OVERVIEW

TrackAndField.png
Singapore Sports School’s Track and Field Academy strives to create a premier environment for excellence in youth-athlete development where student-athletes can benefit from world-class facilities and coaching accompanied by ample competition opportunities.

The Academy develops training programmes based on Long-Term Athlete Development model to support each student-athlete. The LTAD model provides broad-based training to maximise the sporting potential of the student-athlete by avoiding early specialisation. This is achieved through focusing on training via the multi-events programme when they enter the Sports School in Secondary 1. The multi-event training approach enables student-athletes to achieve highest technical level upon maturity and helps to reduce the risk of burnout and injuries.

Track and Field Academy student-athletes had the opportunity to hone their skills from the numerous overseas training camps and competition opportunities arranged by the Academy. In addition, Sports School coaches raised their competencies through attending coaching conferences and courses overseas and locally.

Sports School Improves 2016 Medal Haul
International Children’s Games

Ong Kaifen
Head, Cluster 1

Posted: 14 July 2017


16 Singapore Sports School student-athletes took part in the 51st International Children’s Games in Kaunas, Lithuania from 4 to 9 July and returned with 5 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 2 bronze medals along with 13 new personal best times.  This return of 11 medals also means the Class of 2017 have bettered our 2016 medal haul of 4 golds, 2 silvers and 3 bronzes.

Our swimmers once again made waves as they contributed 3 of Singapore’s 5 gold medals. Sports School’s up and coming young talent Clydi Chan secured victories in the Girls 100m and 200m Freestyle to add onto Luke Tan Yu Yang’s Boys 400m Freestyle gold medal.

“It has been my absolute pride and honour to be able to represent Singapore and Sports School in this International Children’s Games,” Clydi said.

Sprinter Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En emulated Clydi’s 2 gold medal feat after he led the Boys 100m race from start to finish. He later clinched his second gold medal of the Games after he anchored the Boys 4x100m relay team to victory.

“This trip was a very memorable one for me, especially in the 4x100m Final when I had to chase down our Chinese Taipei rivals to overtake the anchor runner before the finishing line. I knew my teammates had given their all, and I could not let them down,” Reuben said.

Clydi was also among the silver medallists after she finished second in the Girls 400m Freestyle to claim a new personal best and Sports School swimming record. Luke added 2 silvers to his medal haul through his exploits in the Boys 200m Freestyle as well as in the Boys 4x100m Freestyle.

Ervina Lim Qianhui and Mitchell Ang Li rounded up Sports School’s medallists after they won bronze medals in the Girls 400m Freestyle and Boys 200m Individual Medley respectively.

The 2017 International Children’s Games has been a fruitful one for our student-athletes as they were able to experience the pressures of a major international tournament. They have certainly exhibited many of Sports School’s values during this trip. Not only did they showcase Excellence and Resilience to adapt to the 24-hour travel, jetlag to give their best in back to back competitions, the student-athletes also displayed Respect and Integrity when they demonstrated sportsmanship and respect to their opponents from different cultures. Furthermore, our student-athletes also exhibited Responsibility by ensuring they complete their homework during their pockets of free time.

Our student-athletes thoroughly enjoyed their experience in Kaunas, and have certainly lived up to this year’s Games’ theme of “We are here to change history”.

The International Children’s Games objective is to encourage friendship through sporting events, hereby contributing to mutual understanding, tolerance and respect in the spirit of the various Olympic values. A total of 90 cities and approximately 1, 500 athletes between 12 and 15 years participate in this prestigious event every year.

Cherlin Raises Under 18 Bar
Hong Kong Inter-City Athletics Championships

Pedro Edmundo Soto Acuna
Head Coach, Track and Field Academy

Posted: 14 July 2017


Cherlin Sia Jia Yi had feared the worst when she learnt she had torn one of her quadriceps in April this year. After all, the pole vaulter was eager to make up for lost time having already missed much of the 2015 season due to a back injury.

While her latest injury setback had not kept her on the sidelines for an extended period of time, Cherlin was still required to adapt her training routine to ensure the muscle was not overworked.

Yet her desire to battle through the pain barrier paid dividends after she finished fourth and set a new National Under 18 Women’s Pole Vault record at the Hong Kong Inter-City Athletics Championships on 25 June.

The 16-year-old cleared a distance of 3.35m on her third attempt to eclipse Carmel Teo’s 2012 mark of 3.32m.

“My injury definitely weighed on my mind. But my General Manager Miss Jenny Lim has been very encouraging and kept reminding me to remain focused,” Cherlin said.

Up next for the Secondary 4 student-athlete will be the ASEAN Schools Games where she will hope to break the National U21 Record of 3.45m.

“This record reminds me I am on track for my target to qualify for the 2019 SEA Games. However, I am still young and have many more competitions ahead so I must remain humble and continue working hard,” she said.

Cherlin was not the only student-athlete who had a tournament to remember after three of her peers returned home with medals.

Chong Wei Guan clinched the Men’s Junior 110m Hurdles crown, while Kang Jun Jie and Marcel Tan Yann Guang secured silvers in the Men’s Junior Discus and Men’s Junior 200m respectively. Alumna Dipna Lim Prasad also had a good championship after she clinched gold medals in the Women's 400m and 400m Hurdles.

Overall, this was a meaningful competition for our student-athletes to participate in, especially considering the high standards of their competitors which served as a challenging and enriching learning experience.

Enn-other Milestone In Singapore Athletics
2017 Asian Athletics Championships

Posted: 14 July 2017

038.jpg
Wendy Enn became the second Singaporean woman to run under 12s in the century sprint on 6 July 2017. The Singapore Sports School alumnus clocked 11.98s at the 22nd Asian Athletics Championships Women’s 100m Heats in Odisha, India to become Singapore’s second fastest woman.

