5th IYSC Closing Ceremony spells spectacular end to games
The 5th International Youth Sport Challenge concluded on 8 December 2012 with the finals of the football and netball competition played in the morning and the closing ceremony at night.
Thailand Combined Sports School emerged champions of the football competition after defeating Singapore Sports School Team A 1-0, with the only goal of the match scored late in injury time. In the netball competition, Hunter All Stars (Australia) defeated MAGS (New Zealand) 24-23 to clinch the overall title.
Mr Ridzal Saat, Deputy Director of Football Association Singapore, was the Guest of Honour for the closing ceremony, and presented medals to the top four teams in the football and netball competition. Despite losing out to Thailand Combined Sports School in the football final, Singapore Sports School had plenty to cheer about when Irfan Fandi Ahmad was named Most Valuable Player of the Competition and Zharfan Rohaizad, Goalkeeper of the Competition.
Our Guest of Honour was treated to performances by the eight football and 11 netball teams, ranging from cultural dance to hip hop and even a Thai Boxing performance.
At the end of the ceremony, the athletes exchanged souvenirs and danced the night away.
