By the time you read this, it would have been passé. I'm the type who would deliberately restrain comments if things are a little current & hot off the press. In any case, today was a moment in history indeed. The country have been chasing an Olympic gold since its silver achievement in 1960 (weightlifting) & even treading the naturalized citizen path for a certain niche sports which I won't mention here (feeling a little repulsive already, mind you). Ironically, the individual to have successfully brought glory to the nation is a true citizen; born here, bred here, of very supportive parents. So let this be a lesson in pure aspiration, chasing dreams & embracing them at the end of it all. There are many ways to bring glory to the country & the world is watching.
So my heartfelt congratulations to the Son of Singapore, Joseph Schooling for attaining the GOLD standard in the 100m butterfly, men's category, 2016 Rio Olympic Games. A proud moment indeed.
