7 years ago, Serene Lee represented Singapore in the 2010 UCI Road World Championships. Unfortunately, Serene’s dreams of clinching overall title was shattered by a crash 5km in. Despite her best efforts, she could not catch up with the leading cyclists.

Being a perfectionist, Serene likes to be in control. However, she admits that in the sport of cycling, “things go wrong, I need to be flexible and adaptable [sic].”  That persistent craving to finally clinch a medal for Singapore has led the national cyclist to set her sights on the upcoming Commonwealth Games 2018, Asian Games 2018 and SEA Games 2019 cycling events. She confesses “the latter two a real possibility of a medal”.

Through giving.sg, the national cyclist has started a campaign aiming at raising $4500 for her trip to Bergan, Norway to compete in the 2017 UCI Road World Championships. She will leave Singapore with three other athletes from the 16th to 24th September. With 24 more days to go, Serene has raised $3178 out of her overall intended sum.

Serene Lee – 

“It’s been 7 years since I first, and last did a world championships. That was my first full year of cycling and let’s just say it ended as quickly as it started – I was caught behind a crash 5km in and never regained contact with the front bunch. This time round, I’m adamant to last longer. Better yet, I hope to finish the race. And if I do get round to it, why can’t I dream and be a world champ? Oh how I kid.”
