"It's not called gymNICEtics"

Throughout my gymnastics career, I was privileged to have many opportunities to represent Singapore. Here are some competitions I took part in:

  • 2014, Doha: 7th FIG Gymnastics World Challenge Cup
  • 2014, Glasgow: Commonwealth Games
  • 2015, Singapore: 28th Southeast Asian Games
  • 2015, Glasgow: World Artistic Gymnastics Championships


Doha World Challenge Cup 2014

This was my first international competition as a senior gymnast. To my surprise I managed to get a personal best score on the balance beam, as well as qualify for finals in both the uneven bars and balance beam.

Commonwealth Games, Glasgow 2014


We placed 6th out of 21 teams including England, Canada and Australia. It was an eye-opening experience staying in the Athletes Village, and watching other sports live.

Unfortunately I sustained a serious knee injury during the my performance on the floor exercise, which resulted in a long rehabilitation period after the competition.
