President's Message

We’re now less than two months away from the 2016 Olympics, and our athletes recently have left our shores to compete in the US in preparation for Rio.


May was an eventful month for the Singapore Swimming Association. We announced our largest sponsorship deal, by agreeing to a $1.6million with Sportz and Fitness Team Pte Ltd, the sole licensee and distributor for TYR in Singapore and Southeast Asia. As part of the sponsorship, athletes from our four disciplines have access to durable, uniquely designed swimsuits, cutting edge equipment, innovative caps, goggles and apparel from TYR until Tokyo 2020.  

 

With the school holidays, many of our athletes are headed overseas for training stints. Our Water Polo Under-23 team headed to Tianjin, China for an exchange training and sparring programme to hone their skills as they gear up for major competitions later this year. The NTC senior swimmers are in Fort Lauderdale for a one month training camp ahead of the Rio Olympics in August. We wish them all the very best!    

 

While our athletes are getting ready for the Olympics, we would also like to congratulate Vice-President (Diving) William Lee and former Vice-President (Synchronised Swimming) Steve Chew for being selected to judge at the Olympics. William and Steve are the first Singaporeans who will be judging diving and synchronised swimming respectively at the upcoming Games and it is a great honour as they fly the Singapore flag high. This is significant for the two aquatic disciplines as they continue to gain global recognition. 

 

This month, we will be holding our Annual General Meeting on 30 June and the notice of the AGM has been sent out.
