Shooting

OVERVIEW

Shooting.png Singapore Sports School Shooting Academy trains in a world-class 10m shooting range on the school’s premises. The 30-bay range, built to host the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore in 2010, is fully equipped with an electronic target scoring system. This state-of-the-art shooting facility paved the way for the setting up of the Shooting Academy in 2012.

As shooting is not available as a Co-Curricular Activity in primary schools, the Shooting Academy conducts the Learn-To-Shoot programme annually to identify individuals that may have potential in the sport. Within three years of setting up the Academy, the Sports School produced its first world champion in the 10m Air Rifle event. Martina Lindsay P Veloso, then 14, beat the Beijing 2008 Olympic gold medallist Kateřina Emmons to clinch the 2014 ISSF World Cup title.

Several student-athletes from the Shooting Academy have also achieved success in international competitions such as the World Junior and Southeast Asian Championships. This is testament of the success of the Learn-To-Shoot programme in identifying student-athletes with potential. The Academy also adopts a Long-Term Athlete Development approach in coaching, integrating sport science services and world-class coaching to deliver a premier youth shooting programme.

Irwan Shoots To Another National Record
National Records (Shooting)

Posted: 13 October 2017

National Mens 10m Air Rifle Record Holder Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman.jpg
Singapore Sports School post-secondary student-athlete Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman broke the Men's 10m Air Rifle National Record with a score of 627.7 points at the Singapore Cup!

Irwan bettered the former national record score of 624.4 points which was set by himself previously during the ISSF World Cup Munich in May 2017.

In a span of five months, the 18-year-old shooter has broken the national record twice, what has attributed to his success?

“The experience garnered from the recent Southeast Asian Games attributed to the success I had. I learned a lot from my coach and sport psychologist on how to manage competition stress! Being able to translate that experience into the recent competition allowed me to break the national record,” he said.

The recent Southeast Asian Games Men's 10m Air Rifle silver medallist went into the Singapore Cup with an open mind, not allowing his success at the SEA games define him. After being clear of the national record near the 53rd shot, Irwan composed himself with the experience in which he has learned during the Games and just focused on executing his process.

Winning gold medals is often seen as the main objective of every competition, and that was very much the case for Adele Tan Qian Xiu and Muhammad Izzat Junaidie when they competed at the Singapore Shooting Competition from 4 to 6 August.

While both accomplished their primary objective of finishing on top of the podium, it was their decision on what to do with their $500 prize money which showed that gold was not just the colour of their medals, but the colour of their hearts as well.

Their decision to donate the money to the Moral Home for the Aged Sick, the Shooting Academy’s adopted charity, was even more impressive considering this was Izzat’s first time receiving a cash prize from a competition, while this was Adele’s second time, having already donated once in January.

Despite their generous gestures, both student-athletes were keen to play down their actions. 

“It is a nice thought to have the money, but it was important to set a good example for my juniors. 

“Besides, Sports School frequently subsides our overseas trips, and we do have some savings from our Singapore Olympic Foundation - Peter Lim Scholarship, so this is just our way of paying it forward,” Adele said.

Izzat too identified with Adele’s sentiments, and was looking forward to see the money being put to good use. 

“Most of the residents are wheelchair bound, so hopefully we will be able to charter a wheelchair friendly bus and bring them out for an excursion,” Izzat said. 

Yet their donations would not have been possible had the duo not performed in their respective events at SAFRA Yishun.

In fact, their scores of 249.2 and 243.3 in the 10m Air Rifle Women Individual and 10m Air Rifle Men Individual events would have seen them secure gold and silver respectively at the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games, a fact not lost on the duo.

“We were both upset at not making the SEA Games squad, so this tournament was a good morale boost for us to remind us of our capabilities. 

“Us not making the squad probably fueled our performances at the competition, so at least we were able to win the money which will help put smiles on the beneficiaries’ faces,” Izzat said.

Sports School Wins 17 Golds In Kuala Lumpur 
Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games 

Posted: 15 September 2017



The number 17 has multiple significances in today’s context.

Apart from being the number of syllables in a haiku, 17 was also the number most frequently worn by local footballer Fandi Ahmad.

However, that number will now carry extra meaning in Singapore Sports School after our 104 past and present student-athletes combined to win 17 golds and account for almost 30 percent of Team Singapore’s gold medals at the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games.

In addition, the 17 golds, 21 silvers, and 20 bronze medals, alongside the five SEA Games and six National records set is also Sports School’s best ever “away” showing at the biennial Games.

