Embracing The Sports School Values 
The Straits Times Young Star Of The Month (November 2017)

The Singapore Sport’s School five core values are Respect, Integrity, Responsibility, Excellence and Resilience. Student-athlete Lincoln Forest Liqht Man won The Straits Times Young Star Of The Month for the month of November 2017 through his display of Resilience and Excellence. 

Lincoln was recognized for his outstanding performance in the 2017 ASEAN Schools Games (ASG) held in July. He won four golds, one silver and two bronzes, making him Singapore’s top performer at the annual event. 

What was notable about his achievement at the ASG is that on the eve of Chinese New Year, Lincoln had fallen off the vault while training and landed on his right wrist. This injury, a partial tear in the scaffold ligament, caused him to consider quitting the sport and focus on his studies. 

Together with the help of his teachers and classmates, Lincoln decided to persevere. He pushed himself, made the effort to recover from his injury and grow stronger to see where he would end up. Even if he did not get anywhere, at least he knew he gave it his best shot. 

Lincoln’s best shot was rewarded when he became Singapore’s top performer at the ASG. He has displayed both the School’s values of Resilience and Excellence through winning The Straits Times Young Star Of The Month.

“Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.”- Muhammad Ali

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.

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!

Lincoln Finishes As Singapore's Top Performer
ASEAN Schools Games

Posted: 15 August 2017


No one would have begrudged Lincoln Forest Liqht Man if he had targeted just one bronze medal at the 2017 ASEAN Schools Games especially when one considers the 17-year-old had come up empty in his previous two appearances at the annual championships.

Yet Lincoln had much bigger dreams – to win Singapore’s first gymnastics individual men’s gold medal since 2011.

However, such was Lincoln’s form during the Games that he would surpass that to win 4 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronzes and emerge as Singapore’s top performer.

Not only did he finish first in the Individual All Around, Individual Floor and Parallel Bar events, he was also part of the quartet which clinched Singapore’s first ever Men’s Team gold.

“I knew how my seniors did in previous editions of the Games, so I really wanted to do my best to show everyone that the standard of Singapore’s gymnastics has improved,” Lincoln said.

His achievement was even more impressive when one remembers Lincoln had been struggling with wrist, back and ankle injuries during the competition from 19 to 25 July.

“Credit must go to Ms Jolene Tan, our sport physiotherapist who has been giving various strategies to manage the pain. My General Manager Ms Serena Wong has also been very helpful as she has always stood by me and given me plenty of moral support.

“In fact, being a full time student-athlete is difficult due to the sacrifices we need to make, but being in Sports School has helped me better juggle both my academic and sporting commitments,” Lincoln said. 

Sports School’s other multiple gold medallists were paddler Gerald Yu Zong Jun and Bowling Academy’s Aidan Poh.

Gerald bagged three gold medals thanks to his exploits in the Boys Team, Boys Doubles and Mixed Doubles events, while Aidan bowled his way to victory in the Boys Doubles and Boys All Events to add on to the two bronze medals he secured in the Boys Quartet and Boys Singles.

Sports School student-athletes ended the tournament with 10 golds, 8 silvers and 9 bronzes, a figure which amounts to slightly over 40 percent of Singapore’s gold medals.

Leah Qualifies For ASEAN School Games
2017 National Schools (Rhythmic) Gymnastics Championships

To Leah Chew, the scenario was simple.

Perform well at the 2017 National Schools (Rhythmic) Gymnastics Championships on 13 April and she would earn a chance to compete at the ASEAN School Games in June.

However, a stress fracture in her foot sustained in February meant the National School Games would commence with her having just three weeks of training.

Nonetheless, she pushed through the pain barrier to win an Individual All-Around silver and book her place at the AEAN School Games.

“My parents have been encouraging me to work hard to qualify for the ASEAN School Games, so this will make them very happy,” the Secondary 3 student-athlete said.

In a strong show of consistency, Leah was the only gymnast who finished on the podium in all four categories, a credible achievement considering her injury had forced the 14-year-old to move away from her usual routines.

Leah eventually finished the meet with silver medals in the Ball, Hoop and Ribbon categories along with a bronze in the Clubs routine to narrowly miss out on the gold medal by 1.209 points at the Bishan Sports Hall.

“I am very pleased with myself since I had just recovered from my injury,” Leah said, “I will work hard to be near my peak and make Singapore proud at the ASEAN School Games.”

Howin Bounces Back From Injury

Singapore Sports School ROAR Award

Term 4 ROAR Award Winners.jpg

Badminton Academy student-athlete Howin Wong Jia Hao missed out on opportunities to hold his racket for about one-and-a-half years due to a serious injury. A condition affecting his elbow resulted in significantly reduced court time for him since 2015, even requiring two surgeries to help him get back to competitive sport.

Throughout his injury, Howin continued training with his teammates in the School-Within-A-School programme. He diligently worked on the physical aspects of the game while he was restricted on the technical front.

Having joined Singapore Sports School as one of the top players in his age-group, Howin felt great discouragement upon hearing the doctor’s recommendation of a second surgery, after the first had not achieved its desired effects. However, the Secondary 3 shuttler persevered and was determined to come back stronger from his injuries. He exhibited the Champion’s Mindset by training harder through his injury, believing that a true champion will not – and does not – give up when the going gets tough. 

In September 2016, Howin’s hard work and resilient spirit paid off when he won the silver medal in the Chinese Swimming Club-Li Ning Age-Group Badminton 2016 Boys Doubles and reached the quarter-finals in the Singles events.

