PERSONAL

Family: Parents Francis Ng and Clara Chalifour… Younger brother Derrick is also a member of the national badminton team… Getting into the Sport: Starting playing at age 6 as a recreational activity with his family… Outside Interests: Graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2014 (Bachelor of Kinesiology)… In the off-season works as a strength and conditioning coach focusing on health, fitness, nutrition, supplementation… Works as an USANA business associate… Odds and Ends: Inspired by Bruce Lee for his overall training philosophy and quotes… Favourite quotes: “Success is doing what you need to do, when you need to do it, whether you want to or not.” and “For those who kept saying it can’t be done / Never are the victories or the honors won / But, rather, by the believing, doing kind / While the doubters watched from far behind.” (Bruce Lee)… Before each match says to partner “Nothing to lose” and she replies “Everything to win”… Used to collect alcohol unique to the countries he visited but doesn’t really drink so now has too many bottles…  Nickname: Tobes, Tobidoki…
