Yeong Wai Mun is a Singaporean who took the uncommon step after graduating from the Nanyang Technological University of pursuing his Olympic rowing dream full-time. He funded his own training overseas and then took a shot at Olympic qualification in Shanghai. Here is his story in his own words.
From August 22nd to 25th 2008, Singapore will host the Asian Cup Rowing Championship at Pandan Reservoir. Featuring more than 100 participants from 10 countries, Singapore fans will get a chance to see local rowers Yeong Wai Mun, Sayidah Aisyah and Elsie Lim in action.
From the road, it's easy to miss Pandan Reservoir, an elevated reservoir situated in the midst of an industrial hub in the west.

It was here that I met 26-year-old Yeong Wai Mun, a recent mechanical engineering graduate of the Nanyang Technological University.
