Editorial & Facebook LIVE Team
myActiveSG Editor & Presenter (supposedly Singapore's favourite Facebook LIVE presenter)
Armed with a laptop and a notepad for "old-school" note-taking, Gary Yang started his career as a suit cum copywriter at an advertising agency, followed by a successful stint in Corporate Communications with Singapore Press Holdings and Asia Pacific Breweries, before eventually joining the editorial team at Sport Singapore. He now turns his attention to sporting headlines and sniffing out news angles in the sporting arena.

Often mistaken as a bad boy, John Yeong is really more of a softie at heart. His 6 years spent overseas has helped him to seamlessly toggle between local coffee shop talk and an 'ang moh' accent without skipping a heartbeat, making him a versatile potato. John's stint as a footballer over the years spans competitions like the Canadian National Soccer League and Singapore's National Football League. This multi-talented jock is also the defacto host and emcee for SportSG events. In his free time, he loves to eat anything filled with red beans.
The new kid on the presenters' team, Sam not only loves to play sports but enjoys spectating as well. Sometimes quite literally. Fondly known by the myActiveSG team as SLow because of her real name, she is actually anything but slow in most things she does, particularly when delivering her lines across on set. This bubbly and fresh faced lady laughs at almost anything and enjoys bringing joy to the rest of the team and others.
A new day dawns, but not quite early enough for Kerstin Ong. She’s already up hours before sunrise, working on her latest training routine with her Team Singapore athletics coach. Choc full of dynamism and giggles, there is more to this national hurdler's locker of tools than just her lame jokes. Watch as each slow grin spreads across her face as she teases our audience with another witty line before leaving all of us in her wake, eating dust.
Jean is what some may call the ultimate paradox. She looks very sporty but erm, apparently doesn't do sports all that often! Well, except for the occassional spectating at tennis matches of course, if you can call spectating a sport. Bubbly and outgoing isn't something used to describe this presenter, but there isn't a need to for someone like her, because she is cooler than beans! A natural on screen talent, Jean is the latest addition to the myActiveSG.com presenters team, and has taken to her role like a duck to water. Be sure to catch her on our upcoming Facebook LIVE sessions on myActiveSG Facebook page!
Be it chatting up the local neighbourhood folks, talking on screen, or immersing in work at his workstation, Guo Wei always gives 100 percent. His growing popularity among the heartland crowd is tribute to his genuine down-to-earth nature, which makes him both respected and well liked wherever he goes. Blessed with athletic genes, Guowei is known by many for his blistering speed on the courts, making him an asset for anyone on his team in SportSG's sporting friday activities!
Designer & Lead Creative
If the words crazy and creative ever got married and bore a son, he would probably look like Sol Ami. Meet our designer in chief, so often the creative juice behind many a narrative of a SportSG Facebook Live session. More than just providing interesting ideas for our scripts, our multi-talented designer is also well versed in the art of animation and likes to disturb office colleagues in his free time. Who knows what other dark ideas our office genie will think of next? We wonder.
Nicolette cannot stop moving. A fervent believer in the importance of fitness and sports, she cannot imagine a life washed clean of physical activity. When she isn’t having fun in the swimming pool or dance studio, she enjoys keeping up with the exhilarating world of Formula One.
Koo Ching Long
Being an avid spectator of all sports, Ching Long finds it interesting to write and learn more about them. She has come to realise that watching and playing a sport are two very different things, gaining great appreciation for the the hard work athletes put in to perform in competition.
Previously, Karyn dabbled in food writing where she honed her skills writing various features as well as reviews. Now, she continues to cut her teeth by penning sports articles, fuelled by her passion for watching sports competitions, and her willingness to try her hand at various sports.
Audrey wrote for The New Paper and The Straits Times, before moving on to writing about sports. She strongly believes sports ties people together, in addition to making them feel physically and emotionally better.
