IWD 2022: One Giant Leap For Womankind

In conjunction with International Women's Day, on the programe we have Datuk Leong Mun Yee, the first Malaysian - be it male or female - to compete in the Olympics five times, Sydney (2000), Athens (2004), Beijing (2008), London (2012) & Tokyo (2021). We take a deep dive into her career from her early beginnings as a budding swimmer to now being bestowed with a Datukship & continuing her diving career as a coach as part of the national setup. We discover what makes her tick & how her 27-year career inspired many girls and boys alike.
