Wendy Closes The Chapter

After two decades in diving, national athlete Wendy Ng Yan Yee announced her retirement from top-level competition just last month. Wendy began as a rhythmic gymnast before being recruited into the national diving team at the age of 13. Excelling in the sport, her last competition was at the World Championships in Doha in February, a final qualifying event for the upcoming Paris Olympics. Unfortunately, she did not qualify for the women's 3-metre springboard solo and synchronized events, missing the chance to compete in her fourth consecutive Olympics. Shortly after, she announced her retirement and hinted at a possible future in coaching. Throughout her career, she has under her belt eight gold and seven silver medals across the Asian Games, Commonwealth Games, and SEA Games, as well as representing Malaysia in three Olympic Games.
