This July’s competitions will see a good mix of rising stars and skilled veterans taking the stage.

 

Some of them are young, or new to the field. Others are experienced, accomplished athletes. Nonetheless, one thing is for sure – our TeamSG athletes are always raring to do the nation proud, no matter where they are in the world.

 

Have a look at the competitions that they will be participating in this July!
