“As a start, next month I will be participating in the Asian Diving Championship Cup and the Malaysia Diving Championship in Kuala Lumpur. For me, calmness in the mind and getting your body ready is as important as the need to win.”

“These two qualities will be crucial in making sure my training process goes on smoothly. I have to work harder compared to the other athletes, which will make a difference in the end.”

“Also, my London vacation has provided me enough rest and I’m motivated more than ever now,” she told Berita Harian, after arriving at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
