POWERLIFTER TO ARCHER
Earlier in her career she competed in Para powerlifting, winning a bronze medal in the +86kg category at the 2014 Asian Para Games in Incheon, Republic of Korea. In 2016 she revealed that she was switching her focus to Para archery after losing her passion for powerlifting. "I felt that I was no longer able to achieve the international results that would satisfy my ambitions. I chose the bow and arrow because I felt it was a sport that fit my abilities and would allow me to achieve good results."
