In 2009, Team Singapore achieved two gold (James Wong’s Discus, Zhang Guirong’s Shotput), one silver (4x100m men), two national records (4x100m men, Long Jump men), four personal best (4x100m men, Amirudin’s 100m, Matthew Goh’s long jump, Scott Wong’s Discus) at the biennial Games with a squad of 15-member athletes team.
Well in 2011 Games edition, how did the 27-member athlete delegation fare this time round?
The report card so far is that the team has performed ‘satisfactorily’ as assessed by chef de mission Dr Tan Eng Liang giving athletics a rating of ‘B’ [link].
While the Straits Times gave the team an ‘A’ rating for their performance in Palembang [link].
One thing is for sure be it an A or B ratings, they’ve done us immensely proud surpassing the SEA Games medal expectation of six medals set by the association, and brought back home with a seven-medal haul instead.
This time round we achieved two gold, three silver, two bronze, one national junior boys record, four personal best, and six season best by our athletes.
The 44-member SEA Games athletics squad, athletes, officials and coaches combined sent for the 26th edition of the event in the year of 2011, is the largest since the 1993 edition.
The future looks bright as the competing squad comprises of 11 female and 17 male athletes, of which eight are below the age of 20-years-old.
Here’s a breakdown of medal tally and media files during the five competition days which saw 46 events, and 138 medals being contested.
