“In 90 days, we will host the SEA Games – the region’s most iconic sporting event. The spotlight will be on Singapore, so let us all come together as a nation, as One Team Singapore, to give our Team Singapore athletes the boost to reach their best.”
Wong added that everyone is a member of One Team Singapore and that national pride is at stake as the athletes are competing on home soil.
Supporters turned up dressed in red at Orchard Road yesterday to count down the 90th day before the games and to show their support.
EXCO Chairman of Singapore Southeast Asian Games Organising Committee (SINGSOC) Lim Teck Yin said: “We are the hosts and we should make all our guests – athletes, officials and friends from the South-east Asian community feel welcomed. So, let’s own the Games and extend the best hospitality to the region. As we cheer for our athletes, remember to encourage other athletes too. After all, we are all friends from the South-East Asian community.”
