SEA Games: Team Singapore could finish with 52-gold haul

The last few years have been rich for Singapore sport as the country has hit milestone after milestone, starting with a record gold haul at the 2015 SEA Games in Singapore, followed by Joseph Schooling's historic Olympic gold at the Rio Games last year.

Singapore's men's cricket teams are the favourites to land golds at Twenty20 and 50-overs tournaments over the next fortnight in Kuala Lumpur, where the sport will be played as a medal sport for the first time in the SEA Games.

Football: Young Lions ready for Shah Alam 'cauldron'

To say the odds are against Singapore's SEA Games footballers in their crunch tie against Malaysia would be a big understatement.

The Young Lions looked toothless in their 0-2 opening loss to Myanmar on Monday, have won just three times in 17 matches since March and will face what is set to be a packed Shah Alam Stadium and a partisan crowd baying for a statement win from the hosts tonight.

Ice skating: Speeding towards a medal dream

Short-track speed skater Lucas Ng knows that, no matter how fast he skates, he cannot escape the attention of his regional rivals ahead of the SEA Games.

This year's edition will include winter sports for the first time, but while most Games debutants face arguably less pressure to perform than their more established compatriots, Ng will likely begin with a target on his back already.

Singapore

Schooling, the Singapore Olympic swimming gold medallist, has probably absorbed the lessons from recent happenings in the world of sport, but a reminder is timely.

With less than two weeks to go before the ...more

A good all-round effort helped Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) bag the C Division cricket title for a second consecutive year yesterday as their players also proved better equipped to deal with a new tournament format.

Triathletes training creatively for SEA Games gold

They may be underdogs, but national triathletes Willie Loo and Clement Chow are targeting nothing less than a one-two finish at the upcoming SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur.

"We don't just want to match our performances from two years ago. We won't be happy with that," said Loo, who won the bronze medal at the 2015 SEA Games on home soil (2hr 7min 1sec), with Chow (2:07:30) coming in fourth. "The ...more

Swimming: Schooling, Quah turn focus to SEA Games

They were both in good spirits as they entered the arrival hall at Changi Airport Terminal One yesterday, happy to be back home for a couple of weeks.

Team Schooling should zoom in on the sprints

Joseph Schooling's admission that he had slacked off in training after his stunning victory at last year's Rio Olympics does not square with his ambition to break the 100m butterfly world record at the Fina World Championships in Budapest (I got schooled: Jo; July 30).

There should be no shame or excuse losing to a better swimmer like Caeleb Dressel - the most talented and versatile sprinter ...more

Quah targets back-to-back personal bests

A more aggressive race strategy proved the perfect tonic for Quah Zheng Wen yesterday as he produced his best swim at the world championships in Budapest and rewrote his own national 200m backstroke record in the morning heats.

Swimming: Schooling rues extra prep time

He had hoped to use an extra day's rest to recharge his batteries and reignite his assault at this year's Swimming World Championships, but the plan backfired for Joseph Schooling yesterday.
