Watching the last Olympics brought back many memories of my personal experience as an athlete. I also felt it was the right time to share what my experiences were like and what it will take to bring more Singaporean athletes to the world stage. These Olympics also saw Singapore’s largest contingent of athletes since the 1970s. They have sacrificed their time to master their skills and different passions for sports to bring Singapore to higher heights. This is a success in itself and should be celebrated as a nation. Whatever the outcome, they have made us proud!
The first is the first. If you want to find out how to become a professional athlete in Singapore, this is not the article to consider. Instead, what I will address are the realistic hurdles and obstacles in the course of the journey to achieving the first step as a successful Singapore national athlete.
