IWD 2023: From Courts To Screens

For over 20 years, Sharon Wee had ruled supreme on the squash court, a former national #1 & world #18. After she retired in 2010, she wanted to remain with the national setup by lending her experience with senior coaching - however, that wasn't meant to be. Enter TV and sports broadcasting, as she took the plunge and made a successful endeavor diving into sports punditry and hosting. She also has since taken up the post of vice-president at Squash Racquets Association of Malaysia and was recently appointed as deputy chef de mission at the upcoming SEA Games in Cambodia. She joins us on the programme as we talk about her accomplished career, challenges moving into broadcasting, as well as uncover her passion to champion many youth and women empowerment programs.
