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.

consumers and us as ambassadors. We feel appreciated and proud to carry the
