Best of Sport in 2012

Singapore Sports School alumni were among the big winners at Singapore Sports Awards 2013, picking up top honours in three major categories – Team of the Year (Event), Team of the Year (Team Sport) and Sportsboy of the Year. 

World Champions Cecilia Low Rui Qi and Rachel Lee Qing capped off a wonderful 12 months by taking home the Team of the Year (Event) Award. The sailing duo, the latest addition to Singapore Sports School’s list of World Champions when they won the 420 World Championships in Austria in August 2012, fought off stern competition from the National Women’s Table Tennis Team that won a team bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games and their fellow Sports School alumni Daphne Tan Shi Jing, Jazreel Tan Shi Hua and New Hui Fen, who were part of the National Women’s Bowling Team that won 4 silvers and 3 bronzes at the Hongkong 2012 Asian Tenpin Bowling Championships, to win the coveted Award. 

Sports School alumnus Safuwan Baharudin was a key member of the National Football Team that won the Team of the Year (Team Sport) Award following its triumph at the Asean Football Federation Suzuki Cup in December 2012. Safuwan’s partnership in the heart of the defense with Baihakki Khaizan laid the foundation for the Lions’ record 4th Asean title. 

Bowler Keith Saw Hui-Xun was named Sportsboy of the Year. Keith, a Republic Polytechnic-Singapore Sports School Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management Sports Scholar, did Singapore proud by winning the Men’s Singles title at the Asian Tenpin Bowling Championships in Hongkong in September 2012. His feat made him the first Singaporean, since Tommy Ong in 1996, to win the Singles’ crown at this competition. Keith also played an instrumental role in helping Team Singapore win the silver medal in the Men’s Team event at the World Youth Tenpin Bowling Championships in Bangkok in July 2012. 

The Singapore Sports Awards 2013 was held on 11 June at Singapore Expo Max Atria.
