BREAKING STEROTYPES
"Academia is more the Asian way - a doctor, lawyer, that sort of thing - and anything after that you do as a weekend hobby. But my parents have been very good about letting me select my own path. They got a few looks from other families, saying, 'Are you letting your son go full-time into sport?' I want to show that sport can be a profession and the right path for you." (standard.co.uk, 11 Aug 2016)
