WITH less than two months to go to the 2010 Asian Games in Guangzhou, China, Singapore fencers have delivered a welcome boost for the team’s preparations for the Asiad on the first day of the Commonwealth Fencing Championships 2010 taking place in Melbourne, Australia. Tay Yuling, 23, clinched a bronze medal in the women’s foil individual event, Singapore’s first-ever medal at the Championships. The previous best-showing was a top-16 result, achieved by Singapore fencers at a number of previous Championships. Yuling led Wang Wenying, who finished in the top-8, and Ruth Ng in the top-16. There were a total of 36 fencers in the women’s foil individual event. Yuling, currently a graduate student at the National University of Singapore’s Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, lost to Shanghai-born Yuan Ping who is now fencing for New Zealand 6-7 in the semi-finals. Yuan eventually defeated Lisa McKenzie from Scotland 11-10 in the finals to clinch the gold.

Tampines Rovers striker Aleksander Duric, 40, gets a page in the history books all to himself after having scored his 300th S-League goal in a match against Balestier Khalsa at the Tampines Stadium last night.
 
Duric’s achievement is all the more impressive considering he was the only striker on the Stag’s side. As Qiu Li was injured and Khairul Amri left for Indonesia’s Persiba Balikpapan, it was up to Duric to penetrate Balestier Khalsa’s defence.
 
“It’s actually a relief to have reached this target,” said Duric. “I’m glad to have done it finally.”

It was a weekend of controversy within the Formula BMW Pacific camp with post-race penalties altering the initial results, but championship leader Richard Bradley pulls ahead neatly with a 55-point stronghold over the next driver for both the Drivers’ Championship and the Rookie Cup. At his first ever street race experience, the 19-year-old Eurasia Motorsport driver clinched a win in Round 11 on Saturday and a podium finish in third place for Round 12 on Sunday. With only three races to go in Japan next month and Macau in November, Bradley is feeling confident about the championship.
 
Qualifying was special as Bradley raced under the lights on Friday night. A mistake during his fastest lap cost him pole position, placing him in second. Bradley then started from second place on the grid for Round 11 on Saturday afternoon. He took the lead from Turn 7 in the first lap and led for most of the race until the final lap when Formula BMW Europe guest driver Daniil Kvyat of Eurointernational hit him from behind. Kvyat took the chequered flag but was subsequently penalised for the move by the stewards, awarding Bradley the win. Regardless, as guest drivers are not entitled to score points, Bradley scored full points for Round 11 with an additional point for qualifying.

“For me the past two years have gone well, I’ve finished second (placing) two years ago, should have been second last year, but I made a mistake, so I’ll try not to do that this time.