Among the SEA Games champions were synchronised swimmer Debbie Soh Li Fei and wakeboarder Sasha Siew Hoon Christian, who won Singapore’s first and 50th gold medals thanks to after their exploits in the Solo Free Routine and Women's Slalom respectively.
The Games was also a season for winning streaks, with Amanda Lim Xiang Qi defending her Women’s 50m Freestyle crown to remain unbeaten in the event since 2009.

Among the other highlights were the Men’s Bowling Tem comprising Basil Dill Ng Jui Chang, Darren Ong Wei Siong, Keith Saw Hui-Xun, Muhammad Jaris Goh Ali Akbar Goh and Timothy Theodore Tham Fu Rong who clinched Singapore’s first Team gold in 22 years, while Gregory Raymund Foo Yongen, Joshua Shou Minqing and Marc Ong Chong Ching won Singapore’s first gold medal in golf since 1989.

Alumni Win Big Prizes
Singapore Sports Awards

Posted: 15 August 2017


Asians commonly subscribe to the adage that good things come in pairs, and that was certainly true for Singapore Sports School after two of its alumni were honoured at the 2017 Singapore Sports Awards.

Sheik Farhan Sheik Alau’ddin strode up the Ritz Carlton Millenia stage on 8 August to collect his first ever Sportsboy of the Year award before fellow alumni New Hui Fen followed suit when she was named Sportswoman of the Year.

Hui Fen beat three others including fellow alumna Nurul Suhaila Mohamed Saiful to become Sports School’s second Sportswoman of the Year after a successful season saw her win silver at the World Singles Bowling Championships and named Rookie of the Year by the Professional Women’s Bowling Tour.

Farhan meanwhile, was honoured after he became a world champion for the second time when he clinched the Class J title at the 2016 World Pencak Silat Championship.

The Singapore Sports Awards were introduced by the Singapore National Olympic Council in 1968 to recognise the finest achievements of our athletes and has evolved to become Singapore’s most highly coveted honours for sporting achievements.

Sports School Ready For KL
Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games Send-Off Ceremony

Posted: 15 August 2017


It all began in 2005 when Singapore Sports School sent seven student-athletes to the Southeast Asian Games in Manila. Six editions on and the number has increased by nearly 15 fold.

On 10 August 2017, Sports School organised its seventh send-off ceremony to recognise and cheer on its past and present student-athletes heading to the Kuala Lumpur 2017 SEA Games. Student-athletes and alumni will be competing in 17 out of 38 sports contested at the biennial Games.

The evening event was attended by Chairman of Sports School’s Board of Directors, Ms Yeoh Chee Yan, who was guest-of-honour, Chef de Mission Mr Milan Kwee and his deputies Mr Mark Chay and Mr Lee Wung Yew. Each SEA Games-bound athlete received a board comprising all Sports School athletes heading to the 29th edition in Kuala Lumpur and the school mascot ROAR.

Sports School sent off its largest number of representatives at this year’s SEA Games. Over 100 past and present student-athletes have been given the nod from the Singapore National Olympic Council, with at least 40% of them making their debut at the Games. Amongst the 104 Team Sports School’s competitors, 45 of them are current secondary and post-secondary student-athletes. Pistol coach Nigel Lim Swee Hon from the Shooting Academy will also be part of the Team Singapore contingent.

In the last edition of the Games on homeground, Sports School athletes contributed a creditable 38 per cent of the gold medals won by Team Singapore. They garnered 32 golds, 19 silvers and 19 bronzes.

Competition began for the footballers and netballers on 14 August. Sports School wishes our student-athletes and alumni the very best as they do Singapore proud at the Games which officially begin on 19 August. We’re Ready for KL and will be backing all of you up!

Half A Decade Of Success
National School Games (Shooting)

Koh Aik Beng
Head, Cluster 4
Senior General Manager, Shooting Academy

Posted: 15 August 2017


It is often said that it is more difficult staying at the top then getting there and Singapore Sports School’s Shooting Academy once again proved its calibre after it clinched the National School Games 10m Air Rifle Women’s “C” Division Individual and Team crowns for the fifth year running.

This time, it was Callie Siah Yong Xin who emulated Cecilia Ng, Fernel Tan Qian Ni, Ho Xiu Yi and Catherine Shi to continue Sports School’s proud tradition of winning both events.

“I wanted to carry on what my seniors had done, so that I could continue to set an example for my juniors in years to come,” Callie said. 

She teamed up with Secondary 1 student-athletes Edlyn Nadra Mohammed Sophian, Irna Qistina Noorazlin and Lee Jing Le to beat the Nanyang Girls High quartet by 2.6 points, before she defeated Jing Le in the Individual component.

Callie’s battle with Jing Le was especially thrilling after she had trailed her teammate before she clawed back to finish with a score of 244.6 to narrowly beat Jing Le by 0.3 points.

