Ray of Hope, A: Inspiring Stories of 50 Singapore Sports Icons (Hardcover)
Sports in Singapore is perhaps one of the most under-rated and under-supported industries in the economy. There is no available data to show how much sports contributes to the economy or even how much the industry is worth in Singapore today.Despite these challenges in the sports eco-system, Singapore has successfully groomed a number of home-grown champions who punched above their weight in international sporting events and brought glory to the nation. The supporting cast of sports coaches and administrators also merit special mention for contributing to the success of these champions.Featuring the likes of Oon Jin Teik, Joscelin Yeo, Ang Peng Siong, Hariss Harun, Fandi Ahmad and Yip Pin Xiu, A Ray of Hope captures the thoughts and ideas of these Singapore sports icons. They tell their stories through their personal and professional lenses and also offer ideas on improving the local sports industry. This book is a tribute to those who helped shape the sports scene in Singapore.
