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!

One Singapore Sports School student-athlete and two alumni have qualified for the 2015 New Taipei ASTC Triathlon Asian Championships on 12 June 2015 after being the first three Singaporeans finishers at the 2015 Subic Bay ASTC Triathlon Asian Cup on 25 April 2015.

In a field of 26 competitors from Chinese Taipei, Hongkong, Malaysia,  Mongolia, Singapore, Syria, UAE, USA, Uzbekistan and host country, the Philippines, Bryce Chong Sheng Cher finished 5th in 58:33.0s, Secondary 4’s Aaron Shane Tan Wen 11th in 61:26.11s and Zacharias Low 14th in 62:04.0s. The two other competitors from the Sports School family were alumnus Sumedha Lim Kian Tat who finished 16th in 66:11.0s and Secondary 5’s Esmond Lim Shi Neng who was 24th in 70:02.0s. All the boys went with good splits and all achieved Personal Best times in total time across the format of 750m Swim, 20km Bike and 5km Run. Except for Bryce, all the boys donned national colours for the first time.

Bryce was fourth out of the swim and with the leading pack cycling throughout, while Shane and Zacharias were in the second pack, about 1 minute behind. Bryce managed to keep pace with the Hongkongers in the run for about 2km, but the fast pace forced him to fall back afterwards.

“Competition was fierce and intense from the swim to bike and run, but we came prepared. I was happy with my sub-58m time and also rejoice with my fellow Sports School brothers,” said Bryce.

“Everyone completed a seriously brilliant race and improved tremendously. Credit must go to Shane for a tooth and nail finish in the last 100m only to lose to American Kyle Izzo by two steps (61:24.0s) and beating Filipino Justin Chiongblan by more than 10m (61:37.0s). Zacharias also completed a creditable sub-63m race, Sumedha did a sub-67m and Esmond, a sub-71m.”

It was Bryce’s first PB since the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games, and this achievement makes him the fastest junior over this distance across all age-groups. Bryce was the first competitor to finish after four Hongkongers – Kok Yu Hang (56:54.0s), Youth Olympian Michal Lam (56:55.0s), Oscar Coggins (57:49.0s)and Yu Shing Him (58:00.0s).

Bryce had competed in this competition twice before, but he said this year is especially endearing  and memorable because “there were five Sports School student-athletes past and present” racing in the Junior Elite 16-19 Sprint Distance category.

“The bonding among us was strong and that created an exceptional positive atmosphere for everyone to race good and hard. Every one of us achieved times we did not think possible and  squeezing out the very last once of strength to push those tired legs to dash towards the finish line in the last 150m, still trying to out-sprint our competitors, gave us an adrenalin rush for such a memorable finish,” said Bryce.
