A month after she bought a bicycle, Chris Ang went for the Audax 200km ride and loved cycling so much that she joined her friends for weekly group rides. It was during one of these rides that she learnt what an Ironman triathlon is.
Curious to give it a try, she started to train for swimming and completed her first triathlon in the same year – the Bukit Merah 113 in September 2016. “It was a wonderful experience where I enjoyed every moment of it without the desire of chasing for time or position. I completed it with a great smile!” she recalled.
A few months later, she took part in Ironman Malaysia and that goes down as her most memorable experience ever. “The months of sweat, time spent, effort and hard work put in, tears and satisfaction all made this the most memorable one for me,” she said.
The 31-year-old senior operation manager for an F&B company has racked up a list of achievements, including overall women champion for Powerman Malaysia (sprint) 2019, overall women champion for Educity Duathlon (sprint) 2019, winner of the Melaka Triathlon (sprint) 2018, 2nd runner-up in Challenger Iskandar 2018 and more.
