SINGAPORE (November 6 2020) – Singapore Athletics (SA) made a police report today after an online dialogue it had with stakeholders on Thursday (Nov 5) was interrupted by unknown person/s drawing lewd graffiti.

The unauthorised interruption caused a five-minute disruption to the session hosted by new SA president Lien Choong Luen and his management team. The dialogue, held for athletes, coaches, and parents of athletes, was held to introduce SA’s new management team and secretariat staff to key stakeholders, update SA’s selection criteria for key meets, and also share some highlights of the new team’s plans for the sport in the coming years.

Said SA president Lien: “We take this disruption seriously as it affected a session involving our athletics community. A big part of our mission is to be more inclusive and consultative, including sessions such as this. We hope to have more of such dialogues in the future in an open fashion, hence we have to send a strong message that such disruptive actions will not be taken lightly. We are also conducting our own internal investigations to identify the culprit/s. We will be handing over any information we gather to the authorities.

“We sincerely apologise to all attendees for the disruption, particularly given its offensive nature. In future, be assured we will exercise the utmost control over our online meetings.”

Mr Lien’s team took over leadership of SA following the recent SA elections in September 2020.
