About Athlete

My name is Aidan, I was born in Kuala Lumper, Malaysia and was adopted at birth. I have been playing rugby for about 7 years now coming up to my 8th and I’m in love with the sport. In the school year we have seasons so it is not throughout the year; However, During my time off season I spend my time training with a club called the Taipei Baboons which help me develop my skill level and fitness. My team mostly relies on my strength with heavy runs to break through the line and to win scrums and lineouts.

I recently had a tournament called IASAS (Interscholastic Association of Southeast Asia Schools) rugby where 6 international schools compete in. The tournament was in Jakarta and our team ended up winning the tournament which was a big achievement because it was the first time in TAS (Taipei American School) history to ever to place 1st in IASAS rugby. In the tournament I ended up scoring 7 tries in the amount of 6 games.

What makes you different?

What makes me different from other student-athletes is that I believe very strongly in myself and my team. For example, I kept saying we are going to win our IASAS tournament and everyone doubted me and the team. Yet, I still believed that we could win and take the gold. What also makes me different from other student-athletes is that I am determined to prove people wrong and show that I or we can do what we need to do and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get what I want. What also makes me different from other students-athletes is my strength and speed with my size and acceleration it is very hard to stop.

Why do you want to compete in college?

My goal is to play at a higher level and understand the game more. Another goal is to improve my skill level on and off the field because I would love to continue to play at a higher level and pursue my dreams. The reason why I also want to compete in uni because I think I have what it takes to compete and be successful with my skill level.

College Goals?

My uni goals are to follow my rugby dreams and also to major in sports medicine. My goal in rugby is to help out the team and do whatever they need in order to find success. For my major my plan B is sports medicine I want to have a successful path and learning everything about it.
