Additional information
General
OLYMPIC DEBUT
She says making her Olympic debut at the 2020 Games in Tokyo was challenging, but that it ranked among the best experiences of her career. "It was challenging, both mentally and physically. However, realising my dream since I was three and competing on the Olympic stage has been the most amazing and indescribable feeling. I choked up immediately after walking off the competition floor with feelings of amazement and a sense of accomplishment that I had finally done it. Waking up the day after my competition, I had tears in my eyes. I felt immense pride in having completed this colossal goal. I had performed to the best of my capabilities at the Olympics." (freemalaysiatoday.com, 01 Aug 2021)

INJURY TROUBLE
Injuries have led her to consider quitting the sport at certain points in her career. "There were multiple times I felt like throwing in the towel and said maybe this is not for me, especially when I got injured. Then when you come back, you are way below everyone else, training is very hard and I didn't really see the point of carrying on because I wasn't competing well and kept losing, it was very frustrating because I was working very hard. My family always said that I do it because I love it, so that mindset always helped me because I never felt like I need to train because of my parents, or anything else, it was only because I wanted to." (R.AGE YouTube channel, 11 Sep 2020; malaymail.com, 19 Nov 2019; sea.mashable.com, 07 Oct 2019)
