Corporate giants should back rising sporting stars

To ensure that our national hero, Joseph Schooling, who won Singapore's first Olympic gold medal, and other up-and-coming athletes continue the quest for further success, Singapore corporate giants, such as DBS Bank, United Overseas Bank, Singapore Airlines and Singtel, should take this opportunity to anchor all our athletes as their advertising ambassadors, with generous fees.

We have had several world champion bowlers, and a brave and tough group of female mountaineers, among other talents. Let us ensure that they do not drop out and fade away because of a lack of funds to support their goals.
