Foreign Sports-men-women FTW!

Feng Tianwei! You go grrl!

If it were not for the new citizens, 2nd rung exports from China though they may be when they left and lured by the promise of competing in the world stage which might be denied if they remained in Xian or somewhere, Singapore would not get even a medal. Not even if we increased the pledge to lend IMF US$10 billion instead of the US$4 billion.

Oh we keep hearing the line that Singapore has never gotten a medal since Tan Howe Liang blablabla. FFS, in 1960, we were not the Singapore as we know it. We had autonomy since 1959, but not independence. So in technicolour technicality, Feng Tianwei's FTW bronze in ping pong is our first ever Olympic medal. And give Feng and the other PRC talents a break even if they can't speak English properly to our liking.  As long as no steroids consumed to make Feng grow bulgy muscles and bushy mustache, no sabotage of the opponent like scheming to make Ishikawa eat bad sashimi the night before, or other grounds for disqualification like hiring a songkok and sarong bomoh to stand next to and spit at Ishikawa before and during the match, a medal won by a citizen regardless of place of birth and previous citizenship, is still a medal won! Xenophobic Singaporeans pissing on Singapore's Olympic medal, come on.

The new sports ministry whatever it is called, in the name of maintaining the current ethnic mix, should seriously bring in some Pakis or Indian sports talents next so that we can have a world class cricket team to boast about in 2016! Oh wait. Cricket not an Olympic sport. Waste money bring them in. Fuck. What about diving! Bring in Chinese divers to spring Singapore's inspiring diving ambitions! Diving is the new ping pong where Chinese imports are concerned.

SINGAPORE - The Republic opened accounts at the 2012 London Olympics tonight when Feng Tianwei defeated Kasumi Ishikawa of Japan 11-9, 11-6, 11-6, 11-5 to secure the table tennis women's singles bronze medal.

Feng was imperious in the 26-minute encounter, especially after she edged a tense first game, and never allowed Ishikawa to get into any kind of rhythm.

Feng's bronze is the first individual Olympic medal for Singapore since Tan Howe Liang won silver in weightlifting in the 1960 Rome Olympics.

It was also Singapore's third medal at the Olympics following the women's table tennis team silver at the 2008 Beijing Games.

Feng with teammates Li Jiawei and Wang Yuegu will begin their campaign in team event against Poland on Friday. PHILIP GOH


  1. That's right. Your first medal was won by us. And in Beijing, we won a Silver. Nanananana.

    1. Wait there's hockey! We can win if we import good enough Pakistanis and Indians.

  2. yeah!! can also consider some Jamaicans for athletics, americans and australians for swimming... oh yah.. bring in the whole equestrian team from Britain!!

    imagine how many medals we can win if we bring in ALL the Olympic athletics all over the world... the medal tally table will look like this:

    SIN - 100gold-100 silver-100 bronze,
    rest of the world 0-0-0

    heck, we can even change the name of the Olympic games to the SINGAPORE Games... wonderful!!

  3. India and Pakistan are rubbish in hockey and have been for years. The Koreans are better, and sometimes even the Chinese and Japanese are better than them.
    In hockey:
    Great Britain (England in World Cups)
    South Korea

    These are the top teams

  4. Maybe you want to have a read what other media around the world is publishing. For sanity sake, stay away from the SPH Straits Times.

    Embarrassing, mate. I don't know where to hide my face.
