Tao Li was the most bemedalled athlete winning 4 gold and 1 bronze medals.

Singapore Sports School student-athletes and alumni won a total of 12 golds, 6 silvers and 10 bronzes at the 27th Nay Pyi Taw Southeast Asian Games. Out of these 40 athletes who competed at the Games, held from 11 to 22 December 2013, 26 came home with at least one medal; 10 were gold medallists.
 
Once again, the swimmers were the biggest winners with their haul of 8 golds, 4 silvers and 2 bronzes. Two-time Olympian Tao Li was the Sports School contingent’s most bemedalled athlete winning 4 gold and 1 bronze medals. Amanda Lim won 3 golds and 1 silver medal, including victory in the Women’s 50m Freestyle event, where she clocked a new Games record of 25.69s. This is Amanda’s third successive victory in this event since the Vientiane 2009 Sea Games.
 
The Sports School contingent also saw 22 athletes making their Games debut with 12 winning a medal.
 
Four debutants struck gold. Silat exponent Nur Alfian Juma’en caused a major upset after he defeated reigning world champion Pham Van Ty in the Class F (70-75kg) final to win gold. Alfian was the Singapore silat contingent’s sole gold medallist at the Games. 470 World Champion Cecilia Low partnered her sister Priscilia to win her first Sea Games gold medal in the Women’s 470 Class. Paddler Clarence Chew made an impressive debut at the Games, winning a gold medal in the Men’s Team event and a bronze medal in the Men’s Singles event. Student-athlete Yee Herng Hwee was a non-playing member of the victorious team that won the Women’s Team event.
 
While they did not win a medal, two debutants made an impression at the Games. Student-athlete Amanda Tan, who was the youngest golfer ever to represent Team Singapore at the biennial Games, finished in a credible 8th position in the Women’s Individual event, the highest among Team Singapore women golfers. She also finished 6th in the Women’s Team event.
 
Sports School alumnus Veronica Shanti Pereira also demonstrated her potential in her Games debut. She set a new national record with a time of 24.12s in the Women’s 200m Heats and finished fourth in the Final with a time of 24.16s, a mere 0.03s off a podium finish. She also finished fourth in the Women’s 100m Final. Shanti, with fellow Sports School alumni Dipna Lim Prasad, T Piriyah, debutant Tyra Ree Summer and Wendy Enn, also set a new national under 23 record as the team finished fourth in the Women’s 4x400m relay. Their timing of 3min 44.80s  placed the team 10th in Asia for 2013.
 
Dipna Lim Prasad, who was Team Singapore’s flag bearer for the Games, won a bronze medal in the Women’s 400m Hurdles and set a new national record with a time of 59.96s. She is the first Singaporean woman to win an individual sprint medal since 1979.
 
Competing in his third Sea Games, Shooting Academy Coach Nigel Lim won 2 silvers – Men’s 50m Free Pistol Team and Men’s 10m Air Pistol Team and 1 bronze in the Men’s 10m Air Pistol Individual event.
 
With Singapore hosting the 2015 Sea Games, more will be expected from the Team Singapore Sports School contingent. If their performance from the Nay Pyi Taw 2013 Sea Games is an indicator of things to come, there could be more cause for celebrations in 2015.
