How’s your preparation leading up to Singapore Open?
The preparation for leading to Sing open has been going well. Because of the Commonwealth Games, we’re getting back to our optimum form after the short rest we had.
What is your expectation in terms of results at Singapore Open?
It would be a tough fight, many athletes from other countries that are participating, are also headed to the Asian Games, so I’m sure that we would make out the best of this situation, and use it better our timings.
Who do you look up to (eg idol, mentor) for inspiration?
I don’t have anyone in particular, I would just say watching all those elite athletes competing & running their hearts out, makes me want to believe that I too have the capability to not give up.
How did you get started in athletics?
I started in Primary School. I competed for my house at the annual sports day, then i tried out for the trails in Singapore Sports School, and officially began track in Secondary One.
