Together We Are Stronger!
Since young, I've always been very active in sports, not just one but I really enjoy doing many different kind of sports such as running, netball, swimming, badminton, cable-skiing and yes, despite my hectic schedule, I just picked up tennis recently too! And speaking of which, I broke my personal best record for Nike 10k Human Race within an hour(!!!) SOOOO HAPPYYYYY COS I FEEL REALLY ACCOMPLISHED~ :) I've been running little 10k marathons like this since I was 14 and yes, I guess this pretty much tells you how much I really enjoy doing sports!
Two weeks ago, when I heard from my Gushcloud manager, Sheena that I'll be meeting our Team Singapore athletes at River Valley High, I was honestly pretty excited. And yeap, it happened last Thursday and it honestly brings back so much great memories I had back in secondary school.
Kick started our Thursday afternoon with a forum together with our Team Singapore athletes from the Atheletics and Basketball Team. I really appreciate a forum like this because I've always wondered how these athletes (who're around the same age as me, studying in local universities, training on a daily basis) could juggle their time sooooo well. This discipline and passion they have for their sport really inspired and motivated me, they made me felt like I should never ever complain about my busy hectic school/work life. Cos you know, it's really all up in the mind. ;)
TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER!
Yes, it's true. As much as these athletes are well-disciplined, I believe they need loads of encouragement and support to keep them going. After all, we are all human beings yeah? One of the athletes was sharing with us that whenever the spectators are shouting out for their name or calling out "Go, Team Singapore!", it really was what that really keeps them going simply because they want to do Singapore proud. Yes, this is how we are all stronger together (:
After the forum, we also helped the RV students to form a formation to support Team Singapore!
There were two friendly matches/games led by the Team Singapore athletes.
Here's the first one: Athletics!
And here's the other one: Basketball!
It was really heart-warming to see how the RV students were so enthusiastic and cheering everyone on the court! That's the kind of team spirit that really brought me all the way back to secondary school days, it felt so good! (:
Judging from my smile, I'm sure you can tell how happy I was to be soaked in such atmosphere! Tyler & I was so engrossed in the match that we sat on the floor with the RV students too, lol where's the image? But then again, what image? Lol yay, "Go Team Singapore!!"
So glad to have made friends with some of our very-friendly Team Singapore athletes, Pin Xiu, Naqib & Calvin too! A shout-out to you guys if ya'll ever see this: It's really great knowing ya'll cos each and everyone of you is really inspiring to me! (Cos I know I will never have that kinda mental strength/discipline to handle all studies, relationship commitments and that crazy, hectic, physically-draining trainings on a daily basis. Lol yeah, #justbeingverytruthfulhere.) Keep going guys!! (:
I guess this pretty much sums up Tyler's and my Thursday afternoon at RV High. Oh yes, the lovely people in Singapore Sports Council have also passed each of us 5 limited edition water bottles for our dear readers! So please feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com if you want one! ;)
Please don't forget to hashtag #ourteamsg, upload a picture of yourself wearing a touch of red to show them your support too! Check out the current people who have done their photo pledges on www.ourteamsg.com!
You probably can’t see this but the red background is actually a mosaic of all the photo pledges that everyone has done on instagram after hashtagging #ourteamsg!
And here’s mine! ;)
And yes, you can stand a chance to win a trip to catch the athletes live in action at Southeast Asian Games in Myanmar coming December 2013 by participating in the photo pledge! They’re also playing in the ASEAN Para Games on 14th January so remember to mark your calendar to show some support for our fellow Singaporeans! These fellow friends in Team Singapore have really put in a lot of hard work into their sports and I'm very sure that any amount of support is definitely very much appreciated by them! So let’s show them some <3 and give them power to fight and win by doing your photo pledges today!
Before I end this post, you might wanna check out our national athletes in the video links below. Cos I've really gained a lot of inspiration from seeing how they've juggled and managed everything and I feel really proud of them! And I hope you will feel just as inspired too (:
