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.

Aidil Nor Amani Norazman and Eng Wei Jin took major steps in their young careers after they were named in Singapore Golf Association’s first ever Junior Development Squad.

The duo, along with 11 other boys and 13 girls were selected after a junior camp in June and will receive specialised training from local professionals and elite golfers as part of SGA’s efforts to recognise talent at a younger age and provide them with more competitive opportunities.

The squad will also participate in weekly nine-hole trainings as well as regular gym sessions in a bid to help the youngsters fully realise their potential.

“My induction into the Junior Development Squad has inspired me to work harder and be the best among my peers. It is such an honour, and I have to thank SGA for giving me this opportunity to let me show my improvement over the next few years,” Wei Jin said. 

Conservative Tactics Pay Off For Nicole
HSBC Youth Golf Challenge 2017 First Leg

Sharon Teo
Manager, Athlete Life

Posted: 14 July 2017

Nicole Mok Shue Ying’s strategy to grind out a result paid off handsomely after she recorded a 3 day gross score of 216 (73,71,72) to win her second straight HSBC Youth Golf Challenge.

Such was the 16-year-old’s form at Orchid Country Club that she finished 17 strokes ahead of her nearest challenger in the Girls “A” Division.

“While I am pleased with the result, I am even happier with my performance as not only is this my first time having a round of even par, it was also the first time I had recorded an under par score as well as finished with a total of 3 under par.

“I told myself to make as little mistakes as possible and not play too aggressively. I was also hitting the ball well so I am glad my decision paid off,” Nicole said.

Also making waves at the tournament from 20 to 22 June was Andre Chong Wei Zer, who recorded a total of 214 (68, 74, 72) to beat Charles Alliston by 6 shots in the Boys “A” Division.

The pair’s performance will serve as a good encouragement for them, especially with the National Ranking Game and Singapore National Amateur Championship coming up.

“Not only has this win boosted my confidence, it has also made me want to work even harder to improve my game further and achieve more consistent results,” Nicole said.

Clean Sweep For Boys At NSRCC
2017 NSRCC Junior Open

Posted: 15 June 2017

Over the three-day tournament at NSRCC Kranji course, Singapore Sports School’s past and present golfers showed their skill and ability to adapt to inclement weather, affecting condition on the green.

Alumnus Ryan Wong Wey Ren took an early lead in the 2017 NSRCC Junior Open Boys competition which began on 30 June 2017, hitting a 4-under 68 for a 2-stroke lead over post-secondary International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme student-athlete Louis Tee Jun Jie. Ryan continued his strong form on Day 2 of the tournament, hitting an even par to widen his lead from his competitors.

Secondary 4 student-athlete Andre Chong Wei Zer delivered consistent plays in the three rounds of the tournament. A 1-under 71 on the final day, and the best score of that round, proved sufficient to break the tie between him and Louis for the Runner-Up position in the Best Gross category. Ryan held onto his lead for a first-place finish with 216 strokes. Andre and Louis concluded the Junior Open with 219 and 222 strokes respectively.

Secondary 4’s Jason Kuk Jian Jie also fared well in the competition. He clinched the Runner-Up title in the Best Net category with a net score of 220 strokes.

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).

Three In A Row For Callista

Callista Chen Wan Qing ended the 2017 National Schools Golf Championships in the best way possible – by winning a third consecutive “A” Division Girls Individual title.
To top it off, the 18-year-old also secured her second straight “A” Division Girls Team trophy.
The depth of Singapore Sports School’s Golf Academy was evident at Orchid Country Club as Callista finished ahead of teammates Nicole Mok Shue Ying, Jacqueline De Los Reyes Young and Denise Wong Mei Yan to ensure Sports School swept all the podium places available in the “A” Division Girls Individual event.
“As much as I am happy with my victory, seeing my teammates perform so well is the icing on the cake,” Callista, who is doing the extended International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, said.
The post-secondary student-athlete was in good form from 3 to 5 April as she carded 149 to win the individual component by 2 strokes, before pairing up with Jacqueline to beat Raffles Institution by 23 strokes in the Team event.
Despite her victories, Callista still took time to pay tribute to those who helped her achieve her goals.
“Happy as I am to have ended my National School Games journey on a high, this would not have been possible without the support of my parents, coaches, teammates and teachers.
“Credit must go to Sports School for providing me with the multiple training opportunities not just for myself but for the team so we could all do well together,” she said.
Sports School finished the championships with a medal tally of 3 golds, 3 silvers and 1 bronze, which included a gold from Andre Chong Wei Zer in the “B” Division Boys Individual event.

An Albatross, or a Double Eagle, refers to when a golfer scores 3 under par on an individual hole. An Albatrosses is the rarest score in golf – far more uncommon than a hole-in-one. 

Indeed, it is a common claim that the chances of making it is a million to one, and that one, is Singapore Sports School student-athlete Jason Kuk Jian Jie.

Competing in the same team as twin brother and fellow Sports School student-athlete Justin Kuk Zheng Zhong, Jason hit his Albatross on the 12th leg of the Singapore Golf Association Inter-Club League at Sembawang Country Club’s Par 5 Hole 4 on 18 September 2016. He used his 5 iron from about 180m. 

