When did you begin handcycling?
June of last year.
Were you introduced to other sports before handcycling?
I tried bicycles before, but I couldn’t do it. My father likes to cycle and bought me
a small bike but I couldn’t manage to cycle. I also tried badminton and archery
at sporting events organised by Singapore Disability Sport Council. But I didn’t like it.
Then what got you interested in handcycling the first place?
I was introduced by one of my seniors who was in contact with Club Rainbow.
She is part of the handcycling programme.
