Yay for Singapore
What a nice piece of news to welcome me back to Singapore from church camp! Immediately after reaching home and passing the cheeseburger to my Dad, he promptly informed us that Singapore had triumphed over China in the women’s table tennis finals in the Table Tennis world cup, after a hard-fought win from Feng Tianwei.
My father was marvelling at how Singapore, the proverbial David, had toppled the Goliath of China. I noted to him that both finalists were Chinese, but he said something very astute, which is that despite this, one triumphed over the other because of the dedication to developing this talent and the environment also. I had to admit he had a point. If they had remained in China, they might not have had the opportunity and grooming to shine like they are for Singapore right now. Awesome!