“Having been part of the 2016 team, I was therefore able to remember what my coach Lim Chea Rong said to better prepare myself, especially in terms of how to remain calm,” Callie said. 

Our 10m Air Pistol Men’s team also finished the tournament from 24 to 28 July with a Team gold medal to give Sports School a combined haul of 3 golds, and 3 silvers from the Championships.

Sports School Goes To Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games: List Of Confirmed Athletes

Posted: 14 July 2017

In slightly over a month’s time, at least 40 past and present Singapore Sports School student-athletes will be fighting for national glory in our neighbouring country. Thirty-nine student-athletes and alumni, including one staff, have received confirmation of their participation at the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games which officially opens on 19 August.


At the previous edition of the SEA Games on homeground in 2015, Sports School’s past and present student-athletes contributed a creditable 38% of the gold medal haul to Team Singapore’s tally. Prominent athletes such as kegler Jazreel Tan Shi Hua (Women’s Masters), swimmer Amanda Lim Xiang Qi (Women’s 50m Freestyle) and waterskier Sasha Siew Hoon Christian (Women’s Slalom and Wakeboard) will be fighting to defend their titles at the SEA Games.

Meanwhile, 12 of the confirmed 39 Sports School athletes will be making their debut at the regional Games. Nine current secondary and post-secondary student-athletes, which includes World Cadet Foil bronze medallist Amita Berthier and Men’s 10m Air Rifle National Record holder Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman, seek to benefit from the experience of competing at a major game and fly Singapore’s flag high.

Several sports such as Badminton, Football and Track and Field have yet to announce their final list of athletes competing at the 29th edition of the biennial Games.

Scholarship Brings Forth Opportunities
2017 Singapore Olympic Federation-Peter Lim Scholarship

Posted: 15 June 2017


In 2010, Singapore Olympic Federation started a scholarship with a donation from philanthropist Peter Lim to aid young athletes in fulfilling their sport aspirations. The SOF-Peter Lim Scholarship helps budding athletes chase their dreams by overcoming the financial obstacle.

On 30 May 2017, 22 Singapore Sports School secondary student-athletes were awarded the scholarship. They were amongst 335 youth athletes in the seventh batch of scholarship recipients from the Primary, Secondary, Tertiary and High Performance (Under 18) categories. Eleven post-secondary International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme student-athletes also received the scholarship.

Beijing 2008 Olympic gold medallist and special guest Abhinav Bindra inspired scholars and those in attendance with a story of his journey to the coveted Men’s 10m Air Rifle title in 2008. His story spoke of resilience, of passion and of an undying desire to attain his goal despite the odds. Mr Bindra overcame disbelief from others, tried unconventional training methods to clinch India’s first Olympic gold medal in Shooting.

The High Performance scholarship recipients, presented to athletes under 18 years old, included synchronised swimmers Debbie Soh Li Fei, Gwyneth Goh Xiao Hui (IBDP Year 6), Miya Yong Hsing (IBDP Year 5), shooter Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman (DSLM Year 2) and tennis player Muhammad Shaheed Alam Meqsud Alam (DSLM Year 3). All four student-athletes will be making an appearance at the Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games in two months’ time.

“This is my second year being awarded the Singapore Olympic Foundation-Peter Lim Scholarship High Performance award and it’s definitely contributed to my sport development. The Scholarship indirectly increases my opportunities for overseas exposure which has resulted in a huge boost in my sport career. The financial burden on my family is very much reduced, especially when I travel frequently for competitions. I am also able to purchase suitable equipment and invest in proper nutrition for my development,” said Shaheed, a post-secondary student-athlete in Sports School’s customised Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management.

Irwan, who currently holds the Men’s 10m Air Rifle National Record at 624.4 points, has also benefited from the monetary boost. He has travelled to Germany for training camps on two occasions and trained under Mr Abhinav’s former coach, Heinz Reinkemeier.

Mr Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) and Second Minister for Defence was at the award ceremony as guest of honour.

Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman 15jan15 By Alvin Toh HI-RES 724.jpgMohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman is the new men’s national 10m air rifle record holder after he shot 624.4 points at the International Shooting Sport Federation World Cup on 19 May.

The 17-year-old’s score was good enough to see him finish 36th out of 129 competitors and break Sean Tay’s 2014 record of 624.1.

His achievement, coupled with Martina Lindsay P Veloso’s status as the national women’s 10m air rifle holder, means both the current national men’s and women’s record holders were graduates of Sports School’s Learn to Shoot Programme.

Irwan hopes his latest accomplishment in Munich, Germany will serve as a confidence booster as he looks to meet the cut as one of Singapore’s two male 10m air rifle representatives at the upcoming Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games in August.

