A gold medal at the SEA Games may not figure much in the international sporting arena, but it’s an important step for the sport of gymnastics.
Even more importantly, it goes to show that if you put in bits of the right stuff in your preparation, you’re very likely to succeed where $3 million into a soccer team with a whole load of foreign names won’t.
So, come on, Singapore Sports Council, let’s keep supporting the right people and help local athletes in lesser known sports. Especially sports which don’t resemble a money-making venture.
Congratulations again, Singapore Gymnastics team. Then again, watching you train week-in, week-out, me and my colleagues always knew you were gonna do well.