Wendy managed to qualify for the semi-finals, but a finishing time of 12.14s failed to earn her a spot in the final.

Less than three months ago, Wendy gave a standout performance at the 2017 Singapore Open Track and Field Championships in April, setting a new Women’s National Triple Jump Record of 12.05m. She is currently the only Singaporean female to cross the 12m barrier.


LAWA Brings In A Dozen Medals
2017 Little Athletics Western Athletics (MSSM-SSSC-LAWA)

Posted: 14 July 2017


A three-way partnership between the athletics associations of Western Australia, Malaysia and Singapore has seen youth athletes from the three countries pitting their skills and abilities against their peers twice a year. The Little Athletics Western Australia meet is held in Perth in the first quarter of the year and once more in Southeast Asia in the second half of the year.


Eleven Singapore Sports School student-athletes were in Pahang, Malaysia for the 25th edition of the LAWA (MSSM-SSSC-LAWA) from 8 to 9 July 2017 and they returned with a dozen medals – 1 gold, 5 silvers and 6 bronzes. The competition, which attracts top athletes 15 years and under, provides a good platform for Track and Field student-athletes to gauge their standard against other athletes in their age-group.

Team Sports School put up a creditable performance over the two-day meet, with 10 out of the 11 student-athletes returning with at least one medal in hand. Secondary 2 student-athlete Tyeisha Rene Misson Khoo was Sports School’s single gold medallist, clinching the Girls Under 14 4x100m gold medal alongside three other sprinters from the Combined Schools team.

The Little Athletics Western Athletics (MSSM-SSSC-LAWA) is held in Malaysia and Singapore on alternate years.

Wendy's Great Leap Into Record Books
2017 Singapore Open Track and Field Championships

Posted: 15 May 2017

038.JPG

Singapore Sports School’s past and present student-athletes made it an exciting two days at the 79th Singapore Open Track and Field Championships, pitting their speed, strength and skills against competitors in the international meet.

Over 27 and 28 April 2017, student-athletes and alumni garnered 2 gold, 4 silver and 4 bronze medals. Both gold medals were won by Singapore’s sprint queen Veronica Shanti Pereira in the 100m and 200m events.

The alumnus flew Singapore’s flag high from Day 1 of the competition. In the Women’s 200m, Shanti stopped the clock at 23.87s, a mere 0.07s ahead of Malaysia’s Zaidatul Husni Zulkifli, to grab 1st place.

She followed up her strong performance with another gold medal in the Women’s 100m on 28 April, as well as a silver in the Women’s 4x100m Relay. Sports School alumni Dipna Lim Prasad and Wendy Enn made it a 1-2-3 finish in the century sprint, crossing the line in 12.25s and 12.34s respectively.

Wendy also had a fruitful outing at the Singapore Open, taking home three medals – 2 silvers and 1 bronze – and a new National Record all within a day of competition.

Having trained in the Triple Jump for just over a year, Wendy hopped, stepped and jumped into the record books, setting a new Women’s National Record of 12.05m and becoming the first Singaporean woman to cross the 12m mark. Her distance, achieved on the fifth jump of the Women’s Final, broke the previous record of 11.94m set by Lynette Lim two years prior. Wendy finished second of two competitors in the Triple Jump.

Shortly after completing her jumps, Wendy went on to clinch the 100m bronze medal and a silver in the 4x100m Relay with Shanti, Dipna and post-secondary student-athlete Nur Izlyn Zaini.

Reuben's Awesome Foursome
National Inter-Schools Track and Field Championships

Jenny Lim
Head, Cluster 3
Senior General Manager, Track and Field Academy

Posted: 15 May 2017


It was déjà vu for Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En after he repeated his 2016 heroics to win 4 gold medals at the 2017 Schools National Track and Field Championships.

Despite competing in the “B” Division for the first time, Reuben was not fazed by his older opponents as he clinched gold in the 100m, 200m, 4x100 and 4x400m at the Championships from 6 to 28 April.

“My double four gold haul is definitely a boost to my confidence and I hope to carry this form into the upcoming International Children’s Games in Kaunas.

“My idol is Olympic gold medallist and 400m world record holder Wayde Van Niekerk from South Africa. He has proved that you do not need to be from America or Jamaica to excel in sprinting, and this has fuelled my conviction that anything is possible as long as you work hard,” Reuben said.

As if winning four gold medals to become Sports School’s most bemedalled student-athlete at the Meet was not impressive enough, Reuben also recorded a personal best in the 200m sprint.

Moreover, Reuben’s achievement means he has emulated the double four gold haul achieved by fellow student-athlete Diane Hilary Pragasam (2016, 2015). Diane narrowly missed out on a three-peat after she won three gold medals and a silver at this year’s edition.

Although Reuben did not break any championship records, three of his seniors managed to do so. 

Tia Louise Rozario got the ball rolling after she rewrote the “A” Division Girls Championship and Schools Long Jump record, before Celeste Goh Jia Rui followed suit to break the “A” Division Girls 400m record twice, in the heats and in the finals. Cherlin Sia Jia Yi added one more in the Pole Vault Open Division category.

Tia and Celeste were also part of the “A” Division girls team which clinched 8 medals and won Sports School’s first ever “A” Division relay medals en route to finishing 4th in the “A” Division Girls standings – a remarkable feat considering they could only draw from a pool of five student-athletes.

