FOCUS ON EDUCATION
Despite his desire to compete at the Olympic Games, he says he will focus on his studies after the 2014 Asian Games in Incheon, Korea. "If possible, I would love to qualify for the Olympic class but no plans have been put in place right now, since my priority after the [Asian] Games will still be my exams." (todayonline.com, 21 Jul 2014)

ACCIDENT
In November 2011 he crashed into a trailer parked at the side of the road while cycling. The impact caused severe trauma to his spine and he was paralysed in his right leg, lost all sensation in his left leg, suffered torn ligaments and a fractured finger. But just four months later he was sailing again and won a school national title. "While lying in bed in the hospital, I came to the realisation that I really love and miss sailing. Sailing is my passion and because of it, I did whatever it takes to get well so that I could sail again." (easternhealth.sg, 05 Jun 2012)
