Would you say there's a difference between life in Penang and KL?Notice: Undefined variable: curr_post_img in /home/leaderon/public_html/wp-content/themes/weeklynews/elements/parts/on line 31 " onclick="window.open(this.href, 'weeklywin', 'left=50,top=50,width=600,height=360,toolbar=0'); return false;" Having personal goals during early childhood is not something many would have given much thought.Datuk Nicol David, who started her journey towards achieving her ambition at a tender age of five, is one extraordinary person who knew what she wanted right from the beginning of her illustrious career.Although she does admit to enjoying anything fried or deep-fried; cheat days be damned.4.Back home in Penang When she’s back home in Penang she names char kuey teow and chilli crab as her must eats, and Batu Ferringhi beach, Chulia Court, The Tavern and Three Sixty Skybar as her must visits.5.The cliché “needs no introduction” is anything but when it comes to Datuk Nicol David.If you really don’t know who she is, you’ve either (a) been living under a rock or (b) been living in a hut, hidden in a remote cave that happens to be blocked-in by a really large rock.So, it was a no-brainer for us to highlight Datuk Nicol’s achievements and include her in this year’s Generation T list alongside other sports persons like Weiron Tan and Mohd Faiz Subri.“It is an honour to be part of the Generation T list and thank you for recognising my efforts in squash,” she says in our correspondence.“These last 2 years have been challenging. Check out her moves as she blends squash, hip hop and dance: Hey @missymisdemeanorelliott! #Im Better struck me right to the core & brought out this mash up of both squash & dance. : D #somethingdifferent #ilovesquash #hiphoprnbfan @psaworldtour A post shared by Nicol David (@nicoldsquash) on 3.I’ve had to deal with the reality of not being at the top, but I’ve come to understand myself personally on a deeper level and it has helped me move forward to become a better and stronger player.”“I hate losing,” she admits “and that competitive edge has always pushed me further every time, so my plan is to keep improving myself personally and as a player to get to that next level and my full potential.”With plenty of literary landscape already dedicated to her over so many years, we decided to learn about the side not many people see – beyond the squash player. Serious daily diet As you would expect, her daily diet is no-nonsense performance based starting with granola for breakfast, eggs or a sandwich for lunch, and either plenty of rice, noodles or pasta on the days she trains her endurance, or plenty of fish and meat on the days she trains in the gym.Hopes for the future Finally, she hopes to be a source of inspiration to other Malaysians to pursue more sporting activities and encourage more sports in schools, with greater sport development.She was amazing and has achieved many awards due to her contribution to the country involving squash until now and in the future.
