Esther confident of regaining fitness ahead of World Cup

Slow and steady: Esther Cheah has started light training after a six-month break following a knee surgery.

PETALING JAYA: It is never easy to start all over again but Esther Cheah is willing to give it a shot.

The 36-year-old bowler has been itching to compete in official championships as it has been three years since her last appearance in the 2019 Philippines SEA Games.

And the seasoned campaigner hopes to make a return in the International Bowling Federation (IBF) World Cup from Nov 3-16 at the Washington Bowling Saloon in Victoria, Australia.

Esther has started light training after a six-month break to recover from a knee surgery but she knows that she is not as fit as she used to be.

Despite the slow progress, Esther has faith in herself.

“Right now, I’m just trying to regain my fitness because I lost quite a bit of muscle due to surgery and rehabilitation.”

“It is a slow progress but I’m getting there,” said Esther.

Esther is excited with her comeback plans but will need to get the doctor’s approval that she is in good shape to compete.“Hopefully, I will get the green light,” she said.
