Joosin returns for her second OCBC Cycle S’pore!

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

At the same training clinic where I interviewed cycling coach Low Ji Wen, I also got to interview two participants – Joosin and Chris Song.

 

Joosin, 38, is returning to take part in the OCBC Cycle Singapore a second time this year with an aim to better her result of last year. She has been training hard, cycling 20km three times a week and attending training clinics by Tribob as well.

 

Often cycling with her husband, Joosin enjoys meeting people through sports and benefitting from the various health aids that sports bring about.

 

Read on about the cycling aspect of Joosin’s life…
