Cecilia Yeung is Hong Kong’s high-jump record holder, breaking the local record six times and winning a silver medal at the 2017 Asian Championships. But her path to success hasn’t been obstacle-free – Yeung has endured injuries that prevented her from competing, as well as the constant pressure of all eyes being on her to earn a ticket to the Olympics. She’s hasn’t let negativity or inner demons get to her head, and continues to spread her own brand of positivity to her fans both during and out of training. Her biggest mission is to break her own personal record again and to go to the Olympics, but she’s also founded the Aim Higher Club to inspire the young. Yeung makes motivational speeches in schools and universities, inspiring students to find their life goals whether through sport or other passions.
Yeung spreads an abundance of positivity via Instagram to her 120K-and-counting followers. Not one to quit even when the going gets tough, her goal is to jump higher and break her own record, while also spreading her aim-higher mentality to those around her.
