How did you get into dragonboat racing?
I’m very much into water sports. So when a friend asked me to try dragonboating, I did. I picked it up relatively fast.
What is a dragonboat training session like?
Boat rowing is an important aspect, but we top it up with runs, weights, circuits, still water rowing and more to make training more complete. Many of us also cross-train in other sports to keep our fitness level up. My motto is: No pain, no gain.
What is the best part of dragonboat training?
Knowing that all members in the team have put in their best during training and hanging out together for a good meal.
What are some of the other sports that you do?
Swimming, running, scuba diving, wakeboarding, beach volleyball, biathlon and canoeing.
What is your diet like?
My breakfast consists of carbohydrates like light pastries and bread, eggs and Milo. I don’t usually have lunch, but snack on fruit and energy bars. Dinner is usually white meat like chicken and fish with vegetables. I try to stay away from fried and oily food. I may eat KFC and indulge in a buffet meal once in awhile. I also love desserts and ice cream.
