Part of the One Team Singapore Campaign, Singaporeans pledged their support by posting their photo on social media accounts with the hashtag “#OneTeamSG”.

NTUC FairPrice customers with a receipt also stood a chance to win Team Singapore premiums and NTUC vouchers at the Pledge, Spin and Win! booth.

Team Singapore mascot Nila also made an appearance at the JEM and Jurong Point hypermarts last Saturday and Sunday respectively to help drum up support in the lead up to the Olympics and Paralympics.

Many Singaporeans were keen to wish our athletes all the best in the upcoming Games and hoped they would do the country proud.

Wong Si Yun was particularly heartened to see Singaporeans taking a leap to represent the country in such a large event.

“I wish that more Singaporeans will have the courage to represent the Republic, and not just in the Olympic Games,” the 77-year-old said.

“We are only a small country, a dot on the world map; so all TeamSG athletes should give themselves credit for their brave effort in coming forward to represent the country.”

“So I wish them all the best, all the luck, and to bring more medals back to the republic.”

Meenu Saharan, 33, also offered her well wishes for the Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

“I wish you all the best for whatever you are doing. We are so proud of you and we really hope that you come back home with a medal,” she said.

“Make us proud. Actually, make our country proud. Thank you so much.”
