Who is Leong Mun Yee?
I have to admit that I know very little about Malaysia. This Asian nation is home to talented swimmers and divers as well. Leong Mun Yee is a synchronized diver that combines skill, talent, and beauty. I’ll also mention about her partner Pandelela Rinong Pamg or Rinong. Yes, those are very long names. Mun Yee entered the world on December 4, 1984. She stands at 163 centimeters tall.
So far Mun Yee has been a part of three Olympic Games. The 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia was her first one. She also took part in the 2004 Athens Games and the 2008 Games in Beijing.
Her biggest taste of success was during the 2009 World Championships where she earned a bronze medal in the 10 meter synchronized diving event. This was with partner Pandelela Rinong.
In 2002 at the Busan Games, Mun Yee won a bronze medal in the 3 meter synchronized diving event with Farah Begum Abdullah. Four years later during the 2006 Asian games in Doha, Mun Yee won an individual bronze medal in the 3 meter diving. She followed that up with another bronze medal during the 3 meter synchronized diving event. In the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, she won a silver medal in the 3 meter synchronized diving event. This was with partner Yan Yee NG. In the 10 meter synchronized diving event, she won another silver medal. But this one was accomplished with Pandelela Rinong. To finish off 2010, this pair of divers won another silver medal at the Commonwealth Games. In 2011, Pandelela Rinong and Mun Yee would team up again for the 10 meter synchronized final in the FINA Diving Championships.
Most recently at the FINA diving World Series in Mexico, the pair got a fifth place finish in the 10 meter synchronized event. But they finished in third overall in what is called this four leg series. They got a total of 78 points becoming the first local pairs to do this. They will both compete in the upcoming 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The photo of Mun Yee smiling is from http://www.timeoutkl.com. I have also added two more photos of her and these are from http://fakarepain.com/. And as a special bonus for my readers, I have included a photo of Leong Mun Yee. But instead of being in her swimsuit, she is in a gorgeous blue dress. That one is from https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/2174578/all.
Mun Yee would once again take part in the Commonwealth Games in 2014. She would take part in the 10 meter synchronized diving event with her partner Cheong Jun Hoong.
