Wan Lay Chi

On the basis of performances this year, Wan Lay Chi is on a hot form and her recent inclusion to the ASEAN Schools squad this coming August will serve well to groom this young talent for the future. A recent bronze in Asian Junior 2004, double gold and new record holder in ‘B’ girls National Schools shotput and discus, we have an opportunity to speak to her

Height: 1.65m

Weight: 70kg

Born: 12 Sep 1988

Events: Shotput, Discus

  1. You currently broke 2 records at discus and shotput at National Schools 2004. Was it expected?

    Wan Lay Chi: Yes I did was expecting training wise I’m at a point for a personal breakthrough now

  2. At 11th Asian Junior Athletic Championships you won a bronze medal for Singapore with a shotput throw of 12.20m. Tell us of that day, the competitors and that throw

    Wan Lay Chi: That day I didn’t expect a good throw. I was just telling myself to do my best among Asia’s best young talent and not succumb to inexperience and pressure. I’m glad to have gotten a bronze back to Singapore. The competitors was friendly and we talked days during practice days before the shotput final which was held on the last day of the Asian Junior

  3. How did you get started in Track & Field?

    Wan Lay Chi: I was formerly a badminton player before I got spotted by my still current coach Mr Choo Chee Kiong. I joined the team and the seniors guided me

  4. What is you goal for this year and what is your long term goal?

    Wan Lay Chi: With recenly being selected for ASEAN School this 2-8 August, I’m hoping to improve my current shotput mark there. Long term wise, I would like to don Singapore colours at SEA Games

  5. Other than Field, what else is your passion/hobby

    Wan Lay Chi: I really love to rollerblade! But my coach advised me not to. After consideration, I myself think it’s wise not to take up such a sport as it can jeopardise my athletics career if I get injured during blading. I need to instill discpline as I wish to go far in athletics

  6. Zhang Guirong is going to Athens Olympics, do you know her. What do you think are her chances there

    Wan Lay Chi: Yes I do know her closely. Her chances are ok but medal wise it will be abit tough in the ‘B’ Finals

  7. Do you think S’pore athletes are getting enough help or grants from the association? Any problems you face now during training/compeitions

    Wan Lay Chi: Currently I’m fine with the help given by the SAAA

Wan Lay Chi is equipped with a resume that reflects the thematic flavor and focus of a lifelong athlete. We thank Wan Lay Chi for this interview
