With report from team manager, Sean Tan as below,
NUS cross-country quartet of Ang Siew Min, Look Xinqi, Alan Koh and Eugene See came in 4th in the National Chung Kung University 80th Anniversary Half-Marathon Relay.
A total of 6 international teams and many other Taiwanese university teams took part in the relay.
NUS came in 4th behind Peking University, Peking Qing Hua University and Japan’s Chiba University with a time of 1hr 19mins 27secs, beating Osaka University and Chinese University of Hong Kong. The winner, Peking University was anchored by the champion of the half-marathon at the 2009 World University Games.
Looking at the line up the night before, the team was hesitant if they could even make top 6. On race day however, the team got off to a good start with first runner Eugene See coming in 7th at the exchange.
2nd runner Look Xinqi then overtook 2 other girls in front of her to come in 5th passing on to the 3rd runner Ang Siew Min (Captain), despite feeling under the weather, Siew Min hung on to 5th and handed over to Alan.
Alan picked up his pace and overtook the anchor from Osaka University to come 4th. It was a fantastic result for the quartet as besides Siew Min, all other 3 runners are in their first year in NUS and the team’s first exposure to an overseas race.

At our last AGM held on the 29 June 2011, members in attendance, resolved unanimously, that the SAA Constitution be reviewed and appropriately amended, where necessary, to update it to suit the changing needs and demands of national sports associations, in the coming years.
SAA has since February 2011 been granted the status of a Charity, in accordance with the guidelines of the Singapore Sports Council. This important change in our status reinforces the need now to consider appropriate amendments. A task force was accordingly set up to be chaired by our Hon Secretary to embark on this exercise. It is our intention to engage our members and affiliates alike in giving us their feedback on the appropriate amendments they feel should be addressed. You may wish to add your reasons in your response.
Feedback thus gathered will be collated and will form the blue print of the draft amendments. It will thereafter be tabled and deliberated at an appropriate forum – An Extra Ordinary General Meeting of our members. The collective and collaborative effort among members of the athletic fraternity is crucial to ensure a consultative approach is adopted in the process .
It is with this in mind that this email is circulated to members and affiliates. We hope you will set aside some of your precious time to review the current SAA Constitution and submit to us your considered thoughts and views to enable us to initiate the process towards collating and consolidating, before we begin drafting the amendments.
As members of the athletic fraternity it is in our collective interest that we work in the true spirit of sportsmanship through peaceful and friendly dialogue in this exercise. We urge you therefore to come together and collaborate harmoniously towards improving and enhancing athletics in Singapore. We hope the results of the proposed amendments will benefit the present and and future generation of athletes, officials and administrators alike.
View our current constitution: SAA constitution.
Please send us an email with your views and thoughts including the provisions you would like amended or prepserved, with your reasons if any. We hope to receive your feedback by 30 Nov 2011. Please send your email to: SAA, or use our online contact form.
Thank you for your time and effort.