Altogether, Sports School’s 77 student-athletes brought home 25 golds, 14 silvers and 13 bronze medals along with 3 competition records.

Our “C” Division Boys and “B” Division Girls also finished 2nd in their division.

Sports School Scores In DSLM
2017 Republic Polytechnic Graduation Ceremony

Posted: 15 May 2017


Six years into the collaboration with Republic Polytechnic to offer the customised Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management at Singapore Sports School’s very own campus sees yet another cohort of post-secondary student-athletes graduate from the programme.

Golfer Leonard Tee Zhi Xian emerged top of the Class of 2017, earning himself the Viva Social Enterprise Gold Medal Award. He also received the Diploma with Merit – awarded to the top 10 percent academic performers in the programme, along with the Diploma Plus Certificate in International Business.

“It absolutely feels amazing to graduate top of my cohort, with a Diploma Gold Medal and Merit awards, including another certificate in International Business. To be able to walk up on stage on my graduation and receive those awards was a very special moment for me,” said Leonard.

“Turn back the clock to the time I was in Secondary 1, many would have doubted my capability of achieving these feats academically. I was playful, immature and an extremely unfocused individual. From being placed in the top class after enrolling in Singapore Sports School, my academic grades took a hit and I tumbled into mediocrity.

“A short break after completing my secondary school education gave me time to reflect on the four years that had gone so swiftly. It occurred to me that I had wasted enough time in secondary school and it was time for me to make a change in my life.

“Right from the get-go, before I commenced the DSLM programme in 2014, I had a goal to be the top student in my cohort throughout Republic Polytechnic. Thus, I stuck to this goal of mine and chased it daily. I kept my eyes focused on the prize through the daily grind of training and attending lessons. Ultimately, it has everything to do with how badly you want something and working hard to achieve it.

“The customised diploma programme at Sports School helped me tremendously in achieving my sport and academic goals. The flexibility of the programme allowed me to take Leaves of Absence to participate in competitions, while classes were scheduled and arranged such that I could attend all of my golf trainings. Without this programme, I would never have dreamed of topping my entire cohort, as well as winning the title of Overall HSBC Youth Golf Challenge Champion in the 2014/2015 Season.

“In addition, we were assigned mentors that took care of our needs, offering authentic and personal advice in the areas of sport, academic and personal growth.

“I have learnt many valuable lessons during my seven years at Singapore Sports School which have helped shape me into the individual I am today. The astronomical level of care from all functions of the school – sport, academic and boarding – provides the support necessary to excel as a student-athlete and individual. Trusting the Sports School system has been definitely been rewarding for me.”

Three other former Sports School student-athletes Bryan Tan Yu Ru (Football), Ninna Tan Ai (Badminton) and Veronica Shanti Pereira (Track and Field) were amongst the six graduands who graduated from the DSLM programme with Merit. They received their awards from Mr Nicholas Gerard Conceicao, Executive Director, Outward Bound Singapore, at the Graduation Ceremony on 2 May 2017.

Hurdler Kerstin Ong Jing Rong completed her polytechnic education with a Diploma Plus Certificate in International Business in addition to the DSLM.

Sports School introduced the customised DSLM for elite youth athletes conducted at the Champions Way campus and saw our first cohort graduate in 2014. Since then, our student-athletes have topped their cohorts which includes students from RP’s main campus. Top students in previous years include Isabelle Li Siyun (2014, Special Award Recipient)), Pan Shi Yu (2015) and Javier Tan Jun Juan (2016).


Marcell Breaks 11-Second Barrier
2017 Philippines National Open Invitational Track and Field Championships

Posted: 13 April 2017


Marcell Tan Yann Guang was all smiles after he returned from the Philippines National Open Invitational Track and Field Championships.
 
On top of his gold medals in the 4x100m Mixed Relay event and the 100m sprint, Marcell also ran a new personal best of 10.9s in the 100m.
 
“This is one of my best performances, and I want to go under 11 seconds in every race I take part in, such as the upcoming Singapore Open, and I am aware that breaking the 11-second mark is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of reaching my potential. I am more motivated to train even harder and achieve greater things ahead, such as making the senior national team,” Marcell said.
 
Marcell was not the only one to clinch a gold medal at the meet from 28 March to 3 April 2017, as Celeste Goh Jia Rui secured a gold in the 400m Hurdles with a new seasonal best time of 65.96s.
 
Overall, this was definitely a competition worth participating in as our student-athletes were given a good opportunity to sharpen their competition readiness against some of the top junior athletes in the region.

Tia Louise Rozario jan16 Alvin Toh LO-RES 1922.jpg
Tia Louise Rozario maintained her unbeaten streak in the Girls Long Jump category at the National Schools Track and Field Championships after she rewrote the “A” Division Girls Long Jump Record en route to winning the event.

She first broke the record at the Bishan Stadium with a 5.52m jump on her fourth attempt to surpass Lynette Lim’s 2015 record of 5.43m, before she extended it further with her 6th jump of 5.66m.

On top of being the Long Jump record holder across all three girls’ divisions in the National School Games, Tia’s win also means she has now won four straight golds in the event, with her first being her “C” Division title in 2014.

While Tia’s pedigree in the long jump is no secret, the post-secondary student-athlete is also a very proficient hurdler.

"I am really thankful that everything worked out well that day and I could not be more pleased with the records. As of now, I am just taking it day by day and focusing on my next race in the hurdles, and hopefully be able to compete to the best of my abilities," Tia said.

She will have a chance to win her fifth straight National Schools hurdles gold when she races in the “A” Division Girls Hurdles event on 18 April.

