Reason: "My dad was a coach, so we started off being dragged to the court pretty much, but later on I really liked the sport, I had a bit of talent and, with a bit of hard work, I felt like I had the technique and the skill to progress." (starweekly.com.au, 28 Feb 2018)
Memorable: "Commonwealth Games top eight, qualifying for the world championships, Australian number one ranked." (sportforwomen.com.au, 2011)

Additional information

MOVE
Moved from Malaysia to Australia with family at age 16. Represented Malaysia in badminton at junior level. (corporate.olympics.com.au, 2012)


RETIREMENT
Retired after the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, but came out of retirement in December 2017 with the goal of competing at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "That’s the reason why I took the opportunity to make a comeback. I was really thinking twice, but I haven’t played a big event on home ground before, so when they asked me I said 'for sure'. Luckily my work was flexible and my boss was supportive, so I’m working part-time while training for the Commonwealth Games." (starweekly.com.au, 28 Feb 2018)
