How’s your preparation leading up to Singapore Open?
Preparation has been going as planned. Lots of rest and hoping for all to go well in the next few days.
What is your expectation in terms of results at Singapore Open?
Hoping to break PB/SB in my races and ending it well for the relays!
Who do you look up to (eg idol, mentor) for inspiration?
I really have lots of respect for all the athletes who continue to push themselves and never give up whatever the circumstances may be. Elite or not, I think the dedication they have is really admirable. Can’t name all cause that’ll take forever haha! So I strive to be like them. My family, my coach and my friends are my “mentors” because they never fail to support and encourage me, so they definitely inspire me in their own unique ways.
How did you get started in athletics?
I started athletics when I was in Temasek Primary School and I guess the love for it just grew from there,and still growing (thankfully).