Even if they do not qualify for the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games, Chong Wei Guan and Tia Louise Rozario will definitely be in the reckoning for future editions of the biennial games after the post-secondary student-athletes returned with Singapore’s only gold medals from the 2017 South-east Asia Youth Athletics Championships in Philippines.

Wei Guan led the way with a gold medal in the Boys 110m Hurdles, while Tia leapt 5.85m to successfully defend her Girls Long Jump title.

“It is very motivating for me as the effort I have put in is paying off and I definitely have to thank Coach Pedro for this. This gold also gives me the motivation to work harder for the upcoming international competitions such as May’s Asian Youth Athletics Championships,” Wei Guan said.

They were not the only Sports School student-athletes to medal at the two-day meet on 27 and 28 March, as Arfan Azhar and Shawn Jong Tze Chean clinched bronze medals in the Triple Jump and 400m Hurdles respectively.

Singapore Sports School’s “C” Division boys reminded their rivals of their potential at the upcoming National Schools Track and Field Championships after they secured the “C” Division Boys title at the 2017 SPH Schools Relay Championships.
 
They won 1 gold, 2 silvers and a bronze medal to accumulate 28 points and edge Raffles Institution by 3 points.
Their win at the Bishan Stadium was even sweeter considering Raffles had pipped them to the “C” Division Boys crown in 2016.
 
Our other teams also put up strong performances on 25 and 26 March 2017, as our “C” Division Girls and “B” Division Boys both finished 2nd in their respective divisions.
 
In fact, credit must be given to our “B” Division 4x800m Boys team who performed above expectation when they clocked 8:32.66s, missing Jurong Secondary School’s 1987 record by a mere 0.4s.
 
Our student-athletes ended the 2-day meet with 8 golds, 4 silvers and 1 bronze to help Sports School finish 2nd in the overall standings.

Singapore Sports School’s Track and Field Academy hauled a total of 34 medals at the 43rd National Under 18 and Under 20 Athletics Championships. The 34 medals – in the form of 18 golds, 10 silvers and 6 bronzes – were contributed by Sports School’s secondary and post-secondary student-athletes.

It was a clean sweep in the Boys U15 100m with Sports School sprinters Jeft Tay Qi Wen, Muhammad Adhwa’ Buhardeen and Lim Rui crossing the finishing line in first, second and third respectively. Jeft clinched another gold medal in the 100m Hurdles.

Mini Meet For Young Champs
2017 SSP-SAA Primary Schools Track and Field Invitational Meet

Posted: 15 March 2017




The Track and Field Academy organised the 9th Singapore Sports School-Singapore Athletics Association (SSP-SAA) Primary Schools Track and Field Invitational Meet at our very own backyard on 18 February 2017.

The latest edition of the meet saw participation from 784 Primary 4 to 6 pupils representing 30 schools. The collaborative effort of our student-athletes, coaches, academy mentors, ever-ready parent volunteers and qualified officials from Singapore Athletics led to a successful meet.

This annual Meet was more than just a sport competition for the young athletes. The full-day event was customised to ensure it was age-appropriate for our primary school participants. Distances and events were suited for young athletes, while child-appropriate equipment and specifications were in place for each event. Music played in the background created a carnival-like atmosphere and a generous supply of 100PLUS and MILO, provided by Sports School’s corporate sponsors, for those who needed a quick boost of energy or hydration contributed to the day’s excitement.

The friendly and fun competition provided an additional opportunity for primary school pupils to gauge their standard amongst their peers in a less stressful environment prior to the National Primary Schools Championships.

In our attempt to promote character development, the Meet also featured the Sportsmanship Award. The Sportsmanship Award is awarded to a pupil from each school. Each school nominates an athlete who consistently demonstrates good sportsmanship behaviour such as Respect, Responsibility, Discipline, Reliability, Integrity, Kindness, Moral Courage and Good Judgement. A MILO goodie bag, sponsored by Nestle Singapore, was presented to each nominee. Their exemplary behaviour was shared with all present and we hope that these young athletes continue to exemplify sportsmanship behaviour and uphold the Olympic values of friendship, excellence and integrity as they become role models to their team mates and juniors.

Guest of Honour Ho Mun Cheong, President, Singapore Athletics Association presented the prizes and goodie bags to the respective winners.

The 9th SSP-SAA Primary Schools Track and Field Invitational Meet would not have been successful without the support from:
  • Guest-of-honour, Ho Mun Cheong, President, Singapore Athletics Association for taking time off to grace the event.
  • Singapore Athletics for co-hosting the event.
  • Singapore Sports School sponsors 100PLUS, and MILO-Nestle Singapore for the provision of hydration and energy beverages for the event.
  • Parent volunteers, student-athletes and alumni of the Track and Field Academy, academy coaches and mentors.
  • Principal, Tan Teck Hock; Deputy Director, Sports, Chan Wai Lin; Assistant  Director, Sports Dr Lee Mei Kay for their assistance and invaluable support.
  • Boarding Staff for their assistance.
  • Colleagues from participating schools and all who have in one way or another contributed to the success of the 9th SSP-SAA Primary Schools Track and Field Invitational Meet.


Lim Rui Shines For Sports School In Multi-Events
2017 Little Athletics Western Australia Perth State Combined Event Championships

Posted: 15 February 2017


Twenty-three student-athletes from Singapore Sports School’s Track and Field Academy competed at the 2017 Little Athletics Western Australia Perth State Combined Event Championships from 4 to 5 February 2017. Selected Secondary 2 and 3 student-athletes stood bravely against their rivals to achieve notable results at their debut in this multi-event meet.

