Live telecast of Olympics adds to SG51 cheer

I applaud national broadcaster Mediacorp's sealing of a deal to broadcast the Rio Olympics live ("Olympics: Eleventh-hour deal struck for live broadcast in Singapore"; ST Online, yesterday).

Being able to watch our athletes in action live is double joy, since the Olympic Games coincide with our SG51 National Day celebrations.
