Sporting philosophy / motto "When you compete locally and win, you feel that you are good, but the real test is out there and competing with the best shooters from around the world.

Other information RETIREMENT TOUGHTS
After winning silver in the 25m rapid fire pistol event at the 2017 South East Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, he suggested that it would possibly be his last South East Asian Games appearance after making his debut at the 1997 edition in Jakarta. "It may be just a silver, but I'm still pleased with my efforts, especially since the rapid fire, which is my pet event, wasn't held in the last two Games. In any case I may retire from contesting the SEA Games to let the juniors take over. But overall I will continue to compete as I feel there isn't anyone to replace me yet."
