11 August 2015 – While everyone was caught in the midst of the long awaited SG50 celebrations, it was announced on 9 August 2015 that our very own former national sprinter, Mr Canagasabai Kunalan, Singapore Athletics Vice-President of Training & Selection, will be awarded the National Day Award 2015, Meritorious Service Medal.
The Singapore National Day Awards are a means of recognising various forms of merit and service to Singapore. This year, a total of 3,888 individuals in 23 award categories received National Day Honours.
Mr Kunalan has been in the education industry for the past 50 years and had a total of 15 SEA Games and 5 Asian Games medal under his belt.
When asked with regard to how he felt in receiving this prestigious award, he mentioned “To receive a National award at age 72 is humbling. I hope it inspires others to continue to serve as long as they can and I shall endeavor to serve as meritoriously for as long as I can, but of course for as long as I am invited.”
We here at Singapore Athletics would like to congratulate Mr Kunalan on his award and in his boundless efforts in being an inspirational role model to the community. We are sure that there will be many more to come!
