    I recall she was also the youngest to appear in some world champ or world team championships.

    Young little lady, with the huge backing from her folks, especially the big sacrifice from her Mom
    Not sure if there is much support from the national federation, but the travel away to train in Harbin with a high level coach friend of mine, and to still do home study is sure not easy when she was not even a teenager yet

    Yeah that's the issue with little nations in TT like Wales when it comes to young players development. Like the african ones who go to France or Germany.

    And that's probably why she's now strugglin with that glass ceiling because she did not do very well in the past year, that 15 to 17 years old zone is quite difficult for the teenagers, even Prithika Pavade is now back to compete in WTT Youth events because the switch to the senior level was pretty hard for her recently, also because she kept on graduating for the Baccalauréat just after the olympics.
