YOG Soccer: Singapore CUBS!

Of the many sports Singapore's athletes engage in the inaugural Youth Olympic Games (YOG), i love most to watch our blooming boys from Singapore National Football Team of under 15 years old (U-15).

The most amazing things of watching the Singapore local team?

They are made up of Singaporean from different ethnic races! It's both fascinating and emotive to watch our Chinese, Malay, Indian, and even 1 Caucasian boy striving towards 1 common goal - to win pride for the country.

Their playing, working together and friendship shared exhibit true Singapore Spirit!

When they were defeated by crafty Haiti, we wept with the young hearts; when they bounce back from their semi-final disconcertment by blitzing Montenegro 4-1 to bag the bronze medal tonight, we rejoiced NOT for the medal but for these juniors who rekindled their spirits..!
