Our Ambassadors

Tevis Ong

I have always loved sports. In my younger days, I would enjoy playing basketball, badminton, golf and some swimming, but never cycled or ran. I started my revolution into triathlon in 2012 not knowing what I was getting into.

I am not your typical looking triathlete, where running and cycling has never come easy because of my size & weight (even now).

However, as a competitive Age Group athlete, I have since completed numerous multisport events (with multiple podiums), including over 25 half Ironman, 2 Full Ironman, represented Malaysia at the 2019 SEA Games, and was the first Malaysian to conquer the Swissman (Switzerland) and Celtman (Scotland) Extreme Triathlons. I also qualified for the 70.3 Ironman World Championships in 2015.

Looking good is always essential, but slow down? You must be joking! Once you are in, you go all the way cos the races are more mental than it is physical! Norseman here I come to finish the Extreme Tri-Fecta!

Tan Hui Jin

Hui Jin, is an avid runner who joined many running events and participated in many disciplines including road, ultra, trails and cycling. She has been one of the many who completed the Abbott WMM Tokyo Marathon in the year 2016. It has been 10 years since she took up running thus making her inspire more people to take up running slowly but surely!

She started picking up Triathlon last year and her inspiration of becoming a triathlete is when she was just a spectator 6 years ago at the finishing line.

She joined the Olympic Distance at Putrajaya on March 2022, and that’s when her journey begins. From an Olympic distance to a half marathon and ultimately completing a Full Ironman Distance (Swim 3.8KM, Bike 180KM & Run 42KM) in just 9 months’ time and completed as the 1st runner up in her age group category at the Ironman Langkawi 2022.

“Discipline & Self Achievements” is the key motivation that keeps her moving forward.

Johnny Lim

Johnny Lim is adventurous, passionate in all kinds of sports, and always determined to achieve his goals.

Back in Dec 2020, he picked up cycling when he couldn’t do any of his favourite sports (indoor) such as badminton & rock climbing due to Covid-19 pandemic. Ever since then he has been in love with cycling, and eventually the passion extended to triathlon.

He is an all rounded sports person (or at least he’d like to believe so) and it certainly resonates well with the vision of Sports Paragon “to provides all rounded sporting gears to the world”. With the support of Sports Paragon, he had completed his very first Triathlon. He is set to participate in many more multi sport races and aims to achieve his ultimate dream of completing a full distance Ironman in the future.

Oscar Yeong

Ever since I can remember, my heart has been fuelled by a deep love of Sports and a burning desire to stay fit. The interplay between physical activity, competition, and the pursuit of personal growth has become the driving force in my life.

From an early age, I was a Badminton School Player and Selangor State Softball Player. I also found immense joy in engaging with other sports disciplines. Whether it was shooting hoops on the basketball court, or chasing down a drop shot on the tennis court, the exhilaration of physical activity always resonated with me.

As my love for sports grew, I began exploring different activities to expand my skill set and challenge myself further. I delved into Obstacle Course Racing (OCR), I took up running and discovered the power of endurance and self-motivation, pushing myself to go further with every step. Being one of the Spartan Malaysia Ambassadors, holding the Malaysia flag on a podium or at the finishing line is a symbol of pride and achievement. I was also qualified for the Age Group Spartan World Championship 2022 and 2023.

As I continue on my journey as a sports lover and fitness enthusiast, I remain committed to pushing my boundaries, exploring new sports such as Rock Climbing, Dragon Boat Racing, etc. Inspiring others to embark on their own athletic endeavours. I’m ready to wholeheartedly embrace the challenge with the support of Sports Paragon.

Nichole Au

Hello! I’m Nichole, and my journey with sports has been a fascinating evolution from a non-sporty childhood to a passionate appreciation for physical activity in my adult year.

During my early years, the idea of competitive sports or intense physical activity wasn’t particularly appealing to me. However, something remarkable happened when I decided to join my mother through her fitness routine.

I began to recognize the countless benefits of incorporating exercises into my life. I took small steps, trying out different sports and activities to see what resonated with me. Along the way, I got into trail running and it has been a staple of my Sunday activity for a good few years.

As the pandemic persisted, I sought further diversification in my fitness routine. Enter cycling. The decision to embrace cycling was not only a response to the limitations imposed by the circumstances but also a realization of the versatility and freedom it offered. Cycling became a means to explore greater distances to maintain my fitness levels in an enjoyable way.

This journey has taught me that personal growth knows no bounds, and sometimes, the activities we least expect to love can become a significant and fulfilling part of our lives. I am excited about the opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals who share a love for an active lifestyle!
