In an interview with the media after Joseph Schooling's historic Olympic gold medal win in the 100m butterfly event, Colin Schooling, the father of Joseph expressed his joy at the win and humbly insisted his boy had nothing special about him and that he was just a boy interested in sports.
Mr Schooling shared that this was all about love, if you love your offspring, and if you treasure them, just believe in them. He also wanted this victory to give hope to the children of Singapore that anything is possible if you have the drive to achieve.
"The most important thing is to be an ambassador for all our children in Singapore that gives them hope that they also can do it."
