I was appointed the team manager and relay coach for the Asian Games squad. Mr role was to ensure that the programme ran smoothly so that the coaches and athletes would prepare themselves well for their competitions. It was really hectic on the first 3 days but the situation improved after that.
In general, the overall standard at the Asian Games had improved tremendously. I had also witnessed some world class performances by athletes from China, Japan, Qatar, Bahrain, India, etc. While the other asian countries were improving by leaps and bounds, Singapore seemed to be stagnating.
