Trust is one of the core values that underscores Amanda Ng’s approach to sailing. As a national sailor and windsurfer who spends hours each day training out at sea, trust is about having confidence in your partner, respecting nature in all of its unpredictability and might, and listening to your gut instinct.
A veteran sailor who started sailing at the age of nine, Amanda will be representing Singapore at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, sailing with Jovina Choo in the Women’s 470 category. What an incredible feat to be competing at the world’s greatest sporting stage at the young age of 22!
We chat with Amanda to find out what drives her in the weeks leading up to the Olympics.
