SINGAPORE - Trailblazers In Singapore Sports, a book produced by the students of NPS International (NPSI), was launched by Singapore Sports School board member Mirza Namazie at the school's premises on Friday.

The book celebrates the achievements of Singapore's veteran and current sportsmen, such as Ang Peng Siong, Fandi Ahmad, Dipna Lim-Prasad and Poh Seng Song, and notes how their contributions have driven the youth of the Republic to pursue sport at a higher level and become balanced individuals.

It was compiled by 25 NPSI students, who are aspiring journalists. They interviewed 21 Singapore sports personalities themselves and wrote the articles.

The 120-page book, which can be bought against a charity contribution of $20 or higher, is available at NPS International (10 & 12 Chai Chee Lane,Singapore 469021 & 469022). 

The proceeds will go to a sports charity.
