Club / TeamSnow Leopard Speed Skating Club: Singapore  
Reason for choosing this sport"I got into the sport when I was in primary four. I just wanted to try out ice skating, and as I tried out ice skating, I remember watching a replay of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, and I saw short track speed skating in it, and I was just amazed at the speed they were going and the angle of their skating. It's kind of like - it defies physics and it's also a self-propelled sport. It made me want to try it out."
