Mant and Bryan, both 15, are two such ambassadors from this YTSA programme. They were very hyped up during the swimming finals this evening. After seeing Singapore dominate a few events, Bryan described his feeling of pride as a “flame burning inside me”. They found the Women’s 4x100 metres freestyle relay final the most exciting event of the day. The event saw Quah Ting Wen, Lim Xiang Qi, Hoong En Qi, Chan Alif Abdullah Nur Marina win gold for Singapore.
When asked what values they learnt from the games, they said: ” Perseverance and hard work. As the event’s emcee said, age is not a problem; it is a matter of effort you put inside to train.”
Mant and Bryan feel that Team Singapore has done a good job in the SEA Games so far, earning 45 medals. Out of these medals 17 comprise of gold medals, 11 silver and 17 bronze. They hope that Team Singapore will continue making the country proud.
