The Community Sports Festival (CSF) at Anchorvale Community Club on 16 March saw eight of our Team Singapore athletes bonding with the community through a series of sports and other fringe activities.
Four basketballers and four shuttlers joined 2500 residents in a community mass walk and various sports try outs such as basketball, badminton, futsal and mini archery to name a few. Amidst the hustle and bustle, we managed to catch up with badminton player Neo Yu Yan Vanessa and basketballer Wu Qingde, the first after their return from the recent SEA Games in Myanmar.
Both athletes have returned to their training courts as they prepare themselves for upcoming tournaments in July 2014, the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow for Neo and the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) for Wu.
