ANJA CHONG only came to national prominence on the final day of KL2017.

The 23-year-old won two gold on Wednesday — 1,000m and 3,000m relay.

Anja (pronounced Anya) effort helped take Malaysia’s final tally to 145 and she had won the 500m race a day earlier.

The sudden thrust into the spotlight has set all eyes on her, especially plenty of men wanting to know if she is single.

No surprise there considering she’s gorgeous. talented and loves speed.

Sorry to break it to you, peeps.

She’s happily in a relationship.

“He (mystery man) came to support me during my final event. I really appreciated that,” she said.

Right now, however, her main goal is qualifying for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

“I need all the support I can get. Every Malaysian

who encourages the team is important.”

For those who still want some lowdown on Anja, her favourite colour is pink and she adores Roald Dahl novels.

She trains in South Korea and started as a figure skater at age nine. But she loved racing on ice so much, she switched to speed skating.
