Amateurs, pros to join in fun at National Games


Mr Chye Tse King, 40, learnt the butterfly stroke six months ago and will be representing Sembawang in the Masters 100m fly swimming event at the Singapore National Games next month.

The Sembawang resident may find himself coming up against former national swimmer Desmond Koh, 39, a three-time Olympian and one-time national record holder for the 400m individual medley event.

Mr Koh will be swimming in the Masters men's 100m breaststroke and 100m butterfly categories for the Moulmein-Kallang cluster.

Registration has closed, but anyone can take part in the inaugural games designed to foster friendship between different communities, whether you are a recreational sportsman, or a national athlete.
