Kimi, originally from Selangor, has been in KK for the past 6 years. Love for a balanced lifestyle made him and his wife him fall in love with living in Sabah. He is an engineer by profession, but most of the time introduces himself as a full time triathlete. He started doing triathlon when he decided to conquer his fear of water – from not knowing how to swim, he has now completed more than 7 triathlon races including the inaugural Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya 2014. Now, he is focusing on improving his time by racing half iron distance triathlon, all around the world.
Sports and endurance has always been part of his Kimi’s life. Involved with the Selangor Youth Sepak Takraw Development Program (led by his late father) during his primary school years, he represented Malacca and Malaysia in Squash during his teen years, continuing on until now. He was part of the group of students who revived the Auckland University Squash Club while studying in New Zealand, with the goal of promoting squash and helping newcomers improve their game.
Now, he is very keen to help anyone who is interested in triathlon. He realises that fitness training is the basic key to all sports. By being part of the Warrior team, he aims to help improve the community’s health awareness and way of life.
To him, exercising is not just about getting fit. It’s all about allowing you to live healthily and having fun doing it. It’s a way of life. Nothing is more rewarding than to see a person improve his quality of life by being healthy, and being part of his journey achieving it.
Kimi looks forward to working with you all – beginners as well as athletes!
