Lena is passionate about rugby, and about the fitness preparation that is crucial to it. A rugby player as well as a coach, she represented Malaysia in 2011 in the national 7s squad. Lena is currently coaching an under 18 girls team and women’s open level. She is also starting to get involved in refereeing rugby matches. Apart from getting involved in the practical side of the game, she is also the Honorary Secretary one of the local rugby clubs, the KK Sharks RFC, and the team manager for the men’s open team.
When not playing rugby, Lena would prefer to run half marathons. She is currently getting used to trail running and cycling – with a view someday to get involved in triathlon racing. Lena also learnt mixed martial arts for its fitness value.
She has a level 1 and level 2 rugby coaching certificate conferred by the International Rugby Board (now known as World Rugby) and sanctioned by the Malaysia Rugby Union. On top of that, Lena also has a Level 1 Strength & Conditioning coaching certificate by IRB as well.
Her ambition is to train Sabahan to a level of fitness that will enable them to enjoy taking part in other sports at all levels.
