Nothing was easy. My partner, Clara, my coach, King, and I were aiming to get into the top 8 at the Asian Games.

Unfortunately, I sprained my ankle one week before departure, which frustrated me beyond belief. I had physiotherapy every day following the injury, and tried to recover as quickly as possible.
