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!

Scholarship Brings Forth Opportunities
2017 Singapore Olympic Federation-Peter Lim Scholarship

Posted: 15 June 2017

In 2010, Singapore Olympic Federation started a scholarship with a donation from philanthropist Peter Lim to aid young athletes in fulfilling their sport aspirations. The SOF-Peter Lim Scholarship helps budding athletes chase their dreams by overcoming the financial obstacle.

On 30 May 2017, 22 Singapore Sports School secondary student-athletes were awarded the scholarship. They were amongst 335 youth athletes in the seventh batch of scholarship recipients from the Primary, Secondary, Tertiary and High Performance (Under 18) categories. Eleven post-secondary International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme student-athletes also received the scholarship.

Beijing 2008 Olympic gold medallist and special guest Abhinav Bindra inspired scholars and those in attendance with a story of his journey to the coveted Men’s 10m Air Rifle title in 2008. His story spoke of resilience, of passion and of an undying desire to attain his goal despite the odds. Mr Bindra overcame disbelief from others, tried unconventional training methods to clinch India’s first Olympic gold medal in Shooting.

The High Performance scholarship recipients, presented to athletes under 18 years old, included synchronised swimmers Debbie Soh Li Fei, Gwyneth Goh Xiao Hui (IBDP Year 6), Miya Yong Hsing (IBDP Year 5), shooter Mohamad Irwan Abdul Rahman (DSLM Year 2) and tennis player Muhammad Shaheed Alam Meqsud Alam (DSLM Year 3). All four student-athletes will be making an appearance at the Kuala Lumpur Southeast Asian Games in two months’ time.

“This is my second year being awarded the Singapore Olympic Foundation-Peter Lim Scholarship High Performance award and it’s definitely contributed to my sport development. The Scholarship indirectly increases my opportunities for overseas exposure which has resulted in a huge boost in my sport career. The financial burden on my family is very much reduced, especially when I travel frequently for competitions. I am also able to purchase suitable equipment and invest in proper nutrition for my development,” said Shaheed, a post-secondary student-athlete in Sports School’s customised Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management.

Irwan, who currently holds the Men’s 10m Air Rifle National Record at 624.4 points, has also benefited from the monetary boost. He has travelled to Germany for training camps on two occasions and trained under Mr Abhinav’s former coach, Heinz Reinkemeier.

Mr Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Education (Higher Education and Skills) and Second Minister for Defence was at the award ceremony as guest of honour.

Shaheed's Precious ATP Point
2017 Singapore F1 Futures

Posted: 15 June 2017

Muhammad Shaheed Alam Meqsud Alam.jpg
23 May 2017 – a date Muhammad Shaheed Alam Meqsud Alam will remember for some time. That was the day the tennis player earned his first Association of Tennis Professionals ranking point in the Men’s Singles. Shaheed won his first match in the 2017 Singapore F1 Futures to make his way into the top 16 in the tournament.

“It definitely feels great to have won the first ATP ranking point of my career! This is the very reason why we train every day, to get closer to our goal one step at a time. Getting on the ATP ranking list is definitely a step in the right direction. However, it doesn’t stop there for me. With the point in the bag, it serves as a motivation and fuel for my desire to chalk up more points in the Senior competitions.”

The post-secondary student-athlete defeated Jake Delaney of Australia in straight sets – 6-3, 6,4 – to advance into the Last 16 and secure his first ATP point. He is currently the only Singaporean with an ATP ranking point, and the second to earn an ATP point in the history of Singapore tennis after national teammate Roy Hobbs first did so in 2011.

Shaheed’s campaign in the first of the Futures Series, Singapore Leg ended when he lost to Japan’s Sho Katayama 7-6 (7-9), 4-6, 0-6 in the Last 16 two days later.

“The Hong Kong F1 Futures on 19 June is in my plan. I hope to earn more points when I head over for the Hong Kong leg, to increase my ranking leading up to the Kuala Lumpur 2017 Southeast Asian Games.”

The ATP rankings is valid for 52 consecutive weeks following the accumulation of the point, after which the rankings will be refreshed.

Super Shanti Is RP’s Sportswoman Of The Year
Republic Polytechnic Sports Awards


Singapore sprinter Veronica Shanti Pereira is Republic Polytechnic’s Sportswoman of the Year. She also received Republic Honours and the Meritorious Gold award at RP’s Sports Awards on 24 July 2015. 

Shanti was asked to provide a video clip to accept her award in anticipation that she would be overseas. In the video clip, Shanti said that she is grateful to RP for selecting her as the Sportswoman of the Year.

“There are a few people I would like to thank because they have been journeying with me to where I am. Firstly, my family. They are my No. 1 supporters and they have been with me through thick and thin, and ups and downs. 

“Then, there’s my coach, Ms Margaret Oh. She has coached me for the past four years. She truly has my best interests at heart and wants to see me go the furthest that I can go in my sport career. She is also like my second mum, so I can’t be grateful enough to her.

“I also want to thank Singapore Sports School as well as Republic Polytechnic for providing the Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management programme at the Sports School for athletes like myself. The RP-SSP DSLM programme has afforded me time and opportunity to excel in both sports and studies. I am able to train regularly for major meets like the recent Southeast Asian Games as well as attend classes and compete assignments.”

Shanti said the path taken by student-athletes poses many challenges, but she has no regret.

“It takes a lot for us to chase our dreams and achieve our goals. There’s a phrase that I recall whenever I feel tired and self-doubt: ‘It is never easy, but the best things in life never are.’ I live by this phrase of comfort and assurance because the best things in life come along with a whole lot of blood sweat and tears, but at the end of the day, achieving our dreams will rise above all of that.”

Altogether, 41 awards of various levels were presented to Singapore Sports School’s post-secondary student-athletes who are enrolled in RP’s Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management programme; all recipients are national athletes in badminton, bowling, golf, swimming, tennis, table tennis and track and field. Among them, nine received Republic Honours and three, the Most Valuable Player award.

Sea Games-bound tennis student-athlete Muhammad Shaheed Alam Meqsud Alam and alumni Isaac Ong Yong Jie and Sherwin Foo Shi Yun competed in Davis Cup Group IV 2015 in Bahrain from 27 April to 2 May 2015. Roy Hobbs was the other player in Team Singapore.

Singapore has earned promotion to Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Asia/Oceania Zone Group III after victories in the Group IV promotion play-offs.

“The first rubber, between Yong Jie Isaac Ong of Singapore and Jordan’s Mousa Alkotop, was possibly the match of the day. Alkotop took the lead but Ong fought back to force a deciding set, which he won in a tie-break for a 36 63 76 (2) win and a 1-0 lead to Singapore,” said a news article posted by the event organisers.
