For Jiamin, starting with dragon boating was a very random decision by approaching a friend one day and decided to try. 5 years later, Jiamin is still around, enjoying every moment of being part of a big paddling community.

What Jiamin loves most about Austcham is definitely the people! Austcham embraces people of different nationality, age as well as level of experience. It is also a team where we’re not only competitive on water, but also have time out of water to mingle with fellow paddlers over a few glasses.

Jiamin has a love-hate relationship with races preparation. Spending hours at the gym and training in water, be it under the scorching sun or a gloomy day. But at end of the day, celebrating with the gold medal around her neck makes every blood and sweat worth it!
