To forward Mimi’s figure skating career, Kate purchased the old rink in Imperial World Samrong mall so her daughter could practice any time she wanted. The rink had been dormant since 2001, the last time hockey nearly died in Bangkok. Khun Kate installed new ice, boards and vastly improved the lighting. Bangkok’s hockey players, who can smell ice a mile away, soon heard rumours that Samrong was back in business.

 

Thai-World Hockey League commissioner Scott Whitcomb tracked Khun Kate down and entered negotiations for hockey to take to the ice when Mimi was not practicing. Soon, it was game back on.

 

The TWHL has been a mainstay at Samrong arena every Sunday for the past two years. The Flying Farangs Ice Hockey club holds its Wednesday scrimmage there every Wednesday. Samrong arena is a sacred place. And Mimi, 10, is now a budding figure skating star.

 

She has attended competitions in many countries including Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and China. She has managed to accumulate more than 30 gold, 20 silver, and 30 bronze medals in international competition. Mimi was offered a contract by Disney on Ice after taking first prize when it held a competition in Bangkok. Khun Kate and Mimi quickly turned it down.

 

Mimi has only one goal on her mind: competing in the Olympic Games. She practices diligently three to our hours every day with her Chinese coach An Long He. And thanks to her mom’s dedication and support, her dream of winning an Olympic medal could soon become reality.

 

Thanks to Khun Kate, hockey is flourishing in Bangkok.
