Pieces fall into place

SMU student Kimberly Lim and her sailing partner Cecilia Low are nominees for the 2021 ST Athlete of the Year award. They won gold at the 2018 Asian Games and represented Singapore at the Tokyo Olympics. They shared about their struggles and how the support of those around them was vital. After the seven-year voyage, Kimberly and Cecilia are unsure what lies ahead for them. They hope to win a medal at September's Asian Games in Hangzhou while juggling their studies at SMU and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Asia respectively. But there is uncertainty about Paris 2024, which will feature equipment changes, and both want to test out the revised updates before committing to another campaign.
