Asian Games Doha
Thursday, December 07, 2006
Firstly..I'm gonna make it clear once and for all..I'M NOT BECOMING EMO AND NEITHER AM I GAY.
these few days I've been a keen follower of the Doha Asian Games and there's one thing that I truly noticed..
Its dominated by the chinese and japanese..and this is the reason why some might prefer to switch their television off when the live coverage of the games are telecasted..
You'll get sick seeing the winner of each race,each event,each sport is either China or Japan..its rare to see other nations having a representative on the winner's podium..
Although we have launched many campaigns to support Team Singapore..somehow the players themselves seemed to be not motivated at all..
Well sorry to have quoted that but that's what I noticed whilst watching Li Jiawei play..during her game..she was seemingly distracted and her play was inconsistent and its as if she was like depending on the opponent to do a mistake..
Maybe her failed marriage is the cause of such performance...hmm..
But that shouldnt be the case..She's a professional and being one she has to set aside all her other problems and be more commited towards the competition..
but alas..I didnt see that..only a distracted Li Jiawei..
Although I might sound a little too harsh but I do believe that Singapore do have its own talent pool..
even though we might not have a huge one like China..but we can still make do with what we have..
Carl Lewis..American legendary sprinter and long jump-er came to Singapore the other day..and he said that its not an impossible thing for Singaporeans to achieve it big on the world stage..he said that with proper training and dedication,Singaporeans might even be seen breaking world records..
But that would only be possible if our sportsmen and sportswomen are more dedicated and have a willling to learn attitude and not resting their laurels on past sucesses..
Only then we can hear our national anthem being played during the prize giving ceremony at the Olympics..
ha ha ha..ok mike stop it..its so unlike you..
ha ha ha ha..
" ..it's all about you now.. "