The post-secondary student-athlete was not the only member of the Shooting Academy who had a tournament to remember, as Secondary 4 student-athlete Muhammad Izzat Junaidie shot 620.7 to record a new personal best.


Adele's Shot To Gold
2017 Southeast Asian Shooting Association Championship

Posted: 15 May 2017


Singapore Sports School student-athletes and alumni shone at the 41st Southeast Asian Shooting Association Championship, winning a dozen medals – 4 golds, 6 silvers and 2 bronzes – at the annual regional competition from 3 to 12 May 2017.

Post-secondary student-athlete Adele Tan Qian Xiu was one of Sports School’s top performers at the Kuala Lumpur event, bagging 2 gold medals in the individual and team Women’s 10m Air Rifle events.

“Winning both individual and team gold medals in the senior category is testament to the training plan Coach Lim Chea Rong has planned for me. The overseas training opportunity in Dortmund, Germany also contributed to my performance as we benefited from gun maintenance and pellet customisation services,” said Adele.

“This competition was regarded as a trial for the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games. Knowing that I had to do well, I put an unreasonable amount of pressure on myself, which turned out to have a negative effect on my performance. As such, I did not do well in the qualifiers. Coach Chea Rong and I realised it immediately after the qualifiers and we tried to rectify the situation. With her guidance and mental coaching, I was able to regain my calmness and recollect my thoughts for the final.”

The Year 6 shooter on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme maintained her composure in the final to tip Olympian Jasmine Ser to the individual title. Adele triumphed in the Final shootout with 248.8 points to Jasmine’s 246.0 points.

“The most crucial factor behind winning the Individual title in a demanding final was staying strong mentally. Coach Chea Rong and I have been working extremely closely together at each training and competition session to strengthen myself mentally. This year’s SEASA Final was a platform where Coach and I successfully performed at every shot. I hope to be able to maintain such form at the upcoming ISSF World Cup in Munich and Gabala, and Junior World Championships in Suhl.”

Adele also teamed up with alumnus Martina Lindsay P Veloso and Jasmine to shoot to a Team gold. Martina followed up the 10m Air Rifle Team gold with two more medals in Team events – Women’s 50m Rifle 3 Positions Team gold and 50m Rifle Prone Team silver.

In the Women’s Junior 10m Air Rifle individual event, IBDP Year 5’s Ho Xiu Yi and Secondary 3’s Fernel Tan Qian Ni finished 2nd and 3rd. However, the bronze medal went to Rosli Nur Izazi of Malaysia who came in 6th, due to the Championship rule that no country can have more than one medallist per event.

The male rifle shooters also rose to the occasion, contributing a Team gold and Team silver in the senior and junior 10m category respectively. Not to be outdone, Sports School’s junior pistol shooters also posted top 3 finishes, while pistol coach Nigel Lim Swee Hon won 1 silver and 2 bronzes.

Xiu Yi Shoots Down Record
National Inter-School Shooting Championships

Koh Aik Beng
Senior General Manager, Shooting Academy


Posted: 15 May 2017

Ho Xiu Yi will be the first to admit 2017 has not gone the way she wanted it to.

Not only was her national record broken, but she has also struggled for form in the past few months as she failed to qualify for the upcoming Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games.

But Xiu Yi put that aside to finish the recent National Inter-School Shooting Championships with 2 gold medals and set two new “A” Division records in the process.

“While I am pleased about the medals and the records, I am happier with my performance as I managed to shoot 10s from my sighting to my last shot which is one of my best performances in my shooting career,” she said. 

Xiu Yi’s strong finish at SAFRA Yishun enabled her to shoot a championship record score of 417.5 in the Air Rifle “A” Division Girls Individual event category and finish ahead of teammate Adele Tan Qian Xiu.

Furthermore, her combined scores with fellow International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme student-athletes Adele and Lenice Tan Yue Tong were also enough to give Sports School the Air Rifle “A” Division Girls Team crown and record.

“After missing out on qualification for the SEA Games, I just told myself to treat the National School Games as an opportunity for a fresh start,” Xiu Yi said.

Similarly, the quartet of Emmanuel Chan En Yue, Marcus Ngeh Wei Ming, Muhammad Izzat Junaidie and Ryan Dayne Phang emulated their seniors to rewrite the Air Rifle “B” Division Boys Team record and win the event. 

Izzat also clinched the Air Rifle “B” Division Boys Individual crown to match Xiu Yi’s two-gold haul from the championships.

Our Shooting Academy eventually finished the tournament from 10 to 21 April with 5 golds, 7 silvers and 2 bronzes.

SHOOTING Martina Lindsay P Veloso 29sep14 Alvin Toh HI-RES 28969.jpg
A World Cup title, and silver medals at the Junior World Cup and the Youth Olympic Games are just some of the accolades Martina Lindsay P Veloso has achieved in her fledgling career.

