The Singapore National Olympic Council (SNOC) on Wednesday appointed Annabel Pennefather as the Republic's chef de mission to December's SEA Games in Myanmar.

She is an SNOC vice-president and is also a former president of the Singapore Hockey Federation.

A lawyer by profession, she is a veteran in leading Singapore athletes to major tournaments, having also been the chef de mission to the 2002 Commonwealth Games, 2004 Olympics, 2006 Asian Games and, most recently, the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Pennefather, 63, also sits on the steering committee of the 2015 SEA Games. She hopes her experience in Myanmar will be helpful when the Republic hosts the next edition of the biennial event.
