Additional Information Start of sporting career
He learned to swim at about age three in Singapore. (prischew.com, 19 Nov 2013; teamsingapore.com.sg, 08 Nov 2011)

Reason for taking up this sport
"My parents wanted me to [learn to swim], because Singapore is surrounded by water. I enjoyed swimming so much. When they put me under the water I wasn't afraid, unlike other kids. I just used to giggle and found I really liked being in the water." (prischew.com, 19 Nov 2013)

Ambitions
To win a medal at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. (sg.sports.yahoo.com, 02 Dec 2013)

Training
He trains for three hours in the afternoon from Monday to Friday. He also trains for two hours on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings, and for three hours on Saturday mornings. (prischew.com, 19 Nov 2013)

Most influential person in career
His parents, and coach Sergio Lopez Miro. (jacksonville.com, 17 Jul 2012)

Sporting philosophy / motto
"If you want something badly enough, you will do whatever it takes to get it." (prischew.com, 19 Nov 2013)

Awards
He received an Individual Meritorious Award at the 2013 Singapore Sports Awards. (singaporeolympics.com, 2013)

He was named the 2012 Sportsman of the Year at the Singapore Sports Awards. At age 16, he was the youngest person [at the time] to win the award. (sg.sports.yahoo.com, 30 May 2012)

General
DEFERRED MILITARY TIME
In October 2013 the Singapore government agreed he could delay his national service until August 2016 to allow him to focus on training for the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. "I'm doing this because I love my country. I want to bring pride and glory to my country. If you ask me if swimming itself is a form of national service, I couldn't answer that question. It's not up to me. My job is to swim." (sg.sports.yahoo.com, 02 Dec 2013; straitstimes.com, 21 Oct 2013)

MOVING TO THE UNITED STATES
He believes being based in the United States has helped his swimming career. "I don't get the pressure and the media hype like I do in Singapore. In the US I can just be a normal kid, and I don't have to worry about people watching my every move. I can focus on my own expectations as opposed to other people's. I think the environment in the US is more suitable for competitive sports because everyone is so competitive and wants to win. I'm not saying that people don't want to win in Singapore, but it is just more electrifying with a higher tempo in the US." (prischew.com, 19 Nov 2013)
