Yong Sheng

A 25 year old masters student studying Sports Management at Loughborough University, guy living in the UK. Proud to be born and raised in Singapore and still calls Singapore his home.

Trying to live freely, see the world as it is, take a few photographs, explore the amazing gift of life and meet the awesome people around him.

Once dreamt of becoming a decathlete 7 years ago and today, has 6 decathlons under his belt and ended up running for his country.

I don’t pretend to be a brilliant athlete, I’m not, yet.

But I always give my very best.

Never Give Up.

    Finally surpassed the great firewall of China to reach your blog. Will check back on it regularly. As much as are brothers, we are both living our own lives. Keep walking the road you are on my brother. I will always believe in you, and have faith in the choices that you make in your life. There is no other way but forward, and I find courage and inspiration in your sharing to keep believing in myself.

      Hey bro! Great to hear from you! Got your mail about your travels and I am looking forward to see the photo journal of yours! You’ve always been an inspiration and if you haven’t read the post go to part 2 of the first post series (click on ‘find out how the journey began’ to the right sidebar) to see how big a part you played in me being right here where I’m at now. So thank you bro for everything and all the best for your journey ahead =)

  3. hey!! just popping by to give you words of encouragement. i really admire you pursuing your dream, not many people can find the fervor in them to push on.

    wish you all the best in your journey and am looking forward to the stories you’ll share when we meet up!

      Thanks wen! Will absolutely try my best over the next two days. See you in SG when I get back! =)

  4. Nice blog you have here. It’s good to see a fellow Southeast Asian track & field athlete in cyberspace. Good luck in your sporting career.

      Hi there, thanks for dropping by! Followed your link to you blog and it’s inspiring to go see you go ahead to balance your sport and your career, not many in our region do that. Anyway all the best for your training and hopefully we’ll meet at the track for SEA games someday =)

      • I’d love to compete in the SEA Games, but I’m way too slow. But as they say, “Impossible is Nothing.” I’ll probably go to Singapore once I run fast again.

        Well then, it’s good to know someone else there in the quest for speed. Train well!
