Vivian Kong has won the Doha Épée Grand Prix.

She was one of the 128 entrants in the event, competing in a knock-out format.  Vivian won a closely contested final to take the title.  The win means she retains her #1 global ranking.

Vivian turned vegan in 2017 after an injury.

“I wanted to recover faster. I kept Googling what foods to eat to recover quickly” she says.
