Tragedy struck our national dragon boaters three years ago. In 2007, while competing in the Cambodian Water Festival, our 22-man team was hit with a massive current that left the boat capsized. Team Singapore lost lost five members of the dragon boat team to the tragedy.

Fast forward to three years later. While the memories of their five team mates remain etched in their minds, the team has been busy preparing for the 16th Asian Games to be held in Guangzhou, China, from 12 to 27 November 2010. And they are raring to be let loose against other dragon boaters from China, Chinese Taipei, Indonesia and Myanmar, to name a few, who will also be competing at the Asian Games in Guangzhou.

 
 
 

 
 
"The Asian Games is almost like the Olympic Games to me. It will be very challenging. To play against the best in Asia is what I have been looking forward to." - Robin Ng, Goalkeeper, Team Singapore mens' hockey team
"This will be the second time that I will be representing Singapore at the Asian Games. I am honoured to be part of Team Singapore contingent and hope that we will be able to surmount all difficulties and make the knockout stages. We will prevail as long as we fight as a team and give nothing but our best as a team." - Hariss Harun, Captain, Team Singapore mens' football team
"The Asian Games is recognized and competed at almost the highest level, if not below Olympic Games level. Being able to compete at this Asian Games for the dragon-boat event gives the community hope that dragon-boating may reach the limelight of Olympic Games one day. To most of us, it may be an once-in-a-lifetime affair. We really want to enjoy the whole process." - Kieu Chin Wah, Captain, Team Singapore mens' dragon boat team

Dear Readers,

Team Singapore's sterling performance at the recent 19th Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India was nothing short of awe-inspiring.

With a rich medal harvest of 11 Gold, 11 Silver and 9 Bronze medals, our athletes delivered Singapore's best performance since we started our participation in the Commonwealth Games in 1958.

The medal rush for Team Singapore will continue



relentlessly with the upcoming 16th Asian Games which will be held in the "Flower City" of Guangzhou, China from 12 -27 November 2010.

Tirelessly bringing you the latest Games results and Team Singapore updates will be the Singapore Sports Council's Social Media Team. They have made it their mission to catch the scoops as they happen and update you through our Team Singapore Facebook page. Don't expect them to say much over the phone though because they will also be hoarse from cheering.

May our Team Singapore athletes continue to gain sporting glory for Singapore!

Go Team Singapore, Go! Wesley Lewis
