Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began diving at age seven in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Why this sport?
She started swimming at age seven but her father, who was a teacher, realised her physique was more suitable for diving and got her to switch sports. "My father put me into diving after reading an article about it. [Malaysian diver] Pandelela Rinong was a rising star at the time. I fell in love with the sport when I won my first medal at age nine at the 2008 Malaysian Games [SUKMA] in Terengganu."
