Anja Chong first stepped on the ice at a friend’s ice skating birthday party when she was 9. From there, she started taking figure skating lessons at her local rink. Anja had a love of speed, and was constantly seen racing her friends around the rink. Not surprisingly, she eventually swapped her figure skates for short track skates.
Encouraged by her sister, Anja decided to pursue short track seriously. Although she had to put her dreams on hold to focus on finishing her law degree, she is now back with more determination than ever.