Secondary 2’s Lim Rui was Sports School’s top performer having attained a podium finish in the Under 13 category, in a field of 35 competitors. The final result which gave him the bronze medal was a combination of scores from five events – 100m, 800m, 90m Hurdles, Long Jump and Discus. Lim Rui finished top in his category for the 100m, setting a new Personal Best time of 12.67s.

Five other student-athletes – Muhammad Adhwa Buhardeen, Yeo Ben Shin (Boys U14), Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En (Boys U15), Rachel Cheong and Zann Oh Shuyu (Girls U15) – also performed well to feature in the Top 10 overall standings in their age-groups. 

The multi-event format of the competition is well-suited to our long-term athlete development programme, to avoid early specialisation by youth athletes. The LAWA Combined Event meet provides quality competition and an additional opportunity for international exposure to our student-athletes in the area of multi events.


The Ability To Adapt
Track and Field Training Camp to Taiwan

It may have been a workshop for coaches, but that did not stop Tia Louise Rozario and her fellow Singapore Sports School jumpers from gaining insights from Feng Shu Yong, the course lecturer and Head Coach of the Chinese National Track and Field Team.

“It was a truly beneficial and eye-opening experience to learn from Coach Feng. I was especially impressed with how he compared the Asian and Western styles of jumping adopted by different athletes,” Tia said.

The workshop was one of the activities she went through as part of the Track and Field Academy’s training tour to Taiwan from 13 to 19 December 2016.

While only the jumpers attended the workshop, there were still plenty of learning opportunities for the rest of the student-athletes as they trained alongside the elite youth athletes from Taoyuan Senior High School.

Not only were they exposed to the different training regimes adopted by their Taiwanese peers, our student-athletes were to contend with the colder climate, as hurdler Chong Wei Guan would attest to.

“I was reminded of the need to be adaptable, since there are so many things out of our control such as the weather or travel conditions,” Wei Guan said.

The importance of remaining flexible was something echoed by teammate Tia.

“The weather can change drastically within a day, so it is always important to have the right equipment and more importantly, to avoid getting negatively affected when in unfamiliar conditions,” Tia said.

In total, 14 Sports School student-athletes attended the training camp, and we believe they have gained new insights and motivation in preparation for the 2017 season.

It is known that sportspeople who want to improve must test themselves against quality opposition to better gauge their own standards.

With this in mind, Singapore Sports School’s Netball and Track and Field Academies travelled to Sekolah Sukan Tunku Mahkota Ismail in Johor, Malaysia for a training camp from 12 to 14 November 2016. 

Objectives of the camp included stretching the potential of our student-athletes as well as to gain new insights and motivation in preparation for the 2017 season.

The chance to test themselves against international opponents was especially pertinent for the Netball Academy.

Our netballers benefited from competing against their taller opponents who forced them to jump higher and fight harder for possession of the ball.

The trip also provided our student-athletes the opportunity to adapt to a different living and training environment from what they are used to in Singapore. 

The need to adapt was especially apparent amongst the Secondary 1 Track and Field student-athletes who were participating in their first training camp. 

It was a steep learning curve for most of them as they realised the need to adapt quickly if they wanted to perform optimally during their overseas competitions.


U14 Boys Are Champions
2016 Bukit Jalil Sports School International Combined Events Championships

Posted: 15 December 2016


Track and Field Academy’s Under 14 Boys team has gone from strength to strength this year. It started in February at the annual SPH Relay Championships, when our boys executed flawless baton exchanges to win the 4x100m Final in a Championship Record time. At the National Schools Track and Field Championships in April, they then romped home to a convincing victory in the 4x100m and 4x400m finals, establishing Division Records in both events as well. A few months later in August, the boys repeated their feat at the Thailand Sports School Games, claiming gold medals in the two relays and clocking new Personal Best times.

Yet while many are preparing to enjoy the Christmas festivities, Singapore Sports School’s Track and Field Academy student-athletes are still geared up for a hectic holiday training and competition schedule.

At the 7th Bukit Jalil Sports School International Combined Events Championships (BJSS ICE), our U14 boys gave stunning performances once again to finish Overall U14 Boys Champion, ahead of seven Malaysian state and sport school teams. The combined Hexathlon scores of Brandon Norton, Chin Yi Yang, Mohamed Haziq Mohamed Yazli and Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En totaled 16,450 points, putting them at the top of the leaderboard and redeeming themselves from a 4th-place finish in 2015.

Sixteen student-athletes were selected to participate in the meet from 25 to 28 November 2016 – four boys and girls each, from both the U13 and U14 age-groups, and 13 of them managed a top 10-finish in their respective categories. The BJSS ICE provides good exposure to an elite youth level multi-event competition for our U13 and U14 student-athletes. Our student-athletes rose to the occasion and exceeded expectations, coming in Overall Runner-Up in the U13 Boys and Girls and U14 Girls.

Tyeisha Rene Misson Khoo (Secondary 1) and Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En (Secondary 2) were Singapore Sports School’s best performers with a 3rd-place finish in the Girls U13 and Boys U14 categories respectively.

When Sport Champions Champion For Others
Values In Action

Posted: 14 October 2016

Singapore Sports School student-athletes are expected to be Sport Champions, Champions for Sports as well as Champions for Others as they seek to give back to society and help the less-fortunate. Such activities take place all-year round and last week, the Football and Track and Field Academies carried out some meaningful commitments.

Climb For Rainbows

Colin Ng
Executive, Strategic Communications


Climbing stairs is an activity that we do and not think much about, pretty much like brushing teeth and washing face. But there are children with chronic medical conditions who are unable to carry out these daily deeds.

