Unceremoniously Discarded, Wee Wern Aims To Bounce Back Strong

Although 2022's national budget is the biggest to-date, funding for sports was significantly reduced by 70%. As a result, at the turn of the new year, the National Sports Council announced that they will be dropping 144 full-time athletes from their training program. With that number representing almost half of the roster, some big names were under the NSC's cross-hairs. Former world number 5 Low Wee Wern was one of those cut after 14 years with the national team, and the 31 year old joins us as we dig deeper into the manner she was dismissed & look forward to her future as an independent athlete.