The Sports School alumna can now add the title of national women’s 10m air rifle record holder to her sporting achievements after she shot 421.0 at the internal selection trials by Singapore Shooting Association at SAFRA Yishun.

The 17-year-old’s score was enough to beat current post-secondary student-athlete Ho Xiu Yi’s record of 420.3 which was set last year.

The selection trials were the first phase of air rifle selection for the upcoming Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games.

Next up in Martina’s calendar are the South-east Asia Shooting Championships, the ISSF World Cup and the ISSF Junior World Championships.


Air Rifle Shooters Make Mark At University Invitationals
2017 NUS Invitational Shoot, 2017 NTU Invitational Shoot

Posted: 15 March 2017


Singapore Sports School student-athletes bagged 4 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze medals at the 2017 National University of Singapore Invitational Shoot from 18 to 21 February 2017.

The Shooting Academy showed dominance in the 10m Air Rifle, winning three of four of the Individual medals in the Open and School categories. It was a 1-2 finish in the Men’s Open division: Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman, a post-secondary Year 1 student-athlete in the Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management programme), taking the top position on the podium and Secondary 4’s Muhammad Izzat Junaidie in second. International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Year 1 student-athlete Ho Xiu Yi triumphed in the Women’s Open division, while IBDP Year 2 student-athlete took the bronze medal. The third Individual gold medal came from Secondary 2’s Muhammad Fathir Ahmad in the School category.

Fathir collected his second medal – a silver – in the Men’s School 10m Air Rifle Team event with teammates Marcus Ngeh Wei Ming and Zachary Aidan Tan. The trio of Callie Siah Yong Xin, Mok Rui Ping and Nicole Tan Yong Bing won the Team gold in the Women’s School category.

Pistol coach Nigel Lim Swee Hon also enjoyed victory in the Men’s Open 10m Air Pistol Individual event.

The Shooting Academy’s success in the Air Rifle events earned Sports School the Overall Rifle Winner in the School Category.

Less than two weeks later, Sports School’s rifle shooters displayed their prowess yet again at the NTU Invitational Shoot from 1 to 5 March. They swept all medals in the Men’s and Women’s Open 10m Air Rifle categories, and also bagged gold medals in the Men’s and Women’s “C” Category of the same weapon. Altogether, they took home 5 gold, 3 silver and 1 bronze medals at the NTU meet.

Marksmen Of Meyton
2017 Meyton Cup Tirol

Nigel Lim
Coach/Range Executive, Shooting Academy

Posted: 15 February 2017


It is apparent Ho Xiu Yi has grown in the past two years. From the shooter who struggled to complete her shots in a competition, Xiu Yi has since blossomed to be a national record holder.

The 16-year-old is more aggressive in her shooting and also reduced the time required per shot. These are achievements she credits her coach, Song Haiping, for.

“Coach Song always gives me tips to improve my technique, drilling into me the importance of being a bold shooter and to trust the work we do in the shooting range,” Xiu Yi said. 

Those changes in her training routine have started to bear fruit, as proven by her 1 gold and 1 silver medal at the 10m Air Rifle Women's Junior events in the 2017 Meyton Cup Tirol from 18 to 24 January.

What was even more impressive was the small variance in her qualifying scores of 419.2 and 419.5, a whisker away from her national record of 420.3.

“This is one of my best shoots, and I am pleased with the results particularly since this was my first tournament shooting at such a high pace and our work in training is starting to pay off.

“My coaches at Sports School have always emphasised the importance of treating each training session like a competition. It is only by adopting such a mindset that we will be used to the pressure and stress levels associated with competitions,” she said.

In fact, the hard work put in by the Shooting Academy coaches was further seen when Xiu Yi’s teammate Adele Tan Qian Xiu mirrored Xiu Yi’s medal haul in the same event to give Sports School a 1-2 finish on both days of competition.

Our student-athletes can be proud of their medal haul of 4 golds, 4 silvers and 1 bronze from the competition, especially when considering the standard of their opponents such as home favourite and Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games competitor Rebecca Kock.

Overall, this competition was a good experience for our student-athletes as they develop and prepare for the upcoming Southeast Asian Games selection and their other competitions.

Sports School Gives Back
Values in Action (Local)

Posted: 15 December 2016


As a Singapore Sports School student-athlete, high intensity physical activity is part of their daily routine. In pursuit of their sport dream, our student-athletes undergo training at least 10 times a week. 

