"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
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.
Uneven Bars Final - 7th | Balance Beam Final - 7th
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.
Team Final - 6th
This was my first competition after my knee injury, and I was happy to help my team to a silver placing, as well as qualify for finals in the two events I competed in.
Team - Silver | Uneven Bars Final - 4th | Balance Beam Final - 8th
Am amazing experience to round off my gymnastics career, being able to compete with and watch world-class gymnasts (and sporting idols) such as Simone Biles and Aliya Mustafina.
