Her career was handed a boost on April 2 when she was among the inaugural batch of 48 athletes from 22 sports inducted into the Sports Excellence Potential programme at the Singapore Sports School.

For me to perform well during competitions, I have to be steady and calm.” Titus said: “Our kayaking journey has been full of ups and downs so it’s an honour for us to receive this because of the amount of hard work that we put in. It’s an acknowledgement that our hard work has paid off.”