On 19 November 2016, three of Sports School’s academies were reminded that there are others who are unable to enjoy the heart-pumping excitement that they sometimes take for granted. As part of their Values in Action initiative, the Badminton and Table Tennis Academies organised a Healthy Lifestyle Day for 20 children from KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital’s asthma club – B.E.A.R.S (Breathe Easy And Restful Sleep). The children, ranging 5 to 15 years old, were introduced to the fundamentals of each sport and had an opportunity to try their hand at them. The hope is that the introduction to various forms of fun activities will be a catalyst for the children to engage in light activity daily due to the health benefits of exercise.

Student-athletes from the Shooting Academy continued their partnership with Moral Home of the Aged Sick, bringing an afternoon of joy and fun to the elderly residents. Student-athletes and staff serenaded their audience with their voices and a guitar accompaniment, and put their skills in chess and checkers to the test by interacting with the elderly. The evening concluded with our student-athletes wheeling some of the residents to Bedok Road Food Centre for dinner.

Two days later, Sports School’s bowlers joined in the spirit of giving when they visited MINDS Woodlands Gardens School and SUNDAC Bedok South. Bowling Academy student-athletes and staff distributed lunch packs and goodie bags to approximately 350 beneficiaries at their annual Values in Action project. In addition to interacting with the beneficiaries, our bowlers had the opportunity teach and participate in a dance with those from MINDS Woodlands.

Emmanuel Chan En Yue and Ong Yong Qing shot their way to a Team gold in the Air Rifle Men Junior event. Emmanuel also won a bronze medal for himself.

The pistol girls, Hew Yun Ting and Stacy Ho Ting Ting contributed to a Team silver, and Terrence Ng Shu Hao wrapped up with a Team bronze in the pistol men junior event.

Most 14-year-olds will feel nervous shooting alongside a World Cup winner and the current national record-holder but Nurul Syafiqa Nassaruddin was not about to let that happen. Instead, the Secondary 2 student-athlete chose to rise to the challenge.

She more than held her own as she teamed up with post-secondary student-athlete Ho Xiu Yi and alumna Martina Lindsay Veloso to clinch the silver medal – behind Russia and ahead of India – in the 10m Air Rifle Women’s Team event at the International Shooting Sport Federation Junior World Cup.

“I knew the calibre of my teammates, and that made me more determined to shoot well and not let them down. In fact, Martina and Xiu Yi were very encouraging, and kept reminding me to relax and do my best,” she said.

Not only did Syafiqa shoot a score of 414.1 to record the 5th best qualifying mark among the finalists in Azerbaijan, she was also the youngest shooter to make the finals of the U21 competition; Russia’s Daria Boldinova was the second youngest competitor, at 16 years old.

“As much as I am overjoyed with my silver medal, I am more thankful for the support of my teammates especially since it was my first major overseas competition,” Syafiqa said.

Singapore finished 10th in the medal standings after Martina added a bronze in the 10m Air Rifle Women’s Individual event, and student-athletes Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman and Muhammad Izzat Junaidie, with Sng Jian Hui, clinched the silver medal in the 10m Air Rifle Men’s Team event; India was first and Japan finished third.

This gave Singapore a final tally of 2 silvers and 1 bronze after the competition from 16 to 23 September 2016.

Xiu Yi Wins 2 Golds In Incheon
East Asia Youth Air Gun Competition

Senior Coach, Shooting Academy

Posted: 15 September 2016


Ho Xiu Yi may have missed qualifying for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by a hair's breadth, but the 16-year-old is not letting disappointment get the better of her.

The Secondary 4 student-athlete reminded everyone of her potential to represent Singapore at Tokyo 2020 when she won two gold medals at the East Asia Youth Air Gun Competition in Incheon, South Korea, from 23 to 26 August 2016.

“At this pace, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games is definitely a realistic target. I will be four years older and more experienced,” said Xiu Yi.

Xiu Yi triumphed in the 10m Air Rifle Women's Individual event and teamed up with post-secondary student-athlete Adele Tan Qian Xiu and Sports School alumna Catherine Shi to win the 10m Air Rifle Women Team gold.

“While I am extremely happy to win, I am even more pleased to be able to share this victory with my teammates and celebrate together,” said Xiu Yi.

Adele also won a silver medal in the 10m Air Rifle Women's Individual event to give Sports School a 1-2 finish.

From the Korean folk song, “Arirang”, is this line: “Just as there are many stars in the clear sky, there are also many dreams in our heart.” Indeed, Sports School has many reasons to sing, “Arirang”, as our past and present student-athletes glittered with 2 golds, 2 silvers and 1 bronze from the competition in Incheon, and continue to follow their dreams.

Posted: 16 August 2016   


Singapore Sports School female Shooters reigned supreme after they swept the individual and team titles on offer in the National School Games Girls “C” Division for the second consecutive year.