It was therefore heartening to see 54 student-athletes from the Track and Field Academy participating in the "Climb for Rainbows" event at Suntec City on 8 October 2016 to raise funds and awareness for Club Rainbow (Singapore).


Greening Green

Gail Chia
Executive, Strategic Communications


More tree saplings were planted on 12 October 2016 to further green the Woodlands Park Connector behind the Singapore Sports School campus.

Student-athletes from the Football Academy care for the environment by carrying out regular maintenance of trees and picking litter at the Park Connector. This partnership with National Parks Board started in 2015.

Singapore Sports School swimmers and table tennis players scored big at the 19th Thailand Sports School Games in Chonburi from 25 July to 5 August 2016.

The Swimming Academy was crowned Boys’ and Girls’ Overall Champions – thanks to a haul of 20 golds, 7 silvers and 11 bronzes.

Mitchell Ang Li, Owen Teo Bo En, Sarah Chue Wen Xin and Vanessa Ong were our top swimmers as they turned in 2 gold medals each. Sarah also finished the Games with two Meet Records.

Meanwhile, Andy Wong Yan Kai secured 3 gold medals to become the Table Tennis Academy’s top performer, although it was his female counterparts who won the Girls’ Overall Champion Trophy after claiming gold in five events.

In track and field, our student-athletes competed in the U14, U16 and U18 divisions. Altogether, they won 12 golds, 9 silvers and 7 bronzes.

In football, our team reached the quarter-finals of the U16 tournament, but was prevented from advancing when it took a 0-3 defeat from Bangkok.

Sports School sent 94 student-athletes to participate in the football, swimming, table tennis and track and field competitions and they returned with 40 golds, 18 silvers and 21 bronzes.

Brandon Norton won two gold medals to emerge as Singapore Sports School’s top performer at the Singapore Schools Sports Council-Western Australia Little Athletics-Majlis Sukan Sekolah Malaysia International Little Athletics Championship (SSSC-WALA-MSSM) International Little Athletics Championship on 14 and 15 July.

The Secondary 2 student-athlete clinched the 800m and 1500m U14 Boys crowns despite having to race in back to back events.

“Considering my two races were so close to each other, I am really happy with my two-gold performance,” Brandon said.

In fact, the 14-year-old was not the only Sports School student-athlete to win gold at CHIJ Saint Nicholas Girls’ Secondary School.

Teammates Mohamed Zulkhairi Putera Mohamed Zali and Arfan Azhar, competing in the U15 Boys category, took home the 800m and the Triple Jump titles respectively.

All in all, the Sports School was represented by 15 student-athletes who returned with a medal haul of 4 golds, 3 silvers and 7 bronzes.

Sports School Represented by 20 At ICG
International Children’s Games

Ong Kaifen
Acting Head, Cluster 1

Posted: 16 August 2016   


The 50th Edition of the International Children’s Games (ICG) this year was held in Taipei from 11th to 16th July 2016. The ICG’s objective is to encourage friendship through sporting events, thereby contributing to mutual understanding, tolerance, and respect in the spirit of the Olympics values. Approximately 83 cities and 2000 athletes between 12 and 15 years of age, participate in this prestigious event this year. 

Singapore Sports School, representing the City of Singapore sent a team of 20 athletes (10 from Swimming and 6 from Track & Field and 4 from Table Tennis) and we returned home with a medal haul of 4 gold medals, 2 silver medals and 3 bronze medals. At the same time, 11 personal best were set during this ICG. 

4 gold medals came from our undisputed team captain, Maximillian Ang Wei, in the swimming events. Over two days, he displayed a champion’s mindset despite back-to-back events, and touched the wall first in the 50m Breaststroke, 100m Breaststroke, 200m Breaststroke and 200m Individual Medley, earning 4 Personal Bests in his events at the same time. 

2 silver medals came from our female swimmers in the 4x100m Freestyle Relay (made up of Sarah Chue Wen Xin, Jasmine Tan Hui Fen, Vanessa Ong and Ervina Lim Qianhui) as well as Jabez Mason Law Yong Jun in the table tennis individual event. 

3 Bronze medals were contributed by Ervina in the 200m and 400m freestyle, as well as our male swimmers (made up of Maximillian, Mitchell Ang Li, Luke Chua Li Rong and Luke Tan Yu Yang) in the Boys 4x100m Freestyle Relay. 

More detailed results can be accessed from the following website (under individual sports):  
http://www.icg-newtaipeicity2016.com/gamesresults.php?results=2 

This Taipei ICG trip had been a fruitful one as the student-athletes got to go through a major game’s experience, and many student-athletes returned with PBs. The student-athletes have been very adaptable during the trip, and have certainly lived up to the theme of this year’s ICG “Be Strong, be Friends”. Student-athletes commented that this ICG was an enjoyable experience where they made many new friends, learnt a lot about the cultures of the cities that took part in this ICG and not forgetting the many t- shirts, jackets & gifts that they had exchanged with participants from other cities.

Celebrating Champions
2016 Singapore Sports Awards

Posted: 15 July 2016  

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.

Head Coach, Track and Field Academy

Posted: 15 July 2016 


Fifteen student-athletes from the Track and Field Academy competed in the Hong Kong Inter-City Athletics Championships from 25 to 26 June 2016 with Jay Choo Zhan Xian emerging as Singapore Sports School’s top performer.

The post-secondary student-athlete bagged a silver medal in the 110m Hurdles (Junior Category) before teaming up with Marcell Tan Yann Guang, Mohammad Irfan Qabeel Md Daud and Muhammad Nur Haqim Abu Mansor to win the bronze medal in the 4x100m Relay (Open Category). 

