Singapore Sports School student-athlete Trevor Tan Xuxuan was part of Singapore’s five-member speed skating team at the 2017 Asian Short Track Speed Skating Challenge from 19 to 20 April 2017.

The Secondary 3 student-athlete held his own against his Asian counterparts, returning from Dongguan, China with a Team gold and individual bronze medal. Trevor managed a podium finish in the Men’s 1,500m before teaming up with Chua Qi En, Lucas Ng and Miki Chong to lead the charge in the Men’s 3,000m relay.

2016 was a year of firsts for Singapore Sports School as they welcomed their first taekwondo and wushu student-athletes in Brandon Low Sze Sheng and Chan Jun Kai respectively. 

Both boys’ decisions would seem vindicated after they returned with medals from various competitions. Jun Kai even represented Singapore at the Asian Wushu Championships in Taiwan.

Similarly, 2017 saw another round of firsts for the Sports School after the first skating student-athlete Trevor Tan Xuxuan won 2 medals at the 2017 South East Asian Short Track Trophy on 8 and 9 January.

“It is an honour to be the first skater in Sports School, and I am confident they can help me improve especially in my physical fitness and psychological readiness,” Trevor, who joined Sports School this year, said.

While the midstreamer won the Junior "C" Boys 1,500m event in a new personal best time, his Junior "C" Boys 1,000m race was not as straightforward.

Trevor was involved in a nail-biting finish after Thailand’s Triphop Thongngam’s clashed with Trevor and caused both skaters to fall. 

Despite the setback, the 14-year-old showed resilience to bounce back and clinch the bronze medal.

“After the crash, I just wanted to stand up and finish the race as best as I could. While I am disheartened, I will not let this affect me. Instead, my two personal bests and seeing the improvements in my technique are more important,” Trevor said.

Trevor will hope his strong showing at The Rink@JCube will put him in good stead as he works towards his dream of competing in the Winter Olympics.
