Natural Ability

Mark started climbing in primary school, although it wasn’t a serious interest. He regained his focus in secondary school and right away his talent turned heads. He’s now trained around the world, most recently having returned from an intensive training programme in the UK.

His Biggest Challenge

Mark’s experience at the Youth Olympics in Argentina has taught him some valuable lessons. However, he’s also passionate about flying for the Singapore Air Force and his demanding coursework keeps him very busy. With equally bright prospects, he’s unsure of how he can commit to both his studies and his training.
Even with so much on his plate, Mark is totally focused on achieving his ambition: representing his nation at the next Olympics. You can be sure if he has a spare hour in the day, he’s making full use of it on a climbing wall.