Jenny Lim, Senior General Manager of the Track and Field Academy, was naturally pleased with the result. “This is a good result considering they are a relatively new quartet. I believe they have the potential to go far,” she said.

Altogether, our student-athletes returned with 2 silver and 4 bronze medals and 4 personal best times. Even though they were competing against older athletes and facing a strong head wind, our student-athletes remained focused, whilst showing determination and composure.

Posted: 15 June 2016


Four student-athletes from Singapore Sports School received the prestigious High Performance U18 category award of the Singapore Olympic Foundation-Peter Lim Scholarship at ITE College East on 20 May 2016. 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.

Altogether, 36 student-athletes from the Sports School received scholarships, of which 16 are first-time recipients. Gymnasts Lincoln Forest Liqht Man and Kaeson Lim Junyi, and bowler Nu’man Syahmi Yusri received their fourth award in the Secondary School category since 2013.

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.

Debbie too has built a strong resume thanks to her 3 gold medals at the Singapore 2015 Southeast Asian Games and participation at the 2013 and 2015 FINA World Championships.

Diane And Reuben Shine Brightest
2016 National Schools Track And Field Championships

Posted: 13 May 2016


Diane Hilary Pragasam and Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En won 4 golds each to emerge as Singapore Sports School’s top performers at the National Schools Track and Field Championships from 8 to 29 April 2016.

Diane, running in the Girls “B” Division, won the 200m, 400m, and 4x100m and 4x400m relays,  and equalled her 4-gold haul in 2015.
Reuben was Sports School’s other standout performer as he emulated Diane’s 4-gold feat. 

Not only did he secure the Boys “C” Division 100m and 200m titles, the 13-year-old was also part of the quartet which broke the 4x400m and 4x100m relays Championship Records.

Sports School later secured its third record of the 2016 championships when the “B” Division Boys rewrote the 4x400m relay Championship Record.

All in all, the Track and Field Academy ended the 12-day event with 25 golds, 14 silvers and 11 bronzes as well as 66 Personal Bests performances.

Swimmer Today, Underwater Hockey Player Tomorrow
19th CMAS Underwater Hockey World Championships

Colin Ng
Executive, Strategic Communications

Posted: 15 April 2016


Sheena Soh often gets puzzled looks from her former Singapore Sports School classmates when she says she now plays underwater hockey.

While some confused expressions may be stemming from her unique sporting choice, the raised eyebrows are largely because Sheena is more often associated with another activity she competed in her teens – swimming.

Indeed, Sheena, who was part of the Sports School’s pioneer batch, swam at various international swimming meets before circumstances led to her playing underwater hockey while studying in Australia.

Moreover, she excelled in her new sport enough to represent Singapore at the 2016 CMAS Underwater Hockey World Championships in South Africa from 25 March to 2 April where they finished 11th out of 13 teams. 

Yet Sheena’s story is not an uncommon one as there are other alumni who have made strides in a sport different from the one they practiced while studying at the Sports School.

Two others who have mirrored Sheena are Teh May Yong and Larry Ng Choon Yeow.

May Yong was a member of Sports School’s Track and Field Academy before she picked up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. She, too, has achieved considerable success in her new sport as evidenced by her silver medal at the World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championships in June 2015.

Larry is another alumnus who has represented Singapore in a different sport. The former badminton player has now shifted his focus to weightlifting where he recently represented Singapore in the 2015 Commonwealth Weightlifting Championships in December 2015.



Tia Jumps Furthest In Perth
WALA Perth State Meet

Head, Sports Cluster 3
Senior General Manager, Track and Field Academy

Posted: 15 April 2016


Twenty-eight student-athletes from the Track and Field Academy competed in the WALA Perth State Meet from 19 to 20 March 2016 when Tia Louise Rozario emerged as Singapore Sports School’s top performer.

The Secondary 4 student-athlete hit gold in both the 100m Hurdles and the Long Jump. Even more impressive was that the 15-year-old was competing against athletes who are up to two years older than her.

“Racing against older hurdlers pushed me as I knew I needed to raise my standard to match them,” said Tia.

The experience gained will definitely serve her well as she prepares for the South East Asian Youth Athletics Championships in Thailand in April. 

“WALA was a good learning experience and I will continue working harder so I can jump better,” she said.

Another standout performer was Chong Wei Guan. He won the 110m Hurdles in 13.88s. He also clinched the silver medal in the 100m dash after clocking 11.34s. Both times are new personal bests for the 15-year-old.

All in all, the Sports School won 4 golds and 3 silvers, with 85 per cent of our student-athletes achieving a personal best performance in at least one event.

Jenny Lim
Head, Cluster 3
Senior General Manager, Track and Field Academy

Posted: 15 March 2016

Singapore Sports School emerged Overall Schools Champion for the 12th year since our first participation in the SPH Relays in 2004. The Track and Field Academy also claimed the Tay Cheng Koon Memorial Trophy for the 4th time following its introduction in 2008.

The annual SPH Relays provides Sports School’s Track and Field Academy an opportunity to expose junior student-athletes to a fun competition setting and allows coaches to experiment with different runner combinations in the relays ahead of the National Schools Championships.

The Track and Field Academy medalled in 13 of 16 teams fielded across the “A”, “B” and “C” Divisions at this year’s meet on 5 and 6 March 2016, concluding the meet with a total 9 gold and 4 silver medals and 1 Meet Record. The "B" Division Boys and Girls also won the Divisional titles of their categories.