In fact, such is their dominance in the Girls “C” Division that they have won every team title in the 10m Air Pistol and 10m Air Rifle categories since 2013.

This year, the 10m Air Rifle Girls Team went one step further as the quartet of Callie Siah Yong Xin, Cecilia Ng (Huang Si Si), Fernel Tan Qian Ni and Nurul Syafiqa Nassaruddin set a new “C” Division Girls Team record of 1,232.5 points at Safra Yishun.

Syafiqa, who rewrote the individual record during qualifying, was all smiles after the event.

“I am overjoyed with the team, and even more grateful that the hard work of my team mates has paid off,” Syafiqa said.

Teammate Cecilia, who also won the Individual 10m Air Rifle crown, gave credit to her coach, Ms Lim Chea Rong.
“Coach Chea Rong kept telling us to focus on sighting our guns, and to treat the finals like a training exercise which helped us calm down,” she said. 

The three day competition from 26 to 29 July also saw Emmanuel Chan En Yue and Hew Yun Ting secure the Individual 10m Air Rifle Boys and Individual 10m Air Pistol Girls titles respectively.

Hui Fen 005.jpg

Past and present student-athletes and one staff from Singapore Sports School strode up the stage 66 times to receive the Singapore Sports Awards on 23 June 2016 – the majority of who had won gold medals at the 28th Southeast Asian Games on home soil in 2015.

New Hui Fen, Kimberly Lim Wei Yan and Shelby Lian Koh were the big winners at Raffles City Convention Centre after they took home the top prizes in the Team of the Year category.

Bowling alumnus Hui Fen won her second consecutive Team of the Year (Event) award after partnering Shayna Ng and Cherie Tan to win silver in the Bowling Trios Team event at the 2015 World Women’s Championships. She also won the Meritorious Awards (Individual) and Meritorious Awards (Event) prizes as a member of the Women’s Trios team at the Asian Bowling Championship and Women’s Team at the World Women’s Championship, together with fellow alumni Daphne Tan Shi Jing and Jazreel Tan Shi Hua.

Meanwhile, Kimberly and Shelby, along with the National Netball Squad, were recognised in the Team of the Year (Team Sport) category after winning the gold medal in the netball tournament at the 28th Sea Games. Like Hui Fen, this is also Kimberly’s second straight year winning the award.

Additionally, Shooting Coach and Range Executive Nigel Lim Swee Hon was presented a Meritorious Award for winning the 50m Free Pistol Men’s Team gold medal in shooting at the 28th Sea Games.

Xiu Yi Owns National Mark

Singapore Youth Olympic Festival

SHOOTING Ho Xiu Yi 02jun14 Alvin Toh LO-RES 448.jpg
Ho Xiu Yi created a stir at SAFRA Yishun Indoor Air Weapons Range on 26 June 2016 when she shot 420.3 points to claim the Women’s 10m Air Rifle National Record. 

The Secondary 4 student-athlete was taking part in the 2016 Singapore Youth Olympic Festival when she achieved this feat, which also helped her to comfortably win the Youth 17 gold medal. 

In February 2016, Xiu Yi missed qualifying for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games by a mere 0.4 points when she shot 417.6 points in the Asia Olympic Qualifying Competition. She came back stronger, recording a Personal Best of 419.0 points at the 2016 Nanyang Technological University Invitational Shoot in March. Three months later, Xiu Yi set a new PB – and rewrote the National Record of 419.8 points set by Olympian Jasmine Ser in February 2016.

“Shooting a new Personal Best is a good indication that I’m moving in the right direction in my sport development. Breaking the National Record is a bonus and motivation for me to continue towards representing Singapore at the Olympic Games one day,” said Xiu Yi.

Despite several good performances recently, Xiu Yi is not resting on her laurels.

“My short-term goal is to be able to perform not only at local competitions, but at international meets as well. To get there, I have plans to work on my pre- and mid-competition routines, to achieve consistency in my mental state at competitions so as to perform my best. I was going through a rough patch in my sport a few weeks prior to the SYOF. However, that made me stronger. Through the low point in my sport, I learnt how to cope with bad shots and to persevere during tough times.

“These small successes which I have achieved in the recent months doesn’t give me an excuse to train less than before. There will come a point in the future when the same effort I’m putting in now will not be enough for further improvement. I may have to wait to see the fruits of my labour, but I look forward to the day when the hard work I put in now comes to fruition.”

Altogether, Singapore Sports School’s Shooting Academy bagged 7 gold, 6 silver and 7 bronze medals at the SYOF. In the 12 events that were offered at the competition, Sports School’s shooters enjoyed clean sweeps in the 10m Air Rifle Youth 15 Men’s and Women’s events.

