All is well. Tapering down for the games, all set and ready to race.

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

Finding and adapting to the new coach and injuries. My previous coach, Slava left the end of last year, December and that was the most devastating moment and definitely a wrong time because it was too close to SEA Games. It’s difficult to find a new coach where you can trust and willing to dedicate time to train me.

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

I came from a distance background to begin with. Specialising in 100m made me more appreciative of the event itself naturally because of the short span of attention, focus and of course the distance.

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

Fabian William – Ultra marathoner who used to do triathlon and extreme sport. A coach who is very stringent in technique and movement, together with his wife (also my physiotherapist), Jindee, corrected my movement mechanics to make me a better runner.

Viatcheslav – the coach who taught me that nothing is impossible. He set goals for me when I wanted to quit running in late 2010 and groomed me from nothing to somebody who participated in many major games. I’m thankful to have his as my coach and always believe in me.

Elangovan – the very first coach I have in Sports School who taught me that pain is temporary, glory is forever. Definitely need those mental push for middle distance.

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

Diet wise, #eatdirtylooksexy hahaha. I always believe everything you eat should be in moderation, so no restriction for me. Supplement wise, stay clean and professional.

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

I like reading classics (written by Oscar Wilde or Charles dickens), crime thrillers or if not helping out in animal shelters whenever I am free.

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

Time management is the key. I made sacrifices to get to where I am today but I am lucky to have good friends who are athletes and we can feel one another and not alone in this! I’m fortunate to have my coach as my boss (in FWCC) so I can train in between coaching breaks :) I always have quality dinner time allocated to the family of mine after a long day of coaching!

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

Six times a week, mostly two speed sessions, one power session, one speed endurance session, one relay training session and the rest strength and conditioning work.

Q) What are your long term athletics goals?

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

When you feel like quitting, take a step back and see how far you’ve come and nothing comes easy. Get through it and you’ll grow stronger

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

There have been multiple injuries which hindered my progress but they are much better now.

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

Recovering of throwing form post army and also finding breakthroughs in my sporting career. Disruptions during the examination period has also posed problems to my development progress.

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

I do not have the size for the other throwing events so I settled for javelin throwing and the part that lures me back into throwing was the feeling of a well-connected throw.

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

I am currently training under Mr Ng Bock Huat, the current National Record holder for the event. He has many years of experience in this field and has worked with many athletes in the past and having been under his guidance for close to a decade, he probably knows how my body reacts to certain training regime more than me.

Before I met Mr Ng in 2008, I was under Mr Wong Chong Sai, who coaches the pole vault event in Victoria School. He focused on general fitness, agility and technique which is very important for this event.

I am lucky to have met these two coaches who have taught me lessons beyond the sport.

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

I try to keep my diet in general proportions, proteins roughly 60%, carbs 40% inclusive of vegetables. Fruits are also consumed regularly and I take vitamin and fish oil daily. Oh, and I would also take whey protein after a hard gym session.

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

I study using the remaining time I have apart from training but the real interest in going to school is spending time with my friends.

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

We all have 24 hours a day, so I try to prioritize things. A friend told me once, “Everything is important, but what is urgent?” hence determine what is urgent and plan your time according to those things.

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

I do 3x technical and speed training, 2x weights training per week. I plan these with my coach to suit my body and also work around my current work load.

Q) What are your long term athletics goals?

Achieve the best possible throw.

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

Be open to suggestions, understand what these people are trying to convey to you and use them to improve. There are many solutions to a single problem, test them out and find the one that is the most suitable for you. Above all, enjoy yourself.
