No Pride in 76% of Medals Won By Foreign-born Athletes

The Commonwealth Games have ended in Glasgow, Scotland.

Singapore has won medals in 5 events at the Games – table-tennis, shooting, badminton, swimming, and gymnastics.

The total number of medals given out for the five events is 38.

Out of these 38 medals, 29 medals were won by foreign-born Singaporeans from different countries.

This means Singapore-born athletes won only 9 medals.

China-born Singaporeans collected the most number of medals – 23 – mainly from table-tennis.

The rest of the 29 medals were won by Indonesia- , Malaysia- and Thailand-born Singaporeans.

The final medal tally means that foreign-born Singaporeans collected a whopping 76% of the medals won by Singapore at the Games.

Singapore won 8 gold, 5 silver and 4 bronze medals in Glasgow.

This was a poorer showing than the 11-11-9 medal haul in 2010 in Delhi.

Do you feel proud that 76% of the medals were won by foreign-born athletes?