At 15 years and 9 months, his achievement also means the Secondary 3 student-athlete is now the youngest Singapore golfer to have recorded an Albatross at the SGA Inter-Club League.

Post-secondary student-athlete Nicholas Mok Chee Yong took one step closer towards his goal of a college scholarship in the USA when he won the Boys Championship at the Junior Tour of Northern California Summer Series III.

He shot an even 144 to beat Thomas Hutchinson by one stroke at the two-day tournament on 20 June and 21 June 2016.

Key to his victory was his performance on the second day, when the 18-year-old posted five birdies and an eagle to card a final round of 69 at the par-72 Coyote Creek Golf Course in San Jose, California.

“It was a nice win, and I hope this will convince college coaches that I can play as well in the US as I can in Singapore,” Nicholas said. “Perhaps I can land a spot in a college golf team and earn a scholarship.”

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.

Sports School Golfers Compete In World-Class Event
2016 Ciputra World Junior Golf Championship

Kuk Hun Yi
SPN Golf Representative

Posted: 15 June 2016

Six student-athletes from Singapore Sports School participated in the Ciputra World Junior Golf Championship in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 31 May to 3 June 2016.

Aidil Nor Amani Norazman, Callista Chen Wan Qing, Jason Kuk Jian Jie, Justin Kuk Zheng Zhong, Louis Tee Jun Jie and Tommy Tan Xuan Hao were among 152 participants from 16 nations – Australia, China, Chinese Taipei, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Nepal, the Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

The event was held in the difficult Damai Indah golf course, renowned for its high winds, length and slick greens. Competitions were organised across four age-group divisions for boys and girls.

The teams from Thailand showed their strong intent by sending about 60 juniors from their East, West, Central and International teams that included players from their national team. The next largest team came from host nation, Indonesia, with 46 players. 

The organisers made it fair for all the divisions by having forward tees up to yellow junior tees for the younger participants. From the back tees, from which the Sports School Boys team playing in “A” and “B” Divisions had to play, the Damai Indah course is an extremely difficult course especially on the back nine as many of the Par 4s were over 400 metres in length with the back nine Par 3s averaging more than 200-plus metres.

The eventual winners were dominated by participants from Thailand who were winners in six of the eight divisions, and who contributed the top 3 finishers in five categories. If this competition is any indication, the future indeed looks bright for the Thai nation with its strong pipeline of juniors.

Despite the small size of the Singaporean contingent, Singapore golfers were among the medallists coming in 5th in Boys “C” Division and 4th in Girls “D” Division. In the face of such numerically superior opposition, Sports School golfers played well with many of their rounds in the 70s and were placed as follows :

  • Aidil Nor Amani Norazman – 16th placing (Boys “B”) with four-day aggregate score of 332 (+44)
  • Callista Chen Wan Qing – 12th placing (Girls “A”) with three-day aggregate score of 241 (+25) 
  • Louis Tee Jun Jie – 9th placing (Boys “A”) with four-day aggregate of 307 (+19)
  • Tommy Tan Xuan Hao – 17th placing (Boys “A”) with four-day aggregate score of 314 (+24)
  • Justin Kuk Zheng Zhoing– 22nd placing (Boys “A”) with four-day aggregate score of 322 (+34)
  • Jason Kuk Jian Jie – 26th placing (Boys “A”) with four-day aggregate score of 324 (+36)

This year’s Ciputra World Junior was a wonderful experience for our Singapore juniors against a top field and a good appreciation of the mountain that they had to climb to compete against the region’s and world’s best.

Best In Singapore and (Some Say) Southeast Asia
2015 SEA Amateur Golf Team Championships

Gregory Foo 55th Putra Cup Individual champion 18sep15 Picture by SGA.jpg 
Gregory Raymund Foo Yong En failed to secure a spot on the team at the Singapore 2015 Southeast Asian Games, but he’s back with a vengeance.
In July 2015, Gregory won both the 8th Warren MST Amateur open and the 68th Singapore Open Amateur Championship. Having missed his chance to compete against Southeast Asia’s best at the Sea Games in few months earlier, the newly minted top Singapore amateur golfer had a point to prove when he went into the 55th South East Asia Amateur Golf Team Championships from 15 to 18 September 2015.
The Singapore Sports School alumnus won the four-round Men’s Open tournament in Khon Kaen, Thailand, laying claim to the title of Southeast Asia’s top amateur golfer as well. He is only the sixth Singaporean to win the region’s prestigious amateur tournament in all 55 editions. He took the lead after a 4-under 68 in Round 3 and concluded the tournament with 7-under 281 (71, 70, 68, 72), four strokes ahead of Thai Witchayanon Chothirunrungrueng (3-under 285; 71, 74, 70, 70). Kammalas Namuangruk, also representing Thailand, finished in third place with 2-under 286 (69, 73, 71, 73).
Team Singapore, comprising Gregory, post-secondary student-athletes Abdul Hadi Uda Thith and Marc Ong Chong Ching on the Republic Polytechnic-Singapore Sports School Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management Programme and national teammate Joshua Ho, came in runners up in the team event with a combined score of 884.
