Charlene is a student-triathlete currently racing as an age-grouper. Formerly a gymnast of 12 years, she stumbled upon triathlon when she entered university in 2013. She relished the challenges that came with the multi-sport nature of triathlon and she started racing in both local and regional races (Metasprint Series, Bintan Triathlon and Port Dickson International Triathlon) where she finished in podium spots in her Age Group. In 2016, she came in 2nd in her Age Group at the Ironman 70.3 Asia Pacific Championships in Cebu, which also earned her a qualification slot for the 70.3 World Championships 2017 to be held in Chattanooga, USA. This year, the key focus would definitely be the 70.3 World Championships, and subsequently, other 70.3 distance races to strive for more personal bests and growth in this sport!