Howin was presented the ROAR Award by Principal Tan Teck Hock on 9 September 2016 for his display of the Champion’s Mindset in his sport pursuits.

Choy Xin Ying (Bowling, Secondary 3), Jean Koh (Fencing, Secondary 1), Germaine Au Shi Tong (Netball, Secondary 3) and Phebe Meredith Lau Zhi Ling (Rhythmic Gymnastics, Secondary 3) also received the ROAR Award for Term 4 for showing outstanding character and leadership qualities.  There were 15 nominees for the award this term.

Lincoln Forest Liqht Man and Sean Yeo Xong Sean won six medals for Singapore at the South East Asian Gymnastics Zone Artistic Junior and Age-Group Championships in Vietnam from 23 to 29 August 2016.

Both had competed in the Junior category, where Sean clinched a gold medal in the High Bar and a bronze in the Pommel Horse, while Lincoln earned one silver in the High Bar and two bronzes in the Rings and the Vault events.

The pair’s performances also helped Singapore clinch bronze in the Team event.

“I'm extremely happy with my medals as they vindicate all the hours that I have put into the gym, as well as the efforts my coaches have invested in me,” Lincoln said.

Despite his successes, the Secondary 4 student-athlete is fully aware of the honour associated with representing one’s country.

“I am especially grateful to have so many opportunities to represent my country,” Lincoln said, “and I hope I can continue to win more medals for Singapore.”

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.

Learning From Competitors

Posted: 13 May 2016


Avryl Tan Ying and Michele Petrova Lau Xin Ling travelled to Astana, Kazakhstan, to represent Singapore at the 14th Junior Rhythmic Gymnastics Asian Championships from 28 April to 1 May 2016.

In a group of 44 of Asia’s top junior gymnasts, Michele and Avryl placed 22nd and 23rd, respectively.

“The Asian Junior Championships was a really big competition for me, and knowing I was up against gymnasts who are much stronger, I put in extra effort in my training. My performance could have been better but I have also learnt a lot from other competitors in terms of how they train and compete. During the pre-competition training, I saw some of them being scolded for their mistakes, but when they’re up on the mat, they did not allow the reprimand to affect their performances. In fact, many chalked up very high scores. From this, I have learnt not to dwell on my mistakes but learn from them and move on,” said Avryl of her second experience at the competition.

This annual event attracts top level university gymnasts from the city of Kansai. Our student-athletes managed respectable 34th and 39th places out of 114 in the Individual All-Around competition participated by senior gymnasts.

Aside from the competition, Team Singapore also exchanged and shared best practices with their fellow competitors. The Team also had the opportunity to work with a sport psychologist from the Osaka University of Health and Sports Science. It was a fruitful trip which puts our gymnasts in good stead for the upcoming 13th Singapore Open in June 2016.

Edlyn Ho Zen Yee, Lyn Yeo Siew Lyn, Michele Petrova Lau Xin Ling and Phebe Meredith Lau Zhi Ling were selected to represent Singapore in the 2nd Aphrodite Cup in Athens, Greece – a competition which attracts many national gymnastics teams from Europe.

In the Junior category with 113 competitors, Phebe came in 77th and Michele 81st. In the senior category, Lyn came in 35th while Edlyn came in 37th out of 44 competitors. It was certainly an eye-opener for the girls. 

Sharing her experience, the Singapore 2015 Southeast Asian Games gold medallist Edlyn said: “The competition was a very memorable one because we were exposed to the different types of warm-up techniques of the Europeans and their elegant portrayal of their routines. The trip has certainly inspired us to raise our own standards for the next competition.”

Lincoln Forest Liqht Man emerged as the top FIG Junior in artistic gymnastics at the 8th Singapore Gymnastics National Championships at Bishan Sports Hall from 12 to 20 March 2016.

The Secondary 4 student-athlete garnered 71 points to clinch the Individual All-Around Junior title along with 4 gold and 2 silver medals in the Individual Event finals. Lincoln’s fellow Secondary 4 teammate Kaeson Lim Junyi, however, narrowly missed out on a podium position as he finished 4th despite winning 1 gold and 2 bronzes.

Joining Lincoln on the podium was alumnus Jim Pon Keng Jun who finished 3rd in the Individual All-Around competition and won a silver in the Floor Exercise final. Not to be outdone, fellow alumnus Zeng Qiyan matched Jim’s feat by also clinching bronze in the Individual All-Around Senior competition, along with 4 silver medals.

Our rhythmic gymnasts gave Singapore Sports School more reasons to smile as the trio of  Edlyn Ho Zen Yee, Jael Chew  and  Lyn Yeo Siew Lyn, swept all the podium places in the senior IAA category. Lyn won 3 golds and a bronze en route to securing the Senior Individual All-Around crown. There was also good news in the Junior category as Phebe Meredith Lau Zhi Ling won a silver medal in the Junior Individual All-Around competition along with 2 golds and 2 silvers from her Individual Apparatus final.

It was an eye opening experience for student-athlete Edlyn Ho Zen Yee who competed with the national rhythmic gymnastics team at the 2015 FIG Rhythmic Gymnastics World Cup in Lisbon, Portugal, from 26 to 29 March 2015.

“It was a good experience for me and the team. The standard was very high and having competed against the best rhythmic gymnasts in the world, we are really motivated to train harder as we realise how much more we need to improve in order to reach that level”, said Edlyn.

Team Singapore finished 15th in the Individual All-Around Rhythmic Group competition.
