Career

2016

At the 2016 Summer Olympics, Doo competed in the team event alongside with Lee Ho Ching and Tie Ya Na. They lost to Germany in the quarterfinals.

2021

In the 2020 Summer Olympics, Doo reached the quarter-finals in the women's single event where she lost to top seed Chen Meng after leading 2–0. In one of the more interesting wrinkles of the tournament, play was stopped mid-game in Doo's match against Chen so that Doo could cover a logo on her pants with duct tape (due to Olympic sponsorship rules). Doo, along with her teammates Lee Ho Ching and Minnie Soo Wai Yam, won bronze in the women's team event, defeating Germany with 3–1 in the bronze medal match.

Doo won one of the Hong Kong Junior Sports Stars Awards in 2014. As a member of the Hong Kong National Table Tennis Team (mixed doubles), she was also a two-time winner of the Hong Kong Sports Star Awards for Team Event, both in 2015 and 2017.
