My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed cheering on our local athletes as well as our foreign guests at the Asean Para Games last Saturday.
They may have physical disabilities, but their fighting spirit was in full force.
I was touched by their courage and perseverance in training under challenging circumstances. I was also awed by the fervent cheers and support.
Kudos also to the volunteers who were helpful, thoughtful and full of smiles in greeting everyone.
I was even happier to see other families with their children, and some even came in wheelchairs and crutches to watch the events.
From the organising committee to the spectators and the cleaners, it was a job well done.
The athletes are all winners, with or without medals. I hope their fighting spirit continues.
