T. Piriyah will be representing Singapore in the Women 400 Meter Dash 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: 22 years old
Coach: Viatcheslav Vassiliev

How’s your preparation leading up to Singapore Open?
I have been consistently training and following my coach’s program.
What is your expectation in terms of results at Singapore Open?
I am hoping to do a decent timing for my 400m and also for the 4x400m. Singapore open will also be part of my preparation for ASIAN games.
Who do you look up to (eg idol, mentor) for inspiration?
I do not really have a particular idol but I was fortunate to be able to meet and interact with Allyson Felix when she was in Singapore last year. I really liked her humble and friendly character even though she’s so famous. I believe that staying humble is a very important character trait that everyone should have, regardless of how famous they are.
How did you get started in athletics?
I got started in this sport when my primary school track and field coach spotted me running during the schools sports day. He encouraged me to join the track team when I was in primary 4 and I haven’t stopped running since.
