Singapore table tennis star Feng Tianwei has been named as Sportswoman of the Year for 2009.
 
The world number 2 edged out six other candidates- Quah Ting Wen (Swimming), Tao Li (Swimming), Rabiatul Adawiyah Yusak (Silat), Jasmine Ser (Shooting), Zhang Guirong (Athletics) and Cherie Tan (Bowling), to clinch the prestigious award for the first time.

The last time these two teams clashed, Albirex Niigata was denied victory thanks to a controversial goal awarded to them with 10 minutes left to play.
 
Hence, it is no surprise that the White Swans will be out to right the wrong when they square off against Geylang United once more at Jurong East Stadium tonight.

The situation does not seem right for both teams. So far this season, both SAFFC and Woodlands Wellington are not performing up to expectations.
 
One would not expect an eight-time winner of the S-League to be languishing anywhere below the top three in the League standings, but that is exactly what SAFFC is experiencing now. The defending champions lie in an unfamiliar sixth position.

With less than four months to go before the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games, Singaporeans have been urged to rally behind Team Singapore and make themselves heard at the various Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games competition venues across the nation through a new cheer song unveiled by the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) as part of its Cheer Singapore initiative.
 
Titled ‘You Are The One Singapore’, the song was specially composed and performed by local artiste JJ Lin for Cheer Singapore.

Competition Format
 
A Sailing regatta consists of a series of 15 individual races and 1 medal race at the Youth Olympic Games. Each race has a starting and finishing line both formed by an imaginary line between two orange flags on committee boats. Between the start and finish the sailors sail a track ‘course’ as defined in a document called ‘Sailing Instructions’. Each race starts with a first ‘leg’ that is always upwind.
 
Races are conducted around a course of marker buoys laid out by the Race Committee. There may be one, two or possibly three laps required to complete a race. The Race Committee will decide on how many laps are required immediately prior to the start of the race, and this depends upon the amount of wind present and the size of the course. The Race Committee will alter the size of the course and number of laps so that each race lasts approximately the defined length of time shown in the table below. The orientation of the course is set so that the first leg of the race is always into the wind.

Mark Plummer is a coach who leaves no stone unturned when it comes to making preparations for the big stage. (Photo: SingaporeSailing)

Mark Plummer has been to many places and seen many things. Prior to his current appointment as the Youth Olympic Games (YOG) Byte CII coach, the Scottish native’s most notable achievement was his appointment as the personal sailing coach to the Swedish 470 women’s team that won the bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Athens 2004[Dom1] . He was also involved in coaching teams from Ireland, Great Britain, as well as Indonesia. Short on experience? Hardly. However, Plummer believes he still has a lot more to learn. This is one trait he wants to impart in his young charges as well. SingaporeSports.sg managed to get this super-busy man to give us some time to learn more about his experiences and understand what needs to be done for the sport of sailing to move ahead.
