Alhamdulillah pada seri terakhir IFSC WorldCup Xiamen saya bisa memecahkan rekor dunia baru 6,995 detik dari rekor sebelumnya 7,101 detik dipegang Yi Ling Song, lawan saya di final. . Ternyata kekuatan pikiran sangatlah luar biasa. Akhir agustus lalu saya mengalami cidera tangan kanan di bagian jari dan itu mempengaruhi performa saya sehingga tidak dapat mencapai limit waktu seperti pada saat latihan. Dan, ini sedikit mengganggu konsentrasi saya menjelang kompetisi, "Apakah mungkin saya bisa tampil maksimal'" . Namun, di tengah keraguan, selalu ada pelatih, keluarga dan tim yang selalu mensuport saya. Bahwa tidak ada yang tidak mungkin selagi kita mau berusaha. "Lupakan rasa sakit! Ubah menjadi kekuatan!" .
