Asmah Hanim will be appointed SAA Chief, Sports Development & Performance, from 21 April 2014

SINGAPORE, 12 March 2014 – SAA has finally found a suitable candidate to fill the post of Chief, Sports Development & Performance.

The 30 year-old former sprinter has been in athletics since her school days not only representing her school and university teams but also the national team.

Asmah’s past work experiences has equipped her with the necessary skills and work ethics to undertake the current task given to her. Her background as an athlete (Youth to Senior Level) helps her to understand the needs of the athletes and the struggles they encounter – something that will be useful to consider when making decisions concerning their sporting development. .

She comes with a Master of Exercise and Sports Science in [Sports Performance]. She also attended the International Coaching Course (ICC) organized by the Strategic & International Directorate of Semmelweis University, in cooperation with the IOC (Olympic Solidarity) designed to train and educate coaches in 2011 at Semmelweis University, Budapest (Hungary), where she topped the class of 45 participants from 12 countries.

In undertaking the role of Chief (Sports Development & Performance), Asmah will look into enhancing the development and high performance support for athletes and coaches. This includes overseeing training, development and sports science support matters pertaining to the national team at all age group and senior levels. She will also look at ways to improve the development of coaches here as to how they can improve their coaching standards locally. Her work involves working closely with athletics stakeholders and partners to ensure alignment of athletics programmes to national objectives and in doing so, she aims to develop better athletics pathway to allow successful transition from Youth/Junior to Senior High Performance Level.

Quote from Asmah:

“I am thankful to be given the opportunity. While the journey ahead will be filled with challenges, I hope to inspire confidence within the fraternity and look into how best the Association can help to develop potentials and support their needs while working within our constraints. I acknowledge the effort of my predecessors in improving the sport over the years and look to continue the work they have done in raising the standard of the sport. In order to ensure its success, I will need the cooperation of all stakeholders involved – to work towards a common goal of improving the sport TOGETHER. It is also vital that we acknowledge that change is a process and it takes time. I do not see my age as a disadvantage as age brings new perspectives. Perspectives create change. This coupled with passion and sincere intention to improve the sport, will be the key motivation to work towards raising the standard of the sport.”

Quote from President SAA Mr Tang Weng Fei:

“ I am very glad that Asmah is coming back to SAA and contributing in another capacity. She was our Assistant Honorary Secretary during my first term as President SAA (June 2010 – June 2012) and I am very impressed with her work ethics and engagement with our stakeholders at that time. More impressive is that she was the top student during the IOC diploma coaching course that we had recommended her to attend and she did us proud. As we move forward to 2015 and beyond, we need a young team to lead SAA and athletics to the forefront to challenge our region’s best athletes. These young leaders will bring in new and fresh ideas to improve Athletics in Singapore. I am willing to take the leap of faith and trust in them to succeed, as we too will guide them to become great leaders themselves to continue the journey as we have started.”