They are Amita Marie Nicolette Berthier, Debbie Soh Li Fei, Ethan Poh Shao Feng and Ho Xiu Yi. 

This is the third year in a row that Debbie and Ethan have received the HPU18 Award, as well as Amita’s second consecutive award. This is also Xiu Yi’s third award from the Foundation, and first in the HPU18 category, having won the Secondary School category award in 2015 and 2014.

Fencer Amita first came to prominence after winning the 2013 H2020 East Interzone Foil Minime (Girls U15) and the 2013 Challenge Wratislavia (Girls U13). Her biggest accolade so far has been her two gold medals at the 2016 Asian Junior and Cadet Fencing Championships at Manama, Bahrain, where she triumphed in the Women's Cadet Foil Individual and Team events.

Shooter Xiu Yi’s achievements include a second-place finish in the Women’s 10m Air Rifle Team event at the 2015 ISSF Junior Cup, as well as a silver in the Women’s Junior 10m Air Rifle Individual event at the 2015 Asian Shooting Championships.

Ethan, meanwhile, has participated in the 2015 South East Asian Junior and Cadet Table Tennis Championships where he won 2 silvers in the Junior Boys Doubles and Junior Boys Team events. He also won a silver at the 2014 Southeast Asian Table Tennis Championships Men’s Team event as well as a bronze in the Doubles event.

Air rifle shooters from Singapore Sports School were all smiles after they won five of the six air rifle events they participated at the National School Games Shooting Championship from 15 to 22 April 2016.

In addition to the “A” Division 10m Air Rifle Girls Individual title, Sports School clinched the 10m Air Rifle “B” Division crowns for Girls Individual, Girls Team, Boys Individual and Boys Team events at Safra Yishun.

“I am very proud that we managed to win the title again and continue the legacy as it proves that our hard work has really paid off,” said Ho Xiu Yi, “B” Division Girls Captain.

Indeed, Sports School has been especially dominant in the Girls “B” Division, sweeping every team and individual air rifle title since 2014.

This dominance has now continued into the “A” Division, with Adele Tan Qian Xiu winning Sports School’s first “A” Division 10m Air Rifle Girls Individual crown. In fact, her qualifying score of 416.5 is also a new “A” Division National Schools record. 

“Coach Lim Chea Rong said she never doubted my ability, and this gave me the confidence and aggression to want to win the title. Yet despite this win, I must remain grounded and continue working hard,” said Adele.

Sports School also set four new records in the “B” Division for 10m Air Rifle Girls Individual, 10m Air Rifle Boys Individual, 10m Air Rifle Girls Team and 10m Air Rifle Boys Team.

Twenty-four past and present student-athletes were inducted into the Roll of Honour (Sports) and 43 received the Outstanding Sports Achievement Award during Singapore Sports School’s 12th Awards Night on 28 January 2016.

To be inducted into the Roll of Honour (Sports), a student-athlete has to win a Southeast Asian Games gold medal or a medal at the Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, World Championship or World Cup, or have competed at the Olympic Games. There were 17 first-time Sea Games gold medallists and seven medallists at a world championship or world cup event in 2015, including two world champions – pencak silat exponent Sheik Farhan Sheik Alau’ddin and sailor Denise Lim Ke Xin.

Three student-athletes were inducted into the Roll of Honour (Academics) – fencer Brian Cheong Sze Kai for scoring five distinctions at the 2015 GCE “O” Level Examinations, and netballer Deborah Wong Weng Ee and pole vaulter Brian Ho Ren Jie, both of whom scored 43 points out of a maximum 45 at the November 2015 sitting of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Year 6 examinations.

There were 22 staff who received the 5-years’ Long Service Award and eight recognised for their 10 years of service.

Principal, Mr Tan Teck Hock, gave a comprehensive report of the Sports School’s achievements and key activities, which included shooter Martina Lindsay P Veloso being named Sportsgirl of the Year, top academic achievements by alumni in the various polytechnics and Nanyang Technological University, and table tennis player Isabelle Li Siyun receiving the PSC Scholarship.

Other noteworthy activities that Mr Tan mentioned in his report were Project Champions Way, the Sports School’s private fund-raiser that garnered more than $120,000 for Club Rainbow (Singapore) and the Singapore Disability Sports Council, and the conversion and renovation of rooms into sport-focused facilities such as The Scrum, a rugby-themed room used primarily for Supervised Self-Study Time; Starting Block, an athletics-themed sports library; and The Arena, the dining hall for Sport Champions.

Singapore National Olympic Council President, Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, who is also Minister for Social and Family Development, was the guest-of-honour. In his speech, Mr Tan said for a country that has not gone to war in recent years, training for high performance sport is one way of building resilience.
