PHNOM PENH: One week before he headed to the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games, ju-jitsu exponent Noah Lim dislocated his pinky.
He tried visiting a doctor, went to a traditional Chinese medicine clinic, tried acupuncture and did physiotherapy – but still ended up on a plane to Cambodia nursing the injured little finger.
So he focused on what he could control.
“Of course I was very sad … but there are things you can control and things you can’t control. I focused on what I could control, I did my best to rest, iced my finger, massaged (it),” Lim told reporters.
“I can’t even bend it fully even now. But again, that’s outside my control. I just did what I can.”
