Winnie Chong represented UMSA for the Bersatu Games 2016 with strong passion and determination. She was involved in many different sports in Bersatu. She was always active, encouraging and supportive among her teammates. The most important thing was that she never gave up even in her toughest moments. Here is Winnie sharing her great Bersatu experiences with you to inspire you.
“Last year was my first year playing Bersatu, so the excitement and buzz is still so vivid in my mind. Despite playing multiple sports, I had the honours of captaining netball. Watching my girls grow and improve was immensely gratifying! Seeing your friends progress and playing alongside them week by week in other sports leading up to the games, deepens friendships and sportsmanship. If you’re curious about a sport you’ve never played before, give it a go! By playing sports and training weeks on end with your teammates, creates endless connections and bonds. Plus, multiple studies show that exercise and connections are imperial to your health and well-being.
These friendships are not only made within your contingent. They are made country wide and worldwide. Being part of such a big community that is so warm and welcoming is definitely one you would not want to miss out on! Competition! Sociality! Fun! Whatever the reason, seize this perfect opportunity!
“The only failure in life is the failure to participate”. So why not give it a crack?”
We hope the message from Winnie had managed to inspire you to participate in the Bersatu Games with UMSA. Remember to keep your chin up no matter how rough the tides are. Challenge yourself if you’re up for the challenge – because we know you can be the next champion.