The “C” Division Boys 4x100m Relay team – comprising Lucas Lim Yi Liang, Mas Al-Haq Salikin, Mohamed Haziq Mohamed Yazli and Reuben Rainer Lee Siong En – executed a flawless baton exchange to cross the line in 45.35s, breaking the previous record of 45.40s set by Hwa Chong Institution in 2008. This feat earned the team the Tay Cheng Koon Memorial Trophy, which is presented to the relay team that breaks a record, or the team that breaks a record by the largest margin. Mr Tay Cheng Koon was a former sport editor of The Straits Times.

Aside from the winning performances on the track, Sports School student-athletes also gave a good display of character and sportsmanship. The team showed tremendous support for one another, even giving their medals to their teammate who had run in the heats but not in the final. Badminton player and Chairman, Council of School Captains, Darryl Sim Jing Quan, also stepped in as the fourth member of the Boys “A” Division 4x100m and 4x400m relays to allow his track and field teammates a chance to compete in the competition. The two-day competition saw many heartwarming moments as student-athletes, staff and parents came together to cheer on each other as one team.

The 8th SSP-SA Primary Schools Track And Field Invitational Meet on 13 February 2016 was a day full of fun and friendly competition for some 750 Primary 4 to 6 pupils from 23 schools.

The atmosphere was carnival-like with music continually being played in the background and there was a free flow of MILO and 100PLUS for those who needed a quick boost of energy or hydration, provided by Singapore Sports School’s corporate sponsors.

Five years ago, we started to encourage good sportsmanship and pupils who exemplify respect, responsibility, discipline, reliability, integrity, kindness, moral courage and good judgment were chosen for the “Sportsmanship Award”. How each Award winner demonstrated these values to become role models to their teammates and juniors was shared with the competitors. All recipients of the “Sportsmanship Award” were presented a MILO goodie bag, sponsored by Nestle Singapore.

The Track and Field Academy would like to thank the following contributors for the success of the 8th SSP-SA Primary Schools Track And Field Invitational Meet:
  • Guest-of-Honour, Mr Tan Wearn Haw, Director of National Youth Sports Institute, for presenting the prizes
  • Singapore Athletics for co-hosting the event
  • Hydration partner 100PLUS and energy beverage partner MILO
  • Colleagues from participating schools
  • Parent volunteers, Cluster 3 staff, alumni and student athletes of the Track and Field Academy
  • Principal, Mr Tan Teck Hock, Deputy Director of Sports, Madam Chan Wai Lin, and Assistant Director of Sports, Mr Mike Goh, for their invaluable support and guidance
  • Boarding Staff for their assistance

PROGRAMMES AND COMPETITIONS

PRE-SINGAPORE SPORTS SCHOOL PROGRAMMES

Singapore Sports School-Singapore Athletics Primary Schools Invitational Meet

The SSP-SA Invitational Meet is an annual meet that the academy organises each year for student athletes in the primary schools. The carnival-style meet, which introduces competition in a fun environment, gives primary schools athletes an additional opportunity to pit their skills against their competitors from other schools before they meet again at the National Inter-Primary Schools Championships. Events are age-appropriate and adapted to make them child friendly.

Singapore Sports School Talent Identification Programme

Primary 4 and 5 pupils are invited to train with Singapore Sports School's Track and Field Academy two sessions a week. These selected pupils are exposed to the Kid's Athletics and Multi-Events programme. All sessions are designed based on Long-Term Athlete Development and age-related training models.

MOE Junior Sports Academy

The Sports School’s Track and Field Academy conducts the Junior Sports Academy for the Ministry of Education. Primary School students have the privilege of receiving coaching under Sport School’s coaches who design the training curriculum for the programme. The training curriculum is planned and written by Head Coach Pedro Acuna. Coaching sessions are conducted by Sports School coaches, as well as Sports School alumni who are qualified coaches and accomplished athletes.

This programme exposes 10 year-old athletes to a wide variety of movement experiences via the multi-event concept in Track and Field. Fundamental bio-motor abilities such as agility, balance, coordination and speed are developed through fun-filled activities involving sprints, jumps, hurdles and throws. Taking into consideration the physical, cognitive and physiological development of the participants, this programme aims to build a broad skill foundation for them by avoiding early specialisation.

LOCAL AND OVERSEAS COMPETITIONS

International Children’s Games

Thailand Sports School Games

WALA Perth State Track and Field Championships

The Sports School sends its student-athletes to the WALA Perth State Track and Field Championships. The WALA Perth State Meet is an annual event that sees up to 3,000 athletes between 10 and 17 years old participating in the local meet. The carnival-style meet is a good platform for our athletes to hone their skills in different events. The Sports School sends up to 10 student-athletes each year to compete in the age-group competition, while other top performing student-athletes may also be selected by the Combined Schools Team to represent Singapore.

Two such meets, where student-athletes are able to test their abilities against competitors from Australia, Malaysia and Thailand, are the Western Australian Little Athletics State Multi Event Championships and the Bukit Jalil Sports School International Combined Events Championships.

SPECIAL PROGRAMMES

Ulsan Sports Science Secondary School Training Exchange

Overseas Training Camps

Singapore Sports School Track and Field Academy student-athletes have opportunities to train overseas and learn from physically and technically stronger athletes.

The variety in training environments and training partners have shown to add value to our training programme.

Student-athletes have gained motivation from training alongside elite Thai athletes at Thammassat University as well as youth athletes from Taoyuan Senior High School in Taiwan.

Taoyuan Senior High School is a powerhouse in the Middle Schools Track and Field in Taiwan.

A varied training programme was introduced to take advantage of the different terrain and facilities. The overseas training camps have contributed to a change not only in training attitude, but an improvement in performance.
