Syaidatul Afifah Badrul Hamidi, turning 29 this year, is one of our country’s most decorated professional bowlers.
Her skill and passion for the sport did not go unnoticed, and in 2009 she was selected for the national team.
THE MATERIAL AND IMMATERIAL
Determination and strength of will must be complemented by physical training, and monetary support is necessary to get high-quality training to further polish her technique.
Many of us face challenges in the path of our careers, and Ms Syaidatul is no exception. One particularly memorable challenge was suffering from reduced performance after her coach made adjustments to her technique, which she realized after two years to be beneficial.
Other challenges she faced as female athlete was having to compete with male athletes in mixed-gender tournaments. She had to work harder in order to overcome the physical differences.
When asked if she had ever thought of giving up:
