The difference between how the Malaysian media talks about their athletes that don’t win gold medals vs. how the Singaporean media talk about theirs.
Rather embarrassing behavior from the local media, from them chewing out Quah Zheng Wen to this. Regardless of how they do or what media sound bites they don’t give you, these athletes represent the country and we should be so proud of them. It wasn’t that long ago that we glorified our athletes regardless, but you win just ONE gold medal and suddenly that’s the new minimum requirement.
Singapore stands behind #TeamSingapore and thanks you for your performance at #Rio2016
